“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.

Get a universal link
https://podnews.net/podcast/i8b23/listen is a so-called universal link: it will automatically open Google Podcasts on Android phones, Apple Podcasts on iOS devices, or this page. Both Apple Podcasts and the Google Podcasts player are pre-installed on every phone.
A QR code to this URL is a great way to share your podcast. You’ll find a QR code at the top of this page on desktop. It’s particularly ideal for business cards, posters or conventions.
But - you are always better to fully control your own podcast and not rely on any third-party - even us. So, here’s the code to add a universal link to your own website. Copy/paste this HTML into a new file on your website, and link to that instead.
