This week Robert and Matt Erwin discuss this week's news including a train derailment in Rockcastle County, new insights into the Old National Bank mass shooter, Josie Raymond deciding to run for Metro Council, Hunter Biden offering to testify publicly before Jamie Comer's committee, and Mac Brown leaving the Republican Party of Kentucky. Plus, at Matt's request, a little bit of college football talk.
Warning: Matt uses some language that's a bit saltier than a typical MOKP episode.
