The Seattle Growth Podcast is a 13-episode exploration of this booming city’s ongoing transformation. A new episode premieres each Monday. Prior episodes have considered Seattle’s tech boom, the challenges of buying a home and renting, homelessness, the city’s character and culture, and efforts to build density. Upcoming episodes take on the topics of 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.
