Engaging and informative!
Great listen for Georgia political junkies. Fantastic way to get caught up on our local issues and candidates.
I truly cannot believe the reference to sex trafficking and adoption reform “paling in comparison” to ANYTHING. Those issues are very important - SO important. That is a disgusting thing to say.
Smart take on GA Politics
Highly recommend. Just listened to interview with John Noel running for Public Service Commission, verry entertaining and informative. This is just what I needed with the 2018 elections coming up. Keep up the good work.
