Among the hardest places to actually be HEARD these days – ironically – are political statehouses. North Carolina’s is no different.

In this podcast, we bring on one of the best political reporters the Tar Heel State, WUNC radio’s Jeff Tiberii, as co-pilot and turn to an array of political practitioners and powerhouses to figure out the best way to influence policy-makers and have an impact on Jones St. (home to the NC Legislature).

We interview Jane Pinsky (Exec. Dir. at the NC Coalition on Lobbying and Government Reform) about how to sell issues to lawmakers AND Rep. Graig Meyer (a Democrat from Orange and Caswell counties). Meyer is one of the best communicators in the legislature – on social and in person. Both he and Pinsky share critical tips on breaking through the noise at the General Assembly.

We also talk with opposition researcher Matt Duffy, field operations go-to Kathryn Vandegrift and long-time comms veteran Mitch Kokai. Their insights are invaluable when it comes to political campaigning and communicating.
