In brief: Award-winning photojournalist and investigator Zach D. Roberts is back to talk the current state of journalism, prompted by the extremely devastating loss of the Village Voice. We joke a bit about Uncle Joe possibly running in 2020 (almost immediately after which he’d turn 78), give John McCain the eulogy he deserves, and dig into Alaska and Kansas politics — both states have incredibly important gubernatorial elections in November. The ongoing reminder in these extraordinary times: VOTE LOCAL, It Matters.
