On Background

 5.0 via 1 rating in Apple Podcasts
A government podcast from Tom Lee - CivicPoint

“On Background,” the new podcast series from CivicPoint, offers the candid voices of Tennessee political, business, and cultural leaders telling emotional stories and lessons from their own backgrounds that inform the way they lead today. “On Background” isn’t daily headlines or eight-second soundbites. It’s long-form, living-room conversations—a new half-hour every month—full of surprising insights into the lives and stories of Tennessee’s best-known and most intriguing persons. To learn what makes Tennessee tick, download and listen. “On Background” is for you.

CivicPoint’s managing principal, Tom Lee, brings more than 35 years of political, legal, and award-winning journalism experience to the role of moderator and producer, Nashville new media professional Barry Richards is the program’s engineer and editor, and noted filmscore composer Josh Kramer supplied the original “On Background” theme.
