Episode 331 – The Momentum Builds

A dark-toned photograph shows a mature cannabis plant just starting to show a flowered-top. The photo appears to be taken at night with the plant lit by overhead illumination- the background of the photo is cast in darkness.

Taylor West and first-time guest Anne Donohoe joins host Ben Larson to talk about the growing momentum behind progressive cannabis reform, as marijuana-related ballot measures swept the recent elections; the recent robust earners reports from various legal marijuana MSOs; and a check-in on the year 2020 with an eye on 2021. Produced by Shea Gunther.

A clear short round glass jar sits on a blurred tabletop with two marijuana buds sticking out the top- one taller than the other. The jar's top is seen even more blurred set farther back on the table.

Kris Krane joins host Heather Sullivan to parse the good and bad, or the thorn and rose, of the recent 2020 U.S. elections, where marijuana legalization ballot measures won in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, Mississippi, and South Dakota. Produced by Shea Gunther.

Episode 320 – A Return to Fire Season

A firefighting airplane releases its rusty-red load of fire retardant chemicals on an unseen fire below. The smoke is reaching up towards the plane which is set against a backdrop of tall green pine trees fringing a light blue-sky with just the barest hint of a cloud.

Troy Dayton and first-time guest Kieran Ringgenberg joins host Ben Larson to talk about the wildfires ravaging California, the current unrest around civil rights issues, and the recent Republican National Convention. Produced by Shea Gunther.
