Excellent insight on local reproting, and a great companion show that compliments the SI Advance

Excellent insight on the local reporting process, particularly on Staten Island and tristate area. Very engaging thanks to the hosts objective and formal approach, which he interjects with appropriate touches of humanity and an on the ground, native SI perspective that makes these stories resonate and come off the page. A great companion to the Staten Island Advance print by humanizing the local news reporting process and creating a sense of transparenc, reinforcing the confidence in the local news whilst also enhancing the papers reading experience. This podcast puts a voice to the names of the sources where our news come, turning them from anonymous authors to relatable neighbors. It is great to hear from the reporters that make the local news happen. It is also worth noting that the production is exceptional as well-the episodes sound well edited and have high fidelity. A must listen if a resident on SI, and especially a reader of the Staten Island Advance. Well done fo all those involved, and I look forward to more!
