Podcast in Review: 2016-2017

It’s a joyous week here at The Chronicles: our podcast is a year old! It seems like just yesterday that we were interviewing people about their city council meetings using a wax cylinder attached to my great-grandma’s phonograph.

Of those guests,

67% were council members 👪

16% were mayors 👨‍⚖️

14% were municipal staff 💼


24% were from the Southeast ⛪️

20% were International 🚅

18% were from the Southwest 🌵

14% were from the Midwest 🌽

12% were from the Northeast 🗽
12% were from the Northwest 🌧️

And demographically, the guests were

51% male ♂️

 49% female ♀️
