Opinion: Obama and Springsteen's podcast reveals one big problem

If you had any doubts that podcasting had gone from fashionable to fully mainstream, you need look no further than the latest Spotify original, "Renegades: Born in the USA," for proof that they have. Hosted by former President Barack Obama and current rocker Bruce Springsteen, the show centers on a series of conversations between the two men and their experiences growing up as outsiders. It is necessarily nostalgic — neither Obama nor Springsteen has been an outsider in a very long time — and the title reflects that, calling back to the hosts' glory days: "Renegade" was Obama's Secret Service name, and "Born in the U.S.A." was Springsteen's best-selling album, released in 1984.

Keep your eye on Kentucky's voting plans

Many Republican-led state legislatures are crafting new voter restrictions in the wake of the 2020 election, but one particularly red state may buck that trend. Kentucky is considering a bill that would actually expand voter access while also enhancing integrity measures.

It's a lesson in what's possible in the all-too-partisan world of election law. Other states should take notice.
