SANDUSKY — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown has become a podcaster — and his first episode features workers at the Whirlpool plant in Clyde.

The new podcast, "Canarycast," is available at iTunes and Soundcloud. (Note that it's one word when searching for it on your phone or computer).

On the first episode, about 21 minutes long, Brown says his new podcast is designed to highlight the struggles of American workers to get ahead.
