Episode 13. The State of the Union and State of the State Response.
On this episode of the Salt City Throwdown Podcast we have a recording session at Adam’s house. Because our normal studio was in the middle of a massive power outage.
We break down the first week of the Utah State Legislative session and talk about the 2014 State of the State address by Governor Herbert. His policy wishes, and his bold action…. on the state tree.
Then we breakdown President Obama’s sixth state of the Union Address. Discussing topics including equal pay for equal work, and unilateral decisions to raise the minimum wage for federal contract employees.
Then we get weird.
The kids who had their lunches taken away in Salt Lake County, and how two strange bedfellows Senator’s Jim Dabakis (D – Salt Lake City) and Todd Weiler (R – Woods Cross) came together to eat lunch. (Apparently Senator Dabakis isn’t a fan of vegetables we learned via Senator Weiler’s twitter account)
Apparently Idaho, for all the times we have kicked them in the balls, did something right! They don’t take Utah’s lead and shame their students for lunch accounts going negative.
Then the woman from Arizona who tried to use poo juice to kill her husband, by trying to inject it into his IV.
Also we talk about the weird videos from BYU Idaho about pornography and masturbation, which lead to our new segment “Great headlines from the past in the Deseret News”
We close out talking about Sgt. Cory Wride of the Utah County Sheriff’s department. And a Young boy from New York State who was given a firefighter’s funeral and honor guard for his bravery in a house fire that ultimately took his life.
