Today on the Inland Journal podcast, Steve Jackson has the third in a series of interviews with Spokane mayoral candidates. He’ll talk with city council president Ben Stuckart.
We’ve heard now from three of the candidates for mayor. We'll hear from the fourth and fifth, Nadine Woodward and Shawn Poole, soon.

On Monday’s Inland Journal, we’ll take a one-day break from Spokane city candidates and look at state government and the 2019 legislative session instead. We’ll talk with Sixth District state Representatives Jenny Graham and Mike Volz.

You can find the podcast by searching for Inland Journal in Apple podcasts, NPR One or Google Play. Or you can find it on the Inland Journal page of the Spokane Public Radio website.
