Entertaining & Informative: Worth a Listen
This program has the voices of real people sharing their diverse perspectives on urban growth. I like that I gain an understanding of not only what people in the community think, but also why they think that way. It promotes tolerance and mutual understanding of a controversial topic.
What a great podcast and first episode.
Very informative. I am excited for the next segment!
Great podacast about changes in Seattle.
Great concept and fantastic execution. Enabling me to understand the city much better. The latent characteristics and perceptions of the city is manifested in this podcast through the voice of people belonging to the city.
