Get caught selling home-made muffins in Wisconsin, and you could end up in jail for six months.

It's a law that seems absurd on it's face, but that's only the beginning of the story.  Efforts to change Wisconsin's so-called "cottage food law" is opposed by powerful lobbyists from the baking industry (there's a phrase you probably never expected to read) and legislators who have a stake in the outcome.

Matt Kittle joins Eric Boehm to talk about the silly rules in Wisconsin and the on-going effort to get them changed. 

Then, Ken Ward explains why property taxes are going up, up, up in Texas.  The answer: big government that requires big bucks to keep running.

And our Big Dog interview of the week is Bruce Parker, of Vermont Watchdog, who sits down with Boehm to talk about Donald Trump's national appeal. After attending one of The Donald's big rallies -- last week in Burlington -- Parker offers his assessment of Trump's campaign and the billionarie-turned-presidential-hopeful's legions of fans.

All that, plus our Nanny State of the Week, on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
