My Old Kentucky Podcast

Leader Rocky Adkins, Hampton Sues Bevin, Matt Jones & Hey Kentucky, + Jewish Hospital Purchased

August 21, 2019

This week we welcomed Democratic Leader Rocky Adkins to the show!  He's been a mainstay of Kentucky politics dating back to the late 1980s.  We talked to him about leading the Democratic caucus in the House, his recent run for Governor, and what Democratic message can unite urban and rural Kentuckians.  He spoke openly and honestly and we were thrilled to welcome him to MOKP.

We also covered plenty of news items!  Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton is suing former ticket-mate Governor Matt Bevin, Matt Jones has been ousted from Hey Kentucky (and some media outlets are reporting Amy McGrath's campaign might have something to do with that), and Jewish Hospital is being acquired by the University of Louisville.  We talked through these major stories and more.
