Episode 9 of our Nooze Hounds podcast is a special on-location recording from earlier this week at Coco & the Director in Uptown. Justin and Ryan switched out their usual cocktails for local beer and brought N.C. Senators Jeff Jackson and Mujtaba Mohammed to the table. Jeff and Mujtaba, who represent District 37 and 38, respectively, talked about the coming year in politics, including the new district maps that found them trading neighborhoods in the lead-up to this year’s election. We also discuss the opening of bike lanes on The Plaza, the downfall of the Epicentre and the assassination of Qassem Soleimani.
