  • Conservative Portland talk radio host Lars Larson was one of the first people to ask a question at a White House press briefing via Skype. We talk to him about his career, and what it’s like to be a talk radio host in this particular political moment.
  • We discuss the death penalty in Washington state as part of our series on capital punishment. Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee imposed a moratorium on the death penalty in 2014, and in late December commuted the sentence of a man scheduled to to be executed for the aggravated murder of a 14-year-old girl.
