We will have the press release to go soon but we thought we should welcome you to the website for The Downtown Phoenix Podcast!
What are we, you ask? We’re a 30-minute (give or take a few) weekly podcast that is about community and neighborhood engagement as much as it is about news and events. Our host is Edward Jensen, hailed as one of downtown’s leading thinkers and doers and a member of many downtown community boards. He hosted four live one-on-one conversations with the then-City Council candidates in October 2013 and he thought that this is a good continuation of that.
Production of new episodes begins next week and our first episode will be online on March 3 in the morning. We’re working to line up some awesome guests and some compelling programming for you. Our initial run will be eight episodes (weekly on Mondays until April 21). After then, we’ll be thinking how we can re-tool the program to make it even better.
We encourage you to check out our list of our Ten Editorial Principles. We think that we’re one of a few podcast series to have such a set of principles. And check out the other pages as well. We’ll be tweaking this website this week so if something’s not fully right, wait an hour until we’re back online.
Welcome! And please give us a listen beginning March 3. We think you’ll be pleased.
