Metro Council kicks off 2022 by launching a new podcast: District Download

January 04, 2022

Community encouraged to share feedback, submit topic ideas

Louisville – Metro Council launched a new podcast on Tuesday, January 4. The first episode of District Download can be found on several popular podcast platforms.

District Download is designed for all of Louisville’s 26 Metro Council districts. It’s a chance to connect with your council member and learn about what’s going down in your district.

“I’m very excited to launch this new podcast. This gives all the Metro Council members – Democrats and Republicans – the platform to openly discuss things in a way we don’t always get to during Council meetings. Metro Council is always trying to find more ways to connect with more constituents, so District Download will be another tool we can use to promote transparency and build up our community,” said Metro Council President David James (D-6).

The podcast promotes open, respectful discussion. Each episode will be slightly different, because council members have the chance to make it fit their unique styles. But every episode aims to educate, uplift, and encourage community engagement.

A new episode will be released every other Tuesday, starting January 4.
