Episode 31: Police Subpoena Battle, SPD Defunding Decisions, and Protesting Comes Home

Aug 3, 2020 | Podcast

Learn about the latest in local public affairs in about the time it takes for a coffee break! Brian Callanan of Seattle Channel and Kevin Schofield of Seattle City Council Insight discuss the complexities of the Seattle Police Department’s subpoena asking for raw footage and images from local media outlets, the Seattle City Council’s budgeting plan to defund the Seattle Police Department, a recall effort in court facing Mayor Jenny Durkan, and protests happening at the Mayor’s and Councilmembers’ homes. Plus, Kevin and Brian tangle over the time-honored “take a nibble vs. cut yourself a slice” debate on baked goods on your family’s kitchen counter.
