On this week’s podcast, Austin and Benji dig into the state Board of Corrections’ suspension of the governor’s corrections secretary, Joe Profiri. (Note: We recorded this episode midday on Friday, Dec. 15. Just a few hours later, a Pulaski County circuit judge granted a temporary restraining order requested by the Board of Corrections. Catch up on the latest on the Arkansas Blog.)

Austin and Benji also discuss the Little Rock School District’s approval of a (hugely) increased construction budget for the new West high school. Austin Bailey catches up on the city beat with reporter Mary Hennigan. And, endorsements from Benji and Omaya.
