WUNCPolitics Podcast: A Conversation With Colin Campbell

WUNCPolitics Podcast

A test of divided government played out this week at the General Assembly, where Republicans failed to override a veto from Democratic Governor Roy Cooper. It was the first time in North Carolina political history that a veto-override was approved by one chamber, and then voted down by the other chamber. Colin Campbell of the NC Insider joins WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii to talk about the failed veto override, as well as the political effects of the Born Alive Act, and also delves into budget negotiations and craft distillery regulations.

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.
