What to my wondering eyes should appear but a Supreme Court taking up marriage equality…in two, count ‘em, two cases, this spring.
We get around to discussing the two cases before SCOTUS, like to be argued in March and decided in June. Mike in particular had figured they’d duck the issue until public opinion was even […]

Of course, like the rest of the nation and world, Ryan and Mike were disturbed, saddened and angered by this week’s murder of 20 first graders and seven adults, and even the suicide of the shooter. We’re in the this-is-exactly-the-time-to-talk-solutions camp.
We don’t see gun laws and regs as THE solution, but certainly as a necessary […]

Malia Re-Schedule

December 11, 2012 | Leave a Comment

Our podcast service badly misbehaved today. We could not get Rep. Liz Malia’s call to connect. She hung in their patiently while Mike worked at the console to no avail.
She’d done really important work that you need to know about. If she’s game, we’ll re-schedule.

Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 2:30 PM Eastern when MA Rep. Liz Malia is the guest. She is co-chair of the Joint Substance Abuse and Mental Health Committee. We’ll talk her recent big bill on prescription and other drug abuse. She also advocates for mental health parity.

We’ll speculate tomorrow. Boston’s mayor might well not run again. MA’s governor can’t by term limits. We’ll muse on those and maybe throw in some punditry on the US Senate seat here.
Join us if you can Tuesday, December 4th at 2:30 Eastern for Without the Usual Suspects. You can always catch the show later at […]
