Roughly Speaking: Government Edition, episode 11:

In the 11th episode of "Roughly Speaking: Government Edition," Baltimore Sun State House reporters Luke Broadwater and Pamela Wood talk about the intense scrutiny facing the University of Maryland Medical System over its contracting practices, including $500,000 in payments to Mayor Catherine Pugh for self-published "Healthy Holly" books. They also discuss the flurry of legislation moving in the General Assembly on "crossover day" — the deadline for most bills to pass from one chamber to the other.

The show's guest is District 46 Sen. Bill Ferguson, a Baltimore Democrat who serves on the Kirwan commission to improve public schools. He says he hasn't ruled out a run for mayor.
