My Old Kentucky Podcast

Perry Bacon Jr, Special Session/SCOKY Ruling, Edelen for Governor, & much more!

December 20, 2018

We were thrilled to welcome FiveThirtyEight Senior Political Writer (and Kentucky resident) Perry Bacon Jr. to the show!  We spoke about the connection between Kentucky politics and national politics, his career, and what the future might hold for Democrats in Kentucky.  At the end of the interview, Perry starts interviewing us, and even gets our take on the 2020 Presidential election!

Before our interview, there was SO MUCH to talk about!  We discuss the Supreme Court ruling throwing out SB 151, which led to a two day special session -- listen up to learn all the details of what went down during a wild week!  Plus, Insider Louisville published a tip that Adam Edelen might run for governor.  We discuss that possibility and what that ticket might do in the race.  Plus, Jazmin explains to us Gov. Bevin's blow-up at ProPublica, and the Kentucky GOP's FOIA requests for Kentucky teachers' emails.
