Maine Beacon: The ‘Studied Ignorance’ of Susan Collins

This week on the Beacon podcast, UMaine political science professor Amy Fried joins to discuss Sen. Susan Collins’ disingenuous maneuvering on the rules of impeachment.

MPA organizer Esther Pew co-hosts this week along with Ben Chin and Mike Tipping. They discuss the State of the State, a new jail diversion bill and those signs claiming you can vote against “big pharma.”

Plus: A meditation on The Sims 4.
