WUNCPolitics Podcast

Republican lawmakers are rolling out a "living wage" provision as part of the state budget.

It would apply to full-time permanent state employees, and is sure to be a stumping point on the campaign trail later this fall.

Associated Press reporter Gary Robertson chats about that budget detail, and several others, in this week's WUNC Podcast.

Other topics include, possible constitutional amendments, fatherhood, and Pete Rose.

Jeff Tiberii is the co-host of WUNC's "Due South." Jeff joined WUNC in 2011.
