My favorite local podcast

Another reviewer called this a great news source without the usual slant. I couldn’t agree more. This is a great way to get an inside look at San Diego politics and news from sources you can trust. Bonus: Scott, Sara and Andy have a great repertoire that makes listening a pleasure!

A must listen for San Diegans

If you’re into politics and live/work in San Diego County, you need to listen to this podcast. It shines a spotlight on our local government, and introduces listeners to key political players. This is the show I’ve been waiting for, and I’m happy to have found it.

Plenty of teaching ,

Keeps me thinking and connected

This is my go to source for local news. If you don't already read Voice of San Diego, check it out. I appreciate that Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts are comfortable dipping their toes into the weeds of local policies that impact residents. Keep up the good work!
