Listen now (22 mins) | The bombing may have subsided, but tensions are still high in Israel, where Israeli defense forces have had deadly clashes with Hamas terrorists. We speak to a freelance writer, who once lived in Bethesda, and now resides in Tel Aviv. Larry Luxner gives us a first-hand account of the violence and what it’s like to live in a region where air raid sirens are a common sound. We also examine how Covid-19 has impacted health insurance for thousands of Marylanders. We speak with Vinny DeMarco of the Maryland Citizens Health Initiative about a new campaign to expand affordable coverage while also controlling the spiraling cost of prescription drugs. That’s on this episode of Free State Politics.
