On today’s episode, Adrienne and Louis discuss the latest big Supreme Court ruling about women’s reproductive rights. Including an interview with State Representative Park Cannon, we’re talking about the impact of the ruling across southern states and what changes this might mean for the state of Georgia.
Along that same theme of healthcare, we’re also talking about Medicaid. Senator Renee Unterman, who in the past has said she was against Medicaid expansion, has changed her tune. We’re talking about why she’s had a change of heart, and the danger of money in politics.
