Current Bachelor of Arts in Public Service students Samuel and Veronica Brady launched the official City of Tyler podcast Roses and Weeds in mid-July 2017. The podcast name comes from the fact that Tyler considers itself the rose capital of the world.
The “roses” in the podcast highlight things happening in the community or ways to get involved, while the “weeds” represent exploring local municipal government issues and getting as “deep in the weeds” as listeners may want.
The husband and wife team have already had special guests, including the city’s historic preservation officer, communications director, one of the managing directors, the director of the Downtown Tyler Film Festival, and more.
Episodes of Roses and Weeds can be found on SoundCloud.
