WUNCPolitics Podcast: Redistricting, A Judicial Nominee And Amazon HQ2

WUNCPolitics Podcast
WUNC
/

Thanks to winter weather, it was a slow work week for many in North Carolina. However, the political world trudged along with more redistricting and judicial developments.

On this week's episode of the WUNCPolitics podcast, Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, and Rob Schofield, of NC Policy Watch, join WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii to discuss a partisan redistricting challenge, a nominee to fill the longest federal bench vacancy in the country, and Raleigh-Durham being named a finalist for Amazon HQ2.

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.
