Seattle Growth Podcast 7.5: pandemic perspectives from industrial and artistic Seattle

With the COVID-19 pandemic still wreaking havoc, will Seattle continue to be a desirable place to live, work and do business?

Season 7 of the Seattle Growth Podcast continues to explore these questions through interviews with an array of leaders, influencers and everyday Seattleites.

Episode 5 considers the impact of COVID-19 on the people who live and work in Seattle’s industrial SODO neighborhood, plus a serendipitous conversation in the park on the pandemic’s effect on artists and the arts.

Erin Goodman, the executive director of the SODO Business Improvement Area, shares her perspective on the recent changes south of downtown and how the businesses she works with are navigating the pandemic.

Seattle musician Marco Antonio de Carvalho comments on making art in the age of coronavirus, the importance of public parks and his view for the city’s future beyond the pandemic.
