7: Criminal Justice Reform ft. Representative Leslie Herod and Baby Adella Garnett (Day 71, 3/15/19)
This week we talk with Representative Leslie Herod (HD-8) about criminal justice reform in Colorado and her bills to "ban the box" and bond/bail reform. 8-month-old Adella Garnett pops up throughout the podcast with insightful noises. We also talk about last week's "bomb cyclone" and how the Senate Republicans stole our idea about reading the 2,000 page Title 12 bill at length.
This week's HD-2 business of the week is Platt Park Brewing Brewing Company(www.plattparkbrewing.com).
