Oklahoma Politics

We are happy to welcome the acclaimed author (and fifth-generation Oklahoman) Rilla Askew back to our show. Askew received a 2009 Arts and Letters Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and she is a three-time recipient of the Oklahoma Book Award. Her latest novel, "Kind of Kin," is just now being published, and she joins us on ST to chat about this work.

On this installment of ST, we are discussing Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin's recent decision not to join the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act.

It's hard to believe, maybe, but Election Day arrives in less than four weeks. On this edition of our show, we chat with John Olson, the Democratic candidate for Oklahoma's 1st Congressional District. Later this month, we'll hear from Craig Allen, the Independent candidate in this race.
