This is the first edition of our new weekly podcast. We're calling it WFAE Talks. News Director Greg Collard and reporters Lisa Miller and Ben Bradford discuss topics and people in the news. Consider it a behind-the-scenes discussion and analysis of some of the issues you hear addressed on WFAE. You'll also get some insight into our general newsroom banter.
This week Greg, Lisa and Ben discuss concerns about the mandates of North Carolina's 3rd grade reading requirement, the chemicals that gas drilling companies don't have to reveal to state regulators, and a possible highlighter explosion in Charlotte (you'll have to listen to see what we're talking about).
