Jun 8, 2020 | Podcast

Learn about the latest in local public affairs with a podcast custom-made for your coffee break! Brian Callanan, Seattle Channel host, and Kevin Schofield, of Seattle City Council Insight, take a deep dive on the City of Seattle’s responses to continuing Black Lives Matter protests, the withdrawal of the motion to end the federal consent decree facing the Seattle Police Department, and the complexities of the upcoming Seattle Police Guild labor negotiations. We end our coffee-break session with some delicious baklava from Amy’s Merkato, an Eritrean and Ethiopian bakery/deli on Rainier Avenue South.
