Compared to the run-up to the city's first national political convention - the 2012 Democratic National Convention - the upcoming RNC seems to be flying under the radar.

WFAE begins its coverage of the convention with the launch of the "Inside Politics" podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Worf, host of WFAE's Morning Edition, and Steve Harrison, WFAE's political reporter.

The first episode, which is now available for download, looks at how Charlotte came to be a two-time convention city.
