Hot off the Mac—it’s the latest Dakota Free Press Podcast! In Episode #16, friend of the blog Joe Berns joins co-host Spencer Dobson to sit in on Aberdeen’s latest fearfest, the June 16 anti-Muslim slideshow featuring “Understanding the Threat” book peddlers John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz. Joe and Spencer survived with their logic and mortality intact!
But first, Spencer and I talk about…
- whether Randy Bryce has what Democrats need to win,
- how campaign finance law in South Dakota remains far too friendly to big money,
- what good the latest ruling against Trump and Dakota Access does, and
- Cory’s field trip to Pierre to speak up for direct democracy!
