RVA Dirt’s Municipal Mania, co-hosted by Francesca Leigh-Davis, Melissa Vaughn (producer), Becca Duval and Emily Kavanaugh: 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 11:00 AM

RVA Dirt’s Municipal Mania is a bi-monthly one hour government and politics program that educates locals about Richmond’s municipal government and pressing issues facing our community through a combination of interviews, commentary, and round table discussions.

The success of democracy relies on an educated and engaged populous. This show breaks 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 Board, 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!
