The Impact

Find out how the issues of the day – the state budget, health care, education, the environment, transportation, and more – impact citizens and communities throughout Washington. Hosted by Anita Kissée (learn more about Anita here), The Impact features interviews and profiles with the policy experts who make the decisions in Olympia and the people who are impacted back home.

During July/August and the last two weeks of December The Impact goes on hiatus, returning in September and January with new episodes.

TVW looks at the growing popularity of drones, and the serious privacy questions they raise in a new one-hour special report, Flight Plan: Charting a Course for Drones in Washington. Watch the documentary here.
