Finally! The latest episode of the Left of Lansing Podcast is posted!!!
As I just explained, a recent illness from a booster shot caused this week’s delay.
This week, I talk with first-term Democratic State Senator Mallory McMorrow from Royal Oak. Senator McMorrow is the youngest member in the Michigan legislature, and she’s already illustrating the kind of courage and leadership many Michiganders have been waiting to see in Lansing.
We talk about Millennial stereotypes and why some older voters fail to grasp why Millennials and Gen Z voters are passionate about changing things now. We cover why she decided to get into politics. Plus, we cover the Michigan right-wing’s push to enact anti-women’s health/anti-choice policies; her push to ban gay conversion therapy; her vote against the auto insurance “reform” bill; and how it’s time we start reinvesting back into the state of Michigan.
As you’ll hear in my monologue, I’m less than enthused about the new auto insurance “reform” bill. I’m not for bipartisanship if it results in a bill that’s going to hurt more Michiganders rather than it helps.
Finally, in my “Last Call,” I praise Attorney General Dana Nessel for pressing to close Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac, and I highlight how the Grand Rapids city council is proposing to make it a crime for people to call 9-1-1 for #LivingWhileBlack.
Again, sorry this week’s podcast was a few days late, but I hope it’s worth it!
