EPISODE 132: Zirkin reflects on the power of social media and modern politics

    Bobby Zirkin has been on the political scene since 2006 and recently decided to step down from public office.

    Our original intent was to have a pre-Super Bowl conversation with the biggest Baltimore Ravens fan we know in the local political world but instead we turned our attention to his abrupt halt from public life and a concentration on new goals.

    We had three lengthy chats with the former Delegate and State Senator. This chat focused on life in politics – before and after the advent of social media.

    We have plenty of fresh and relevant conversation coming your way in 2020 as we enter our second year of Baltimore Positive this spring.
