    Episode 12 Primary Wrapup

    Mike, Amanda, and Brian discuss the 2018 General Primary in Delaware County and across Pennsylvania. They review the primary process, discuss voter turnout, share outrageous tales of working and volunteering, review the winning candidates, and sing a jaunty little tune. Then, the gang answers listener questions about the Santa Fe High School shooting in Texas, engaging young voters, not trusting anybody over 30, balancing leadership with the will of the people, and pie. Plus, one of the easiest rounds of "What Did Millennials Kill This Week?" ever, and a couple of BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS.
