WUNCPolitics Podcast

North Carolina's congressional maps are partisan gerrymanders, but does that make them illegal?

This week U.S. Supreme Court Justices heard arguments about whether the political boundaries go too far, need to be reined in, and asked if it they have to be the ones to act.

Meanwhile in Raleigh at the state House, a bill to require local sheriffs to work with federal ICE agents in the deportation process sparked controversy.

Associated Press reporter Gary Robertson joins the podcast to review those topics, while also offering some thoughts on the 2019 MLB season.

Jeff Tiberii is the co-host of WUNC's "Due South." Jeff joined WUNC in 2011. During his 20 years in public radio, he was Morning Edition Host at WFDD and WUNC’s Greensboro Bureau Chief and later, the Capitol Bureau Chief. Jeff has covered state and federal politics, produced the radio documentary “Right Turn,” launched a podcast, and was named North Carolina Radio Reporter of the Year four times.
