Prognosis Ohio: The State of the Statehouse with the Ohio Capital Journal

On the latest episode of Prognosis Ohio, part of the WCBE Podcast Experience, host Dan Skinner talks with David DeWitt, editor, as well as reporter Jake Zuckerman, both of the Ohio Capital Journal, to make sense of comings and goings at the Ohio Statehouse over the past few months. Since Prognosis Ohio has been on hiatus since June, a round-up was in order, and who better to catch us up that two journalists with their ear to the ground?

Topics include the state of anti-mask and anti-vaccine legislation in Ohio, how history is likely to remember this summer of attacks on public health measures, and what we can expect from the General Assembly in the coming months. Also on the show: developments in anti-abortion law and sports betting, among other topics. The glass is half-empty, folks. No silver linings here.
