There has been a lot of recent controversy around the new Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, which has replaced the Tappan Zee Bridge connecting suburbs north of New York City, related to finances and naming. It is one of Governor Andrew Cuomo's signature infrastructure projects and, according to experts, shows a number of positives about government. But, there are financial questions about paying off the bridge debt and what the toll will be (and when). For this episode of the podcast, we dig into the details of the construction of the bridge, the financing of the bridge, and more.

Listen to the conversation and let us know what you think: Ben Max of GG (@TweetBenMax), Maria Doulis of CBC (@MariaDoulis). Listen below or download wherever you get your podcasts!
