The Madsplainers podcast has wrapped up a series of interviews with the candidates running for Madison's mayor. Now, it's shifting focus to another major contest on this spring's ballot: the race for Madison School Board.
K-12 reporter Negassi Tesfamichael joins Abby, Erik and Lisa in the studio to talk about the curious structure of the race, the candidates who are running, and the issues, from charter school to police officers in public schools, that have come to dominate the conversation.
