Just a year into this new start up platform, we are blessed to have so many loyal readers every day. I can’t thank you enough for reading and engaging with me and the whole team at Alabama Daily News.
I get asked a lot, “when are you going to start a podcast?”
The answer is, now!
I’ve actually been interested in doing it for a while, so I’m excited to have it finally off the ground.
It’s called In the Weeds, with Alabama Daily News. That’s a common saying among politicos and wonks, most times used to say we should avoid getting too carried away with detail.
So much of what we do on a daily basis is ADN is top level: we tell you what happened, why it matters, and what’s next. But every once in a while, it’s good to go deeper into the issues. In the Weeds will be a weekly podcast where we can spend a little more time on the details and take you into the heart of an issue. We’ll also have guests! What podcast would be complete without guests? Part of my goal is pull back the curtain on Alabama politics to bring listeners in to get to know how our top public officials go about their jobs.
I sat down with Governor Kay Ivey on Friday and I’ll be traveling up to Washington DC to visit with the Congressional Delegation this next week, so those are a few of the guests you can expect in the near future.
So, tune in, and more importantly, subscribe! We are available on iTunes, Google Play, and most other places you get your podcasts. And, as always, you can subscribe to the Daily News for free at ALDailyNews.com.
Thanks for listening! And stay tuned.
