Episode 7 of the Indianapolis Monthly podcast will get you ready for election day in Indiana. Our special guest is Brandon Smith of Indiana Public Broadcasting and Jim Shella’s replacement on Indiana Week in Review, starting in early December.

Smith has covered the Indiana statehouse for more than five years with Indiana Public Broadcasting and has just recently been tapped as Shella’s heir to the popular Indiana Week in Review program. Originally from Chicago, Smith graduated from the prestigious journalism program at Missouri and has committed himself to public media ever since.

Before heading out to vote on November 8, let Smith help guide you through what’s at stake and what you might see on your ballot. We talk public media, local journalism, and the crazy few months of national politics focused on Indianapolis. For some of Smith’s work with Indiana Public Broadcasting, visit
