On this episode of the LeftMN Radio Hour, the last episode of the LeftMN Radio Hour, we talk with the creator of the Stealing Home podcast David Temple. If you couldn't tell by the title, Stealing Home is a baseball themed podcast, and baseball is mostly what we talk about on the show this week.
Before that we do one last Weekly Wrap primarily concerning Michele Bachmann, but also concerning the Minnesota Republican party's lack of any viable candidates to run against Mark Dayton in 2014.
While I may actually cut together a sort of best of show, this will be the very last show with hot new political content. Don't fret though, while the LeftMN Radio Hour is going away, there will likely be something new that rises, phoenix-like, from the ashes of the LeftMN Radio Hour. But for now, I need a break.

On this weeks episode of the LeftMN Radio Hour, we welcome back Mark Osler to talk about guns and kittens. Seriously, guns and kittens. If you don't know what kittens have to do with guns than you need to listen. We also talk about the Supreme Courts decision in Heller and how that has changed the debate.
Before that we discuss the rapidly approaching committee deadlines in the Minnesota legislature and what pieces of legislation are still pending. We also discuss the big news of the week including voter fraud, the formation of the non-Prince purple caucus, Norm Coleman's big announcement and some movement on Marriage equality.

This week on the LeftMN Radio Hour we talk with Erin Anderson, Executive Director of Health Care for all Minnesota. The conversation starts with the current state of health care in Minnesota and what changes we can expect as a result of Obamacare. We than get into why single payer is still needed, despite Obamacare.
Before that, and as always, Aaron and myself discuss some of the news of the week. That news includes developments in the push for Marriage equality; featuring the actual introduction of a piece of legislation, NOM's feeble attempts to scare people from voting for it and the always classy Senator Dan Hall trying to make this a civil rights issue for the haters. Also, the budget.
