The fifth episode of the Seattle Growth Podcast, hosted by the UW Foster School’s Jeff Shulman, explores the changing character and culture of Seattle, and asks whether it should—or even can—be preserved.
- Hear from two Seattle natives, Hazel Margaretes (5:30) and Dan Morgan (15:47), on what Seattle’s character and culture mean to them. And Sam Farrazaino, an artist-turned-developer who founded Equinox Studios in Georgetown, shares his perspective on the importance of culture.
- Shulman also interviews Nate Daum, managing director of the UW’s Startup Hall (0:00); Taylor Graham, vice-president of business operations for Seattle Sounders FC (1:45); Bojie Mageo, director of marketing at Swurveys (2:13); Kathy Kelley (2:55); Jeff Mangalin (3:25); Mike Lang (3:55); Don Schulze, owner of Shultzy’s Bar & Grill and president of University District Parking Associates (4:25); and Greg Smith, CEO of Urban Visions real estate (51:00).
The Seattle Growth Podcast is a 13-episode exploration of this booming city’s ongoing transformation. A new episode premieres each Tuesday. The first in the series consider Seattle’s tech boom, home buying, homelessness, and the city’s character and culture. Upcoming episodes take on the topics of density, emergency services, health care, public utilities, schools, transportation, city budget and visions for the future.
The series is hosted and produced by Shulman, an associate professor of marketing and the Marion B. Ingersoll Professor at the UW Foster School of Business.
