On this week’s edition of the On Iowa Politics Podcast, reporters discuss Iowa Senate Republicans’ effort to ban some LGBTQ books in schools, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley’s GOP primary issues, Iowa Auditor Rob Sand running for reelection instead of governor and Davenport Sen. Roby Smith running for state treasurer.

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 James Lynch and features Amie Rivers of the Waterloo Cedar-Falls Courier, Tom Barton of the Quad-City Times, Lee newspapers Statehouse Bureau chief Erin Murphy, and Gazette opinion editor Todd Dorman.

The show was produced by Katie Brumbeloe, and the music heard on the podcast is courtesy of Iowa bands Copperhead and Milk & Eggs.
