MADISON – This week, the Assembly Democratic Caucus launched a new weekly podcast, Some Assembly Required. The 10-15 minute podcast will provide an opportunity for discussion of timely issues and happenings in Wisconsin state politics, and will also allow the public to know their elected officials through a rotating group of legislative hosts and guests each week. The first episode premiered on Wednesday, July 24th. Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) welcomed his colleague, Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine), to discuss everything from non-partisan redistricting reform, her favorite summer music, and the reasons that inspired her to run for office.

Rep. Hintz released the following statement on the new podcast:

“Assembly Democrats are always seeking new and innovative ways to engage with the public. The aim of this podcast is a program that is interesting, fun, and easy to listen to. Our caucus is made up of an incredibly diverse and talented group of individuals, with great stories to tell. In addition to hearing from our members directly on timely issues of the week, we look forward to also providing a chance to showcase the wide-ranging interests and personalities that make up our team.”
