About this Episode

Peter Schorsch talks with political strategist Ryan Wiggins about her time in Tallahassee this Legislative Session and how she’s coping with the new threat of the coronavirus and the social distancing that comes with it.

Wiggins opens up about a heart-wrenching story about her own mother’s close call with the illness. After returning from a trip to Texas, her mom developed coronavirus symptoms but was unable to obtain testing.

Wiggins also shares her frustrations with legislation that died this year that would have let seriously ill state workers accept help from coworkers like meals or GoFundMe contributions.

But don’t worry, as Wiggins assures in the podcast, the measure will come back in January and, yes, January will come.
