Studying for midterms

i voted stickerMidterm elections are happening Tuesday November 4th, and they’re making us as anxious and cranky as, well, midterm exams used to. Our friend and frequent MSNBC guest Bill Scher takes some time from his busy schedule writing for Campaign for America’s Future and other publications to try and soothe us. We also give our take on some of the local races, and discuss some of the philosophical debates raised by the ballot questions – for instance, why is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts supporting a monopoly? Why can’t our downtown businesses get the same guarantees of no competition from the state? These and other spleen ventings await you in this extra long episode of The Bill Dwight Show!

Oh, and Happy Halloween!

Terrible Tuesdays

Bill and Jaz are suffering from sleep deprivation, flooding, and an infestation of ants, just to name a few things. Nerves are starting to fray. Luckily, Bill Scher and State Senator Stan Rosenberg are on the phone to bring calm and order to the day’s proceedings.

Also, I’m not sure why you can barely hear Bill in the first few moments, but it seemed to correct itself.

Conventions, Casinos, and Cannabis

We talk to Franklin-Hampshire State Senator Stan Rosenberg about the recent state Democratic convention, and what he thinks about Deval Patrick’s chances for re-election. We also have an in-depth discussion about the senator’s decision to vote for casinos in Massachusetts, wherein Bill makes his case for legalizing marijuana.
