Episode 5 - Brandi Fisher and Rev. Aaron Roberts

Our guests for Episode 5 were Brandi Fisher, executive director of the MainStream Coalition, and Rev. Aaron Roberts of the Colonial Church in Prairie Village.  The discussion dealt with the Governor's State of the State address as well as church and state issues and how this particular Governor has no regard for the separation of church and state as clearly outlined in the U.S. Constitution.  Issues included the possibility of changing how appellate-level judges are appointed in Kansas as well as school funding as required by the state Constitution.

Brandi would like us to mention that there will be a forum on judicial appointments on Thursday, January 24 at 7 pm at the Colonial Church.  The panel will include former State Senator Tim Owens and Lee Smithyman, President of the Kansas Bar Association.

Tonight's beer was from Sierra Nevada Brewery Ruthless Rye IPA.  The brewery is located in Chico, California, making this the first non-local beer featured on the podcast.

Once again, I would like to thank Zach's wife Emily for filling in for me as I was unavailable for production.
