Inside Olympia

Inside Olympia, with host Austin Jenkins, is TVW's long-running weekly interview show featuring in-depth discussions with state leaders.

Each year TVW produces 40 original episodes of Inside Olympia. During July/August and the last two weeks of December the program goes on hiatus, returning in September and January with new episodes. During the summer and Christmas hiatus periods, some of the best episodes from recent months are repeated during the program's regular air times.

 Inside Olympia is sponsored with generous support from Pemco, Seattle Children's Hospital, Puget Sound Energy, Boeing Employees Credit Union and Washington State University.
