Chances are you've heard of Tim Cahill, the independent candidate running for governor. You probably also know he's currently the state treasurer. But what does the state treasurer actually do? That may be a question mark.

Guests:

  • Steve Grossman, Democratic candidate for treasurer, former Democratic National Committee chair
