On this week’s edition of the On Iowa Politics podcast: U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst splits her votes on legislation providing health care for veterans harmed by serving near burn pits, Iowa Democrats’ first-in-the-nation status gets a stay of execution, and a consequential — and perhaps predictive — vote on abortion in Kansas.

On Iowa Politics is a weekly news and analysis podcast that aims to re-create the kinds of conversations that happen when you get political reporters from across Iowa together after the day's deadlines have been met.

This week’s show is hosted by The Gazette’s Statehouse Bureau Chief Erin Murphy and features Lee Des Moines Bureau chief Caleb McCullough, Gazette Opinion Editor Todd Dorman, and the Gazette’s deputy Des Moines Bureau Chief Tom Barton.

The show was produced by Stephen M. Colbert, and the music heard on the podcast is courtesy of Iowa bands Sound Thoughts and Copperhead.
