WBHM Politics: Spring Break
Many schools in Alabama are on spring break this week. So we’re going to take a break too. We’ll be back with a new episode in mid-April.
We’ve also recently wrapped up our Spring Fund Drive. If you didn’t know, WBHM is a member-supported service. That means much of the money it takes to bring you this podcast comes from you, the people who listen and give. If you’ve donated already, thank you so much. If not, it’s not too late. Now’s a great time to give.
When you give through this page, you can get a WBHM Politics button as a special thank you gift.
Thanks so much!

WBHM Politics: Guns, Schools and Safety
The issue of guns and schools has been in the news the past month after a gunman walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people. In Birmingham these issues became very real when a student was shot and killed at Huffman High School earlier this month. We explore the topic through a series of conversations.
WBHM Politics: Women Running for Office
The ballot for state elections this fall is shaping up after Friday’s deadline for candidates to qualify. There are a notable number of women running for office this year. Alabama’s governor and chief justice are both women and they’re are running to keep their jobs. The #MeToo movement appears to have encouraged some women to jump into the fray as well.
