Michelle Mosby bucked the odds and turned some heads when she ousted incumbent Doug Conner in the last council election. In her first major interview, Mosby talks with OSRVA about her surprising victory, her legislative priorities and how she -- a political neophyte -- is learning the ropes at City Hall.
Your Show of Shows also speaks with filmmaker Christine Stoddard about her new short film, The Persistence of Poe. Joining the conversation is Jeff Roll of the James River Film Society, who will talk about his quarterly James River Filmmakers Forum.
