Times Radio Ep. 2 -- Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton

We sat down with Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton to chat. Topics included gun violence, mental health, city services to the homeless, ARPA money, mediocre gun owners, the Coach Cal/Mark Stoops beef, and more.

Correction: when I referenced the homicide rate being higher in Lexington than Detroit or New York combined, the data I was referencing had incorrectly omitted Detroit from their rankings, so while Lexington does have a higher murder rate than a lot of bigger cities, Detroit is not one of them. Sorry about that and thanks to the Reddit user who pointed this out.
