Riding With Rodney For Congress

Riding With Rodney For Congress

What is Riding With Rodney? It’s a virtual — and, at times, literal — ride-along with Democratic candidate for Congress Rodney Govens as he embarks on an all-year study of Arkansas’ First District and its 31 counties. Riding With Rodney is all the stories that make up real life for Arkansans in the First Congressional District, shared through podcast discussions with “regular people”; through interactive events like live podcast tapings doubling as town halls with the candidate; and through dash-cam video of guided tours of towns in every county, each with a local storyteller showing Rodney the heart of their town: its points of pride and local charm, and its most pressing needs.
