Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David looks like Lando Calrissian but flies solo (Ha!) as Leslie is under the weather, but he rocks it with two great guests. For the first time we welcome, Eileen French, artist at McGuffey Art Center, who is in charge of their Art Movie Night. She also brings with her Daniella Chadwick from their Incubator Studio, and we get into both topics — the movies, the Incubator Studio, what it’s like to watch a movie outside, what it’s like to be a young artist sharing a space with six other young artists, etc. Then, Miller Murray Susen from Village School comes on the show to talk about their Fragments of the Future Award Ceremony at New Dominion Bookshop. Middle school girls from all over the area competed in the return of Village School’s short story contest. Good guests and good talks gives you a reason to get up Sunday mornings.

The 2018 Session was very different from other recent Sessions. Topics include the impact of the 2016 Presidential election of Donald Trump on the 2017 legislative elections, in which Democrats came within a hair’s breadth of capturing control of the House of Delegates, and on the 2018 General Assembly Session. Also discussed are the 2018 federal elections, the 2019 General Assembly Session and the 2019 legislative elections.

In this podcast you will learn about issues that came before the 2018 General Assembly including: Medicaid expansion and the proposed work requirement for able-bodied Medicaid recipients; the proposed hospital tax to help pay for Virginia’s share of the cost of expanding Medicaid; efforts to reform the redistricting process and end gerrymandering; bills to protect the integrity of our elections; measures to make the criminal-justice system fairer; and, locally, legislation affecting the City-County Revenue-Sharing Agreement and the relocation of the County’s courthouses.
