On Branson's final day as Betty's intern, she is back on the air to delve far and wide into the electoral college, and what we can do to improve it. Branson is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, and just finished working as Keith Ellison's Organizing Fellow for the 2016 election cycle. In addition to discussing the electoral college, we will discuss what it was like working during this election cycle and discuss the recount efforts. Listen this Sunday on AM950 Radio, or download our podcast anytime!
Next up, we have Sandy Pappas, DFL endorsed Senator from District 65. We will continue to examine the president elect Donald Trump, and what his win and a Hillary loss means for our society. We discuss how women can remain during a political period that seems set on rolling back the clock on women's healthcare.
This week we have two fabulous guests to talk about what needs to change in our education system. Our guests are Helen Bassatt, an at-large representative on the Robbinsdale Area school board and Abdi Sabrie, a member of the Mankato school board. We will be discussing gender and race discrimination in education, the difference between the achievement gap and the opportunity gap, and just how important school board leadership is.

Our countdown to the election continues with another great show! Our guest this week is Paul Thissen, former Speaker of the Minnesota House of Representatives. We'll be delving into what Paul and Betty believe Democratic priorities are this cycle nationally and in Minnesota, and key races to watch our state. Tune in this Sunday at 2 pm on AM950 Radio!
