GeorgiaPol Radio came a day early this week, but you still get the GeorgiaPol Radio podcast on Saturday! How’s that for a set schedule? This week, Aaron Sheinin of the AJC joins Charlie Harper and Jon Richards to talk about presidential politics and the #SECPrimary.
Here’s what happened this week:
- Segment 1: Charlie and Jon talk about RFRA and the work to get the business community out of the middle and pass a bill that can still please all sides. Then, Charlie asks Jon to talk about transportation in north Fulton.
- Segment 2: Economic drivers! Georgia Film tax credits are discussed and how it’s helping Georgia become a major economic driver and one of the largest filming bases in the United States. Plus, the financial technology sector in Georgia is growing.
- Segment 3: The AJC’s Aaron Sheinin joins Charlie and Jon to talk about the goings-on at the Capitol and presidential politics. A status inquiry about the Brunch Bill, near and dear to Sully’s and a lot of GeorgiaPol folks’ hearts. After all things brunch, we move on to the #SECPrimary and getting Aaron’s take on what he’s seeing on the presidential race circuit.
- Segment 4: Howard calls in to talk about Trump and lays out his thought-out reasons on why he voted for Trump. Charlie and Jon talk about the potential for Trump becoming the Republican nominee for President and how talk radio, the blogosphere, and conservative-leaning sites who are making a beautiful dollar by hammering the ever-nebulous #Establishment.
