I hosted Robin Hiller's radio show, State of Education, Saturday. I survived my first hosting gig without seriously embarrassing myself (wipe sweat from brow, sigh with relief) and actually enjoyed myself.

My guests were Rep. Bruce Wheeler, LD-10 (Central and Eastern Tucson) and Victoria Steele, LD-9 (Mid Tucson through the Foothills and Casa Adobes).

Wheeler was on the first half of the show. He talked about Empowerment Savings Accounts, whose name should be "Vouchers on Steroids" and discussed his comment quoted in the press: “There are ideologues in this state, unfortunately in high positions, who definitely are out to dismantle public education."

Steele was on the second half (starting around the 26 minute mark) and discussed her Mental Health First Aid legislation and related issues.

Listen to the show after the break.
