A Worthwhile Listen

Started listening to this years ago when I began in the business world. They offer a wide range of topics and although they don’t all align with what I’m currently doing, it’s been valuable to hear their well reasoned and insightful views.

Excellent Podcast for Those in Economic and Community Development

I recently became aware of this podcast at an IEDC conference and I’m so happy I did. The conversations and topics are very relevant to the work we do and the length of episodes is perfect. I will definitely be sharing it with my colleagues.
