Every week, St. Louis Public Radio’s Chris McDaniel joins the St. Louis Beacon’s Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum to talk about the week’s politics.

On this week's show: Jo is out on vacation, but we are joined by Democratic Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal. She discusses the Normandy School District busing students to Francis Howell, as well as guns and gangs in St. Louis. During the show, libertarian billionaire Rex Sinquefield disclosed a whopping $1.3 million donation to a group pressuring lawmakers to over-ride Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of an income tax bill. Chappelle-Nadal discusses her view of Missouri's biggest campaign contributor, and the story of how she met him.
