The year is barely a few weeks old, and yet we already have so much to talk about. We’re going to start with what City Councilor Michael Payne has called a “leadership crisis” in city government. After an avalanche of resignations, the city was able to announce a hire. Chip Boyles will take over as city manager on February 15. We’ll talk about the decision with Charlotte Rene Woods of Charlottesville Tomorrow. And stay tuned for conversation with Sri Kodakalla and Ramona Martinez. They’re local artists behind the Feminist Union of Cville Creatives and they’ve recently put out a new zine called Mala Leche.
