28 | 2022 Wyoming Budget Session

-----Description of Podcast-----

National politics get so much attention nowadays that it is often the impact of state governments that is not discussed. Spencer Travis takes a deep dive on the 2022 Wyoming Budget Session, with YuYu Yuan, and finds that the issues on the national level are not as important as what happens at the state level.

-----About The Half Hour-----

The Half Hour is a current events podcast designed with the intention of helping Extemp competitors (and other Speech and Debate members, as well as listening for the general public) understand the importance of political, social, or economical events on a domestic and international scale. As Extemp competitors only have half an hour to prep a speech, the podcast is designed to brief competitors in the same amount of time it would take for them to prep. Each episode looks at both sides of current events while providing background information to help expand upon the issue. The Half Hour also looks into common questions that people may be asked relating to current events and will work to answer them based on credible news sources from both sides.
