The COVID-19 pandemic has left Kansas embroiled in economic chaos. Tens of thousands out of work, severely delayed payment of unemployment claims, and a wave of fraudulent jobless claims are among the turmoil the state has suffered over the past nine months.

Legislators provided a fiery tit-for-tat debate on several of these issues. In this edition of the Kansas Reflector podcast, host Tim Carpenter guides us through the proceedings.
