This week, Governor McCrory choked up when he announced the resignation of Budget Director Art Pope. Greg, Lisa and Ben discuss Pope's influence in the McCrory administration.

Lisa explains how lawmakers significantly changed how the state decides to fund school system enrollment growth.

Plus, we say goodbye to our summer intern, Nick de la Canal. Nick also talks about his story about unwelcome visitors to the Burke County property where the Hunger Games was filmed.
