Welcome back to the QNS Podcast, a weekly look at the week’s biggest Queens news. Hosted by Jacob Kaye and reporter Angélica Acevedo, each show will take a look at the week’s most important stories from across the borough and across topics.

It’s all about Tuesday’s election this week. We break down some of the questions on the ballot for the City Charter Revisions. We also touch on some of the issues that the candidates for the Queens District Attorney’s office — Melinda Katz and Joe Murray — have pledged to address if elected.

Finally, we introduce our first guest on the QNS podcast: Councilman Costa Constantinides. We talk about his candidacy for Queens Borough President, and why he’s centered his campaign around the climate crisis, diversity, and education issues.

See a snippet of our conversation with Constantinides in the video below.


The QNS Podcast will be back next week, on Nov. 11.
