News dropped Monday that Gov. Tony Evers signed bipartisan legislation for $80 million in funding to help create an EV charging network. But should the priority be on getting charges to gas stations and businesses, or should it be focused on supplying chargers to those who rent?

Before that, however, Murphy talked about why we shouldn’t be running government like a business.

Wrapped up the show discussing some of the flaws in the US House’s vastly bipartisan legislation to essentially ban TikTok.

Murphy owns Big Bang, LLC, out of Milwaukee. He has degrees in political science and economics from UW-Milwaukee. He also ran for US Senate as a Democrat two years ago in a race won by Ron Johnson in Wisconsin.
