EPISODE 009 | Police Contracts & Closed Borders

This week’s RANGE comes in two parts.

  • PART 1 | A Letter to My City Council Members | Offers a little background on the soon to be voted-upon police contract as a warm up for a dramatic reading of a letter Luke wrote this week asking Spokane City Council to tear it up with extreme prejudice.
  • PART 2 | Our Borders, Ourselves | We reach the conclusion of the awesome interview with Yakima immigration attorney Stephen Robbins, where the conversation turns toward some of the more mundane, overlooked atrocities of Trump’s immigration policy and also some (infuriatingly) hilarious reflections on our dumb, dehumanizing border policy.



  • I’ve never seen Mr Smith Goes to Washington, but for some reason that image of Jimmy Stewart staring mournfully up at a broken system is seared into my memory.
  • Apparently the movie was loosely based on a Montana Senator.


We need 55 new members by September 30 to stay on our path to sustainability. Will you join us today?
