It’s been a week and we’re back with the second episode of Ohio Politics Explained, a new podcast from the USA TODAY Network Ohio Bureau.

Each week, we catch you up on the state’s political news of the week in 15 minutes or less. This week, host Anna Staver was joined by bureau chief Jackie Borchardt.
