About a year ago, we met a young man named Mitchell Whitley, who was on a mission to meet the mayor of every single North Carolina community. His story inspired us and many of you.

So, a year later, we invited him back to get an update, and he delivered with some incredible stories about meeting some of North Carolina’s most unique characters. That includes a mayor who owns a bigfoot museum and another mayor who helped end the Cold War.

About the Podcast

With the speed of the local news cycle, it's easy to forget that the politicians who represent us and the influencers in our communities are more than just a sound bite. North Carolina’s veteran reporter and anchor, Tim Boyum, loosens his signature bow tie to give listeners a glimpse behind the curtain, showing us who these power players really are and why they do what they do. Through Tim’s candid conversations on “Tying It Together,” his guests reveal their most fascinating life stories, passions, and help all of us get a better grasp on the issues affecting our communities.
