The news cycle moves fast — often it’s easy to miss stories, and hard to fully digest them. The Port City Daily newsroom podcast gives you a chance to catch up, and go deeper. Whether it’s putting the news in a broader context, exploring the details of a complicated issue, or taking a behind-the-scenes look at how the newsroom broke a story, the newsroom podcast helps take the news to the next level.
This week, we answered reader questions and took a more in-depth look at the story of Irma Carranza-Cruz, an employee at the Famous Toastery who was arrested after the owner claimed she stole a salad. Irma Carranza-Cruz was taken into custody and ended up in an Atlanta ICE detention facility, separated from her 12-year-old daughter, who is a legal citizen.
We also took at the latest development in the ongoing H2GO saga and put it in historical context. How did a little-known project stay under the radar for six years, only to become a precedent-setting lawsuit involving multiple governmental bodies, millions of dollars, and the state’s Supreme Court? We break it down.
