Fantastic Local Podcast!
I love this podcast because it talks about local politics in a way that isn’t confusing. It breaks down the elections being voted on and provides information we all need to know that is actually hard to find. Thanks Julia for taking the time to sit down and explain these things to the general public-it really is a big help. Also, the quote from that last episode is Sara Shepard from “Pretty Little Liars.” 😊😋 Keep up the excellent work!
