Guests: Angela Couloumbis, Lee Siegel
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf unveiled his budget proposal yesterday for the fiscal year of 2016-2017. Making this address different is the fact that the 2015-2016 budget still has yet to get approved by the legislature in a record-breaking gridlock. We’ll hear about Wolf’s latest plan and its implications when we speak with ANGELA COULOUMBIS of The Philadelphia Inquirer, who will also update us on the status of embattled Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s law license. Then, Radio Times producer Jon Ehrens discusses the nihilism of Groucho Marx with author LEE SIEGEL, who argues that much of the existing analysis of the comedy of Groucho and his brothers is misguided in trying to peg meaning or political statements to their movies.
