Catch up on Arizona political news with our podcast, The Gaggle at azcentral
Keep up with Arizona politics and get the story behind the headlines with our azcentral.com podcast "The Gaggle."
Each week, Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald J. Hansen, national political reporters for The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com, interview newsroom reporters and political experts or operatives about the state's biggest political news.
The goal? To dive deep into complex issues, to demystify the players and their motives and to provide you with clearer and more accurate information, from Congress to Maricopa County. Learn about Arizona politics and politicians by the people who know it best: Arizona Republic reporters.
From the 2022 election battles to the ripple effects of the 2020 election review, they've got you covered.
Arizona Republic and azcentral.com journalists have been covering Arizona politics since 1890. This is reporting and analysis from one of the state's most trusted sources.
Our namesake is a play off of a press gaggle — the informal news briefings where reporters gather around elected officials or their staff while on the hunt for news.
