Max & Murphy Podcast
"Max & Murphy" was a podcast hosted by Ben Max of Gotham Gazette and Jarrett Murphy of City Limits that began in 2016 as a brief discussion on the latest in housing policy but quickly expanded to lengthier discussions of a wide variety of political and policy issues, including interviews with candidates for office, elected and appointed government officials, advocates and other experts. In 2017 the show was an important stop for candidates for top city offices and in 2018 for candidates for state offices and so on through much of the 2021 New York City elections. Also in 2018, the podcast was picked up by WBAI radio, where the show initially aired on Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. Portions or full episodes of the show were then posted to the podcast streams, and to the Gotham Gazette and City Limits websites. When Jarrett Murphy left journalism for nursing school, the show became Max Politics, as noted above.
