In this episode of UConn Journalism’s ‘Behind the Stories’ podcast, the team analyzes the story that kept on giving during the Fall 2017 semester: the Connecticut budget battle.
UConn senior Caio Goncalves spoke toCT Mirror budget reporter Keith Phaneuf, who broke down the many “hard choices” legislators had to make when it came down to eventually passing the state budget many months late.
UConn junior Amanda Cabral interviewed Eugene Driscoll of the Valley Independent Sentinel, who explained how his small non-profit hyperlocal publication has kept a finger on the pulse of local politics through the years.
The podcast is hosted by senior UConn journalism major Eliza Kanner.
