As the Legislature nears the halfway point of the 2019 session, three Statehouse reporters join podcast host Lesley Weidenbener to talk about which issues are moving forward and which ones are fading away.

IBJ's Lindsey Erdody, The Journal Gazette's Niki Kelly and TheStatehouseFile.com columnist Mary Beth Schneider catch us up on hate crimes, teacher pay, stadium upgrades, cigarette taxes, gambling and more. And they share some insight about what might happen going forward.

Find out why Schneider says lawmakers acted like "lumps on a log" and what Kelly says is getting missed in the hate crimes debate. Plus Erdody details the latest in the debate about sports stadiums.
