Yes, that's officially what it's called.

Colorado's legislature zipped through two and a half days of whirlwind lawmaking this week, managing to spend $342 million dollars in less time than it takes to binge watch House of Cards. But swift lawmaking doesn't mean there weren't plenty of agreements, over policy and public health. Purplish hosts Andrew Kenney and Bente Birkeland are here with a bonus bonus episode to fill you in.

This episode of Purplish was produced by Jon Pinnow and Peter Creamer. The show is edited by Megan Verlee. Our executive producer is Rachel Estabrook. CPR’s head of audio innovations is Brad Turner, who also composed our theme music.
