We're back with a full length episode. And since Tom can't be picked for jury duty for another two years, we'll remain back for the foreseeable future.

This week's episode is all about the race for the District 1 seat on Charlotte's city council. And what a race it is.

This contest is a Democrats only affair, no Republican chose to run. So it will be decided by the September 12 primary. We profile the candidates – and the vote at the heart of this race.

Then, we bring back our favorite partisan hacks for our political roundtable. They break down the rest as well and answer some hard hitting questions from you, our beloved constituents.

Tom Bullock decided to trade the khaki clad masses and traffic of Washington DC for Charlotte in 2014. Before joining WFAE, Tom spent 15 years working for NPR.  Over that time he served as everything from an intern to senior producer of NPR’s Election Unit.  Tom also spent five years as the senior producer of NPR’s Foreign Desk where he produced and reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Haiti, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon among others.  Tom is looking forward to finally convincing his young daughter, Charlotte, that her new hometown was not, in fact, named after her.
