Podcast #50 — Minneapolis Post-Election Roundup with Eric Roper and StreetsMN Writers

temp1The podcast this week is a special one, a group conversation with Streets.mn writers about last week’s Minneapolis Citywide election. We gathered a veritable who’s who of street.mn punditry, including a campaign manager, a city council candidate, and a whole bunch of other people with ideas.

We even had a special guest in on the conversation, the Star Tribune’s Eric Roper who covers city hall for our state’s finest news source. Along with Eric, Matt Steele, Jeremy Mendelson, Nate Hood, Max Musicant, Alex Bauman, Sam Newberg, George Robbins and  I sat down at Zeke’s Unchained Animal Café on East Lake Street yesterday evening to talk about what the election really meant, which city council race was the most interesting, and to make predictions for the future of Minneapolis with this new cast of characters down at City Hall.
