The Weekly Top 3 (8.29.2022)

What happens if R’s “take back the House,” why the #AKgov’s race is MUCH closer than some think & how exactly is #AKgovt supposed to pay for itself in the “next economy” some tout

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind here at Alaskans for Sustainable Budgets — for the week of August 29, 2022.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on Facebook and YouTubeLive as well as via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6–8am. I join Michael weekly in the first hour of Tuesday’s show, from 6:25–7am, for a discussion between the two of us about our three issues.

This week our Top 3 issues are these: 1) we ask what would it mean exactly for Republicans to “take back the [Alaska] House” (1:57), 2) we explain why the Governor’s race is far from the cakewalk some currently predict (17:52), and 3) we ask how exactly Alaska is supposed to pay for itself in the state’s “next economy” some are touting (26:26).

The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available both on our Spotify and Soundcloud pages. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
