From CHC Radio | Part of the Conversations on Health Care series | 30:00

Logo_small This week, hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter speak with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper who discusses how expanded coverage under the ACA has improved access to health care in his state, how embedding behavioral health in primary care is improving outcomes, and how they're fighting the opioid crisis. He addresses lessons learned from the state's marijuana legalization, and his bipartisan campaign with Governor Kasich of Ohio to promote sound health policies on the federal level including funding for CHIP, Community Health Centers and expanded coverage. Marianne O'Hare has the week's health care headlines. FactCheck.org Managing Editor Lori Robertson looks at misstatements spoken about health policy in the public domain.

Sea Change Radio (Series)

Produced by Alex Wise

Most recent piece in this series:

Amy Harder: Democrats Debate Energy Policy

From Alex Wise | Part of the Sea Change Radio series | 28:20

Amy-harder_small The 2016 disagreement between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over the best energy mix to help us get to a 100% renewable future sure does seem antiquated these days with climate change deniers and fossil fuel interests at the helm in Washington. This week on Sea Change Radio, though, we get an update on the continued divisions within the Democratic Party from Axios energy reporter, Amy Harder. We discuss how the Sanders wing of the Party has been able to carve out a larger piece of the policy pie than many imagined possible, what that means for future elections and try to sort out the stances of the leading voices on the Left when it comes to natural gas and nuclear power. Then, we dig into the Sea Change Radio archives and re-visit our discussion with noted linguist George Lakoff as he gives a primer on climate change messaging – a lesson that’s more relevant and important than ever before.
