Who am I?

I'm a journalist in North Carolina passionate about storytelling on multiple platforms. I host a nightly TV show, a weekly podcast, and a monthly magazine TV show in North Carolina. My job as a journalist focuses on politics but I've become passionate about telling these stories in our communities rather than the halls of our institutions.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

My podcast is about the stories behind the stories and people of politics.

What is my podcast playlist about?

My playlist reflects my personal taste in comedy, sports, issues and true crime when it comes to podcast listening.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. Tying It Together with Tim Boyum

Why this podcast?

Because it's mine! Search in this podcast feed for The Endorser! It's a 3 part series on the story behind Donald Trump's surprise endorsement in the 2022 U.S. Senate race in North Carolina. It was one of the wildest nights in North Carolina history.

With the speed of the local news cycle, it's easy to forget that the politicians who represent us and the influencers in our communities are more than just a soundbite. North Carolina’s veteran reporter and anchor, Tim Boyum, loosens his signature bow tie to give listeners a glimpse behind the curtain, showing us who these power players really are and why they do what they do. Through Tim’s candid conversations on “Tying It Together,” his guests reveal their most fascinating life stories, passions, and help all of us get a better grasp on the issues affecting our communities.

4. Fly on the Wall with Dana Carvey and David Spade

Why this podcast?

SNL in the 90's was a big part of my teen years so to hear all these stories really takes me back to a great time!

Every Wednesday, longtime pals David Spade and Dana Carvey take you behind the curtain of showbiz as they hang out and chat with friends (old and new) from all corners of the entertainment world. Be a “Fly on the Wall” as the guys and their guests share stories, tell jokes, do characters and talk SNL lore – there’s a little something for everyone. On Fridays, join Dana and David for Superfly, this time with or WITHOUT guests, to riff on current events, pop culture, trending clips, and audience submissions. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the comedy, absurdity, and impressions from your favorite duo. Full video episodes of Superfly are available on YouTube. Fly on the Wall and Superfly with Dana Carvey and David Spade are presented by Audacy.

5. Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

Why this podcast?

The silliness of their conversations is exactly what I need to break away from the stress of the day.

Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

4.8

After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him. Over the years and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never made a real and lasting friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he started a podcast to do just that. Deeper, unboundedly playful, and free from FCC regulations, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is a weekly opportunity for Conan to hang out with the people he enjoys most and perhaps find some real friendship along the way.
