Jonathan McNicol Went To A Presidential Debate (So The Rest Of Us Wouldn't Have To)

See, we were supposed to send a whole team of people to the first presidential debate on Long Island. We were supposed to do an episode of The Colin McEnroe Show from Hofstra.

But then a bunch of parts of that plan fell through -- mostly because one semi-important figure in the whole thing just, well, totally forgot to get himself credentialed. So, in the great tradition of people like Biff Henderson, we sent producer Jonathan McNicol to the debate. Alone.

He brought back the photos above and the audio report below.

Jonathan is a producer for ‘The Colin McEnroe Show.’ His work has been heard nationally on NPR and locally on Connecticut Public’s talk shows and news magazines. He’s as likely to host a podcast on minor league baseball as he is to cover a presidential debate almost by accident.
