Seattle Growth Podcast: Season 2 explores the possible return of the Sonics

After attracting tens of thousands of listens and earning critical acclaim in 2016, the Seattle Growth Podcast, hosted by UW Foster School professor Jeff Shulman, is back in 2017 with a second season.

In season two, the podcast will explore how a return of the NBA franchise Seattle Supersonics would impact life in Seattle. As the city grows at a clip not seen since the Gold Rush, efforts to return the Sonics their original home are picking up steam. Whether or not you are a basketball fan, you will gain perspective on how the Sonics would affect real estate, community, traffic, jobs, taxes, and more.

The Seattle Growth Podcast: Season 2 will feature in-depth interviews with former Sonics players, owners, and team executives as well as residents, business leaders, academic experts, and city leaders.
