Taxes and Death- SMSL002



For their pilot podcast Jessica and Kyler seek to find out what people think about the tax bill the Republicans are pushing through Congress.  The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that taxes are super confusing and no one really knows what is in the bill.  Jessica speaks with Kara Krasnoff, a California tax preparer, on the proposed changes to the tax code.  Kara describes these changes as drastic.  Then Kyler sits down with Grant Mattive, whose family operates a potato packing operation and farm. Together they mull over what the new tax bill would mean for business owners.  It seems that both parties are in agreement that the new plan will not improve our tax system or help middle class families. Take a listen.


Introduction- SMSL001



A brother and sister find themselves living in two different bubbles – one in rural conservative Colorado and the other in liberal urban Los Angeles. Join these two as they talk about current issues that pop up in the news with their local friends and neighbors. Together they try to find common ground among these groups who might have more in common than they think.
