Open Source RVA Podcast for Dec. 7, 2012

The latest podcast of Open Source RVA leaves an indelible impression.

On the Dec. 7 edition, your show of shows takes a look at Richmond's thriving tattoo culture with Bill Martin of the Valentine Richmond History Center. He tells us about the Valentine's new "History Ink" exhibit and photo archive, which documents River City's tats and tat history. Martin also fills us in on upcoming changes at the Valentine, which will close for some months next year for renovations.

We also navigate a breaking scandal at Richmond City Hall with WTVR 6 investigative reporter Catie Beck. It's a story that involves the mismanagement of the city's Department of Social Services, as well as possible evidence of a cover up from a now-departed administrative officer.

And we always enjoy visits by Richmond police officers interested in our coverage. On this installment,  we also have an up-close-and-personal update on the controversial showdown between Richmond police and the Wingnut Anarchist Collective. Don't miss this one!
