Privilege
In this episode, I work through the concept of privilege and what it means for me as a white, male, heterosexual candidate. With the recent shooting of Ahmaud Arbery as a starting point, I try to look at how privilege continues to create a less just and equal world and what I hope I can do as a public servant to counter it.

Our Wyoming Identity
Debuting this podcast, I take some time with my longtime friend, Chris Combs, to discuss how growing up in Wyoming influenced us as adults and forged our identities.  Topics include: rural communities; public lands and open space; food production and distribution; boom and bust economies; and finally, freedom of speech and religion. Hope you enjoy this first dive into the world of podcasting.
