Josh and David open with a discussion about the murder indictment against now-former Decatur Police Officer Mac Bailey Marquette for the death of Steve Perkins.
In the guest segment, Decatur attorney Carl Cole joins the podcast to talk the latest developments in the case and why there haven’t been more charges. They also touch on protests in Decatur and comments made by Mayor Tam Bowling regarding permits for protests.
They close with an analysis of the 2nd Congressional District race and this week’s Rightwing Nut of the Week.

We take a bit of time each week to answer questions from our audience about Alabama politics — or Alabama in general. If you have a question about a politician, a policy, or a trend — really anything — you can shoot us an email at [email protected] or with this form.
You can also send it to us on Facebook and Twitter. Or by emailing us a voice recording to our email with your question, and we may play it on air.
Either way, make sure you include your name (first name is fine) and the city or county where you live.
