Caleb Bouchard ,

Engaging and informative!

Great listen for Georgia political junkies. Fantastic way to get caught up on our local issues and candidates.

Shocking statement

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.

BBinGA ,

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.
