Thoughtful Seattle Podcast

Edward has created a fascinating podcast about past and present Seattle structures and neighborhoods. He uses his deep history here and incisive energy and curiosity to explore the ways people create places and live here. I especially loved Ep. 8 Building Lofts Inspired By Orangutans. This is a wonderful podcast for newcomers, oldtimers, design fans, historians, and community builders.

Wonderful series of Podcasts regarding Seattle's recent history and potential future

I've very much enjoyed this podcast series, particularly the most recent with Roger Valdez.
Roger explains how his background as an activist/ economist, along with his personal, political and religious beliefs- have provided a basis for evaluating how the housing market could provide more affordable housing. He dispels much of the current distractions and secondary conversations that cloud this important topic. Highly recommend a listen.

See (Hear) Seattle in a different light

I appreciate the perspectives each guest offers on the historic and current political and social state of Seattle. These long-time Seattle residents bring unique insight into what Seattle once was and could be (given the right leadership.) From Top Pot Doughnut founder/designer to housing advocates, and the city’s former Mayor Norm Rice it is truly a treat to hear what they feel is the most special/unique location in Seattle.
