The Political Stimulus. blog and podcast will replace The Hanging Shad blog which was started in 2008.

“I have absolutely loved writing the Connecticut-centric Hanging Shad for the last nine years,” Scully said, “But with the unprecedented political atmosphere in our country, it’s time for something new. I will continue to write about Connecticut, especially with an exciting election year underway. But I need a wider platform to try to provide a unique perspective on national and regional news and happenings. I’m going to do this through The Political Stimulus. blog and podcast.” Scully Communications is now based in Boston.

The Political Stimulus. podcast is a new venture that will be hosted and produced by Scully. Scheduling is underway. First guests will include Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, HBO’s Real Sports correspondent Jon Frankel and Connecticut legendary radio host Ray Dunaway.

Added Scully, “I will continue to call ‘em and I see ‘em without regard to party or ideology.” The Hanging Shad Had evolved from an occasional comment on Connecticut politics into a favorite blog of legislators, media members, politicos and engaged citizens.

Patrick Scully is a veteran journalist, political and communications consultant, media strategist and radio host. He is the former communications director for the Senate Democrats in the Connecticut General Assembly.
