Quality Updates for the Politically Uninformed

This podcast is an educational weekly update on Charlotte’s city politics. For a career mom with limited time, this podcast is humorous and up-to-date with current events and the political climate in the city. Larken and Tariq’s banter is hilarious and keeps me listening through the government jargon. Props for leading with Rage Against the Machine. I know to turn the sound down, but love the pumped up lead-in! Keep bringing both sides of the story and bipartisanship to CLT listeners!

Kill the music

The podcast is a 10 but for the music and overall decibel level of the music compared to the true content. One simple change can save a listener.

Novel idea and great way to find out what’s going on in the QC

Enjoy listening to this weekly podcast. Thought episode 26 was the best yet.

One suggestion: lower the volume on the intro and exit Rage Against the Machine song. Good song but I have to turn the volume down each time and then turn it back up when the pod starts.
