I started this podcast in 2014 because I wanted to highlight people I met when I was Mayor of Seattle. I hoped that hearing stories from people on the front lines of social change - how they got started, what they cared about - would inspire others to take action. This spring I was the person deciding to take action - I've entered the race for Seattle Mayor. So the podcast has a new twist - It's You, Me, Us, Now - Campaign Edition. Joined by the inimitable Hanna Brooks Olsen, we will take a look behind the scenes of a campaign. She'll ask me not just about the issues, but about how campaigns work, and how it feels to be a candidate. If you want a closer look at what it's like to run for office, sign up and follow along. A little background - the title is derived from the teachings of Marshall Ganz. Change ultimately comes from people sharing their stories to build a shared narrative of the world they want to see. I hope you'll join me in this campaign, check out some of the prior shows, and get involved yourself in trying to change things for the better.

Charles & Mike need a spin off

I could listen to Mudede and McGinn all day long! Amazing episode:

<<<strolling v. loitering, marxism v. capitalism, and 'what kind of animal are we?' Listen for a conversation that keeps veering into unexpected places, and just maybe, gets better it as gets going.>>>>

SO TRUE.

All of these episodes are great. Anyone living in Seattle or who wants to know what is going on here should listen to this podcast.

I especially love the educational aspect and learning about urbanism. It is really important that more people understand the complexity and intersectionality involved with our growing city. This podcast gets to the heart of many of those issues.

Lots to think about

These are great! I need to listen to them a few times to drain all of the great insights from them. Thanks, Mike!

Great podcast!

McGinn is an excellent interviewer, and he has fantastic taste in guests. If you're at all interested in activism, urbanism, or the environmental movement, you should definitely check it out.
