Our guest this week is Janelle Cammenga, a policy analyst with the Center on State Tax Policy at Tax Foundation.  We discuss some recent publications she has worked on and learn about different aspects of state tax policy.  We cover corporate income taxes, sales taxes, and sin taxes: how they work (or don't work).  We also discuss the best and worst states to research, and the way research is done at a policy organization.  Next, we learn about how Janelle got her job with a very unusual major/minor combination from college.  If you want some tips on fun stuff to do in D.C., she's got you covered there too.  This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in working in D.C.
