This week, staff writer Leigh Tauss and editor Jeffrey Billman dive into Wake County’s controversial vote to sell the former Crooked Creek Golf Course, which the county only purchased this summer for a park. Food editor Layla Khoury-Hanold tells us into Neomande, a Lebanese restaurant that has made a long-overdue foray in downtown Durham, and music editor Allison Hussey breaks down this week’s features on Chatham Rabbits and Makaya McCraven.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We’d love to know what you want to hear in future episodes.
