In the continuing coverage of the Virginia ABC spirits tax raise, Scott was invited as a guest on the Kojo Nnamdi show on WAMU 88.5. From the show description:

If you live in Virginia, the state’s budget woes will hit you in the liquor cabinet next week. That’s when the price of wine and spirits goes up to help close a projected $2.4 billion revenue shortfall. The price hike is one more reminder that in jurisdictions like the Commonwealth and Maryland’s Montgomery County, where government agencies operate all the liquor stores, consumers often pay higher taxes and levies for their alcohol. We explore the economic forces—seen and unseen—that impact the selection and price of liquor around our region.

The other guest for the show was Garrett Peck, author of "The Prohibition Hangover: A Social History of Alcohol After Prohibition" and "Capital Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in Washington, D.C.".

It was a great show! You can see the original show site, here, or listen to the podcast, here.
