Cliffs Notes for civic engagement
Tarqle and Larkey do a great job summarizing what’s going on and really opening the window into how government works. They also do a good job finding lots of common ground.
Very insightful look at the inner workings of Charlotte, and lighthearted enough to keep almost anyone regardless of political stance or background interested. Well done!
When I first started listening, I knew nothing about Charlotte politics. I’ve learned a ton and even gotten involved in a rezoning on my street. I listen every week and wish more Charlotteans would too!
