In “Run It Up,” Flagpole‘s new podcast, we take a deeper look at some of the stories from the current issue. In this week’s episode, Gabe Vodicka talks with Blake Aued about what the future holds for the so-called Murmur trestle, the segment of abandoned railway made famous by its appearance on the back cover of R.E.M.’s debut album. Also, how Georgia’s controversial “heartbeat bill” could affect abortion rights on a national scale—or backfire on the lawmakers who supported it. Plus, a preview of this year’s Classic City Brew Fest.
