A Miner Detail Radio host Ryan Miner interviewed Maryland’s former attorney general Doug Gansler live on Sunday, October 15, 2017.

Gansler also spoke about his relationship with Martin O’Malley and highlighted some of his accomplishments in the eight years he spent as Maryland’s attorney general, including marriage equality and increased protections for the┬áChesapeake Bay.
