Now Introducing: Patch Talk

In our constant effort to serve our communities with local news and information, Chicago Heights Editor Chris Paicely and Homewood-Flossmoor Editor Ryan Fitzpatrick are teaming up to bring you weekly podcast roundups.

You clearly know about Patch, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this.

And you probably know about Patch on Facebook. If you follow us there, you've also probably noticed that you get a slightly different take on the news compared to the website. It's a little less formal and lighter in tone by comparison.

We wanted to take it a step further, however. Starting today, Chicago Heights Editor Chris Paicely and myself, Homewood-Flossmoor Editor Ryan Fitzpatrick, are teaming up to bring you weekly radio show style updates available to listen to directly on Patch and, soon (we're hoping), downloadable on iTunes as a podcast.

What can you expect? Right now, we're thinking a little bit of everything. Patch is not strictly a news source, but rather a comprehensive community website. That means things like garage sales, arguments over high school sporting outcomes and our favorite places to eat in town are all fair game. You've been warned—it's not all news and it's not all serious. We want to create something that's both useful and enjoyable, insightful and diverse, but we can't do it without your feedback.

So please, consider giving our first rendition a shot. If you like it, we're thrilled. If not, let us know what we can do better. We're dying to hear what you think.
