Introducing City of Woodstock Podcast

 Woodstock's city seal says, "Our Story Crafted By Your Dreams." The City of Woodstock was inspired to launch a podcast because the format is such a wonderful way to share a story. Through The City of Woodstock Podcast, we are telling the stories behind the initiatives, events, and policies that make this the community of our residents' dreams.

The City shares information in a lot of ways, including the website, newsletters, social media, and videos on YouTube. A podcast episode enables us to dig deeper into news. These conversations bring a topic to light in a richer way than a written piece can.

The first episode of The City of Woodstock Podcast introduces a wonderful effort called Meals for Woodstock, started by Vingenzo's and supported by the faith community that we want to help grow. Episode 2 is a conversation with Economic Development Program Manager Sylvia Breitbart and Fashion Cupcake owner Amanda Topper about the Sip + Shop event series that helps downtown retailers. There will also be a conversation with Assistant City Manager Rob Hogan and Economic Development Director Brian Stockton to dig into downtown improvements including the hub project.

Quite a few people want to hear from Smith Johnston, who recently rebuilt his family's namesake building at the corner of Main and Mill Streets. He has agreed to be interviewed for an episode, which will be published closer to the opening of Main and Mill Public. The Johnston family was integral to the establishment of Woodstock, so look forward to an interesting and unique story.

An episode about the makers scene in Woodstock is in production. Start-ups and people who have an idea for a product of their own won't want to miss it.

For each episode, I will be hosting a two-part discussion. The conversation will be paused at the midway point to share a news brief of events and announcements from various City departments. At the end of each episode, a spotlight will highlight ways the business connects with the community, why the business is thriving in Woodstock, or what the community's support means to the business owner.

Episodes will include conversations with department directors, business owners, representatives from organizations like Visit Woodstock GA and IN WDSTK, and council members. Colin Ake has great ideas for episodes and a voice made for radio, so expect to hear from him soon.

It's my job to iterate the character and identity of this community. I want to host authentic conversations, and I sincerely hope listeners come to know Woodstock and the people who are pouring their hearts into its story.

The City of Woodstock Podcast will be published every other week. It's presented by Carriage Kia and produced by BG Ad Group.

Residents can subscribe via Spotify, Google, and Apple podcasts.
