Welcome to Idiotville - Erie, PA’s Liberal Conscience: We want you to be better, Erie. But you just keep screwing it up. Every time someone opens their mouth with a good idea, someone has to have a reason why not. That reason usually isn’t very well thought out, it usually involves thinly (or not so thinly) veiled racism. This town can move forward, but until we confront the demons that lurk here, we aren’t going anywhere. If you don’t like what we’ve got to say, come at us with a good take. Think it all the way out. Our podcast is here to take political discourse in this city in a completely different direction.The Idiotville Crew is Brent N Liberty, Jake News, Dill Spears, Marty Balawkay and very occasionally, Ted Brogan & Mrs Spears.

Erie Love

This podcast is fun, local, and they love Erie as much as I do!
I would love for them to do more interviews. The most recent interview with the CEO of the Erie Food Co Op was great.

Love it

This is my favorite Erie based podcast (other than my own :D )

Fun Erie-Based Pod

It’s fun to have a podcast that hits on specific local topics and nuance. The entire Idiotville crew has an excellent rapport, which makes each episode feel like you’re jumping into a discussion with a fun circle of friends.

On top of that, they also have interviews with local and regional people of interest, like representative Ryan Bizzarro and congressional candidate Kristy Gnibus. This pod is definitely worth a download and listen!
