President Obama speaking in Mooresville, NC in 2013.

On this episode of the WUNCPolitics Podcast, we head back eight years ago – almost to the day – when then-Senator Barack Obama held a political rally in Greensboro.

It was the night after the first presidential debate against John McCain. After his address to tens of thousands of supporters, the man who would be elected president about five weeks later sat down with WUNC in a tiny, unmarked room in the old Greensboro Station for a short one-on-one interview.

Managing Editor Dave DeWitt replays that interview, intercut with analysis of what the President did (and did not do) on the issues of immigration reform, the changing electoral politics of North Carolina and the environment.WUNCPolitics Podcast, episode 22
