Your weekly ATL politics briefing, Aug. 6

IT’S A NEW MONTH and we are back with King, Sylvia, and Aja to discuss Aja’s new recovery/music/art podcast “Bad Vacation” coming out in a couple weeks, a recap on last night’s People’s Town Hall to #StopCopCity hosted by Atlanta DSA & DARC, the F-word section, and Sylvia’s new candidate alert. Plus, King takes a few minutes to discuss franchise players and sports along with the latest updates in big media.
