New political show on WHYY

If you're reading PhillyClout, chances are you're at least a little bit of a political junkie. And if so, we've got good news for you.

Newsworks/WHYY today released the pilot episode of a new political show they're trying out called "Beyond the Ballot," hosted by former Daily News writer and local politics guru Dave Davies. The show features news reports and conversations with experts on political issues in the headlines -- as well as some entertaining flashbacks to past politics stories.

You can listen for yourself here. The segments cover a lot of ground -- from a look inside factcheck.org to a report on Pennsylvania as a swing state -- and we thought the show was an entertaining listen. It would be great to keep it going as we move towards the 2014 governor's race and the 2015 mayoral election.
