We’re huge fans of hometown immigration attorney Karen Lynum’s essential listening podcast Immigration Nation (add it to your regular rotation) and we also love seeing a podcast recorded live and direct. And, rule of three’s, the extra special guest for Thursday’s podcast party at Black Hart in St. Easy is David Hutch, the Hennepin County Sheriff candidate who’s running on a “Stand with Immigrants, Not with ICE” platform. If you can’t make the recording, here’s where you can learn about the candidate and donate to Hutch’s campaignThursday, October 18th, 7-9 PM. Free. —Hank Stacks
