WUNCPolitics Podcast: A Conversation With Jeremy Loeb

WUNCPolitics Podcast

This week on the WUNCPolitics Podcast, a conversation with Jeremy Loeb, Morning Edition Host and reporter at Blue Ridge Public Radio.

Jeremy joins Jeff on this politics podcast to discuss redistricting, the powerful U.S. House members from Western North Carolina, craft beer, and what he misses most about WUNC - where he used to work.


At the 1:51 mark: the conversation centers on state legislative redistricting, ordered by a three-judge panel after it found current politic districts to unconstitutionally gerrymander black voters. This week, lawmakers established the criteria from which they will draw the next set of maps.

At the 8:35 mark: the topic shifts to two members of North Carolina's congressional delegation - Mark Meadows and Patrick McHenry.

At the 18:20 mark: Jeremy talks about how cuts to legal aid services that stem from the most recent state budget will affect the Asheville area.

And at the 23:20 mark: Jeremy reflects on life as an early-morning radio host, the best time to visit the Blue Ridge, and his favorite local beer.

Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
