“The cynical politics of Kenosha” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast 

We discuss the electoral politics of the Kenosha controversy and the push for meaningful action against structural racism with our regular panel and special guests Supreme Moore Omokunde and State Rep.

Why is a Democratic administration withholding vital public health information?
