RVA Dirt’s Municipal Mania, co-hosted by Francesca Leigh-Davis, Jessee Perry and Melissa Vaughn (producer): Wednesdays at 11:00 AM

RVA Dirt’s Municipal Mania is a weekly, full hour government and politics show that educates people about their municipal government and local issues through a combination of interviews, commentaries, and roundtable discussions.

The success of democracy relies on an educated and engaged populous, so this show will break down complicated content in a fun and humorous way to get more people involved in the issues that impact their daily lives. Our core focus is on the Mayor’s office, Richmond City Council, Richmond School Boards, candidate forums, issue forums, and district meetings or events, and community-oriented discussions. No topic is too tough or off limits!

    today’s show was my first, I was impressed! I’m not very political-minded, but as I get older I’m paying more attention to the issues that affect my everyday life, especially local stuff. I couldn’t have answered the questions you asked your volunteers either, but now I could! I find lot’s of shared knowledge at WRIR and it’s pretty much the only station I listen to. couldn’t live without you guys, I’m a listener, my band has played live there 4 times, and most importantly, a supporter/donator! keep up the fine work!
