With mere weeks until Election Day, amid a cacophony of sound bites, we sat down with the political junkies to help make sense of all the noise. KCTS 9 presents its newest podcast, The Analysts, featuring KCTS 9 Political Analyst Joni Balter and Q13 Political Analyst C.R. Douglas.

Listen in as Balter and Douglas discuss some of the biggest issues being debated this election season, including an analysis of the presidential debates, the Washington State Gubernatorial contest, Sound Transit 3, the 7th Congressional District race, the statewide gun-safety initiative and more.
