Learn about the latest in local public affairs in about the time it takes for a coffee break! Brian Callanan of Seattle Channel connects with former Seattle City Councilmember and Mayor Tim Burgess as the Council begins its two-week recess. Tim describes his ideas about what reforming the Seattle Police Department looks like, his concerns about public safety, the challenges of bridging the gaps between the Council, Mayor, and SPD, and even his brief career as a freestyle rap artist. Brian will be back with Kevin Schofield of SCC Insight soon. If you like this podcast, and want to hear it before anyone else, please support independent journalism here on Patreon!
