Here & Now On The Road

Our team is in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the Democratic National Conventional, covering the speeches, and getting out into the city — We’ve been to Carolinafest (yay funnel cakes!), we met up with a number of young veterans who are becoming entrepreneurs and we ran into The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart.

We packed up our radio equipment, along with extra junk food, and headed down to Tampa, Florida for the Republican National Convention.

We’re analyzing the big speeches, stopping by convention events and we’re also out and about in Tampa, seeing what makes this place tick.We visited the Tampa neighborhood known as “Suitcase City” to see how the foreclosure crisis is reverberating, we also spoke with the co-founder of Tampa’s Tea Party. See all our stories below.
