Publisher/editor Scott Buttram is back on "The Best Story I've Heard Today" talking religion education in Georgia. How much is too much? Does it change depending on the religions you're discussing?

Alabama's economy is in dire straits with the legislature, after a general session and two special sessions, passing some sort of budget at almost the 11th hour. Bob Davis​ of The Anniston Star​ joined ‘The Best Story I've Heard Today" to explain what the legislature did and what they didn't do.

Soon after the First Lady filed for divorce from Gov. Robert Bentley, both parties asked the judge to seal the papers. Now, 10 Alabama news outlets are asking the judge to remove that seal, making them open like the vast majority of Alabama's court documents, so that journalists can do their work. 

+Bob Davis the editor of The Anniston Star joins us on "The Best Story I've Heard Today" to talk about the story.

Today's installment of the new podcast. Basic premise: highlighting a story you might have missed, and pointing out its virtues until you go find the thing.
