This week Jazmin walked through the US Department of Justice’s report on LMPD’s bad actions, and talked about the federal and local response to the report. The upshot: Louisville’s police department is now under a consent decree and likely will be for a long time.

Meanwhile, the legislative session is wrapping up. Robert walked through all the heavy action that both chambers had seen. Lots of bills are making their way through the process, and there are still a few days left for the legislature to finish it’s work. We recorded the show at 5:30 on Tuesday, so it’s up to date as of then.

You have probably never heard of Lynn Conway. But she was important for a number of accomplishments, and her story is important to share.
