Race and the State Budget

In the aftermath of the controversies that gripped Richmond, lawmakers approved a budget to "begin addressing inequities" concerning race, according to the Virginia Mercury. But what kinds of policies are needed for racial reconciliation in Virginia? We'll talk to members of the General Assembly for their take on these ongoing policy questions. Check us out at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM.

Today's Guests:

Did We Lose the Cold War? / Music Festival / The Opioid Crisis

Monday, March 4, 2019

In December, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank wrote an essay about foreign policy in the Trump era titled: "It's official. We lost the Cold War." He will talk to us about his analysis, and about the latest developments from Hanoi to Washington, DC. Then, Stacy Parker will tell us about a music festival coming to our community. Finally, a former FDA official will tell us how that agency can help fight the opioid crisis. It will be a dense, thought-provoking show, and we'll want to hear from you. Call us at 1-800-940-2240 or 757-440-2665.

Today's Guests:

Dana Milbank - The Washington Post
Stacy Parker - The Virginian-Pilot
Peter Pitts - Center for Medicine in the Public Interest
