In our first Politically Speaking before a live audience, Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum of the St. Louis Beacon join St. Louis Public Radio's Marshall Griffin and Chris McDaniel to discuss everything Missouri legislature related.

In part one of our show, we discuss our key takeaways from the 2013 session, and what we predict will be contentious issues come September's veto-session.

And in part two, we open it up to audience questions, discussing everything from education committee reassignments to energy to ethics changes.
