August 9, 2007. Lyons, GA -- Wilson Smith, Attorney at Law from Lyons, Georgia, decided "someone needed to keep an eye on politicians in general." So he commenced the dirty work by interviewing noteworthy folk in Georgia politics for the Lyons radio station, WLYU.
Now, Smith's political media inclinations have grown into a treasure trove of notables in Georgia news, media and politics -- with Smith's freewheeling interviews available as podcasts for listening at your desktop, or for downloading to your mobile device, on the newly-refurbished website and blog, WhatIsGoinOn.

Whether he's talking to Lt. Governor Casey Cagle about the upcoming Legislative session or a national political operative like Terry McAuliffe, Smith's genuine southern style and wit shines through with his skilled conversational tone, something woefully lacking in most contemporary political media.
Smith's fascination with new social media tools such as blogging and podcasting is also a big part of WhatIsGoinOn, as in-between political interviews and his work as an attorney he quizzes notable Georgia bloggers such as Erick Erickson and James Williams on their work in emerging new media.
