Maine Beacon: Mainers Should Demand Testing, Not Tourism

This week on the Beacon Podcast, Esther, Ben and Mike discuss new announcements about Maine’s reopening plan and COVID-19 testing capacity.

Also: Tax breaks for the wealthy, not desperately-needed services, should be on the chopping block as Maine legislators consider the state budget.

Plus: Twitch streams and fairy houses.
