Guests: Daniel Simmons-Richie, John Fetterman, Jenny Rose Carey

On this week’s Regional Roundup: we’ll hear about how the Pennsylvania State Police have not been documenting the race of drivers being pulled over in the commonwealth, making it difficult to track instances of racial profiling. Joining us is DANIEL SIMMONS-RICHIE, co-author of the story for Spotlight PA. Then, Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor JOHN FETTERMAN just wrapped up a lengthy “listening tour” where he heard from Pennsylvanians about their thoughts on legalizing recreational marijuana. He’ll tell us what he heard and the prospect of recreational marijuana in Pennsylvania. Lastly, we’ll learn about fall gardening – planting, pruning, and cleanup and we get an update on the invasive and destructive spotted lantern fly when Mary speaks with JENNY ROSE CAREY, Director of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s public garden and nursery.
