Open Source RVA: Jan. 18, 2012 Podcast

A quick podcasting turnaround for yesterday's action-packed edition of Open Source RVA.

The Jan. 18 installment of Your Show of Shows follows the developing story of how conservative "Tea Party" politics is affecting public education in Hanover County. Along with Linda Terry from the Richmond Association of Realtors, Hanover teacher Chris Pace joins us to discuss impending changes and how they might affect Hanover's reputation for high educational standards.

Also sitting with us for a frank discussion: Richmond activist Scott Burger, who has led the fight against Richmond's high water fees, VCU's encroachment of Oregon Hill and the lack of transparency in city government. Meet the man behind the petitions and find out how he's been so effective in a city that can count citizen apathy among its problems.
