Every Wednesday morning on the Political Breakfast podcast, veteran Atlanta journalist and WABE Morning Edition host Lisa Rayam, Democratic strategist Tharon Johnson, and Republican strategist Brian Robinson deliver sterling analysis of Georgia politics with an informed, respectful, and lively discussion. During the Georgia legislative session, Political Breakfast presents the pop-up podcast Gold Dome Scramble each Monday as Lisa talks with WABE political reporters to break things down for our listeners—the power players of the moment, the issues being considered, and the bills moving through various committees at the capitol that may or may not make it to the governor’s desk.
