If you’re interested in really understanding the Triangle, you should check out the 919 Podcast.
The Triangle is changing, and with it, North Carolina. The 919 Podcast is about the over 1.5 million people living in and transforming the Triangle for the better.
On the show, John Carter is joined by by business owners, entrepreneurs, politicians, students, restaurant and brewery owners, people involved in professional and college sports, leaders of local attractions, and more.
Recent shows have featured Steve Schewel, the Mayor of Durham; Jennifer Dasal, the associate curator of contemporary art at the North Carolina Museum of Art and host of the ArtCurious podcast; Abby Gingrich, the Business Development Manager for the RTP Foundation; Matt Sutor, Director of Marketing & Communications for the Durham Bulls baseball club; Patrick Woodson, co-founder of Brewery Bhavana; Jessica Phillips and Crystal Lloyd, NC State Parks rangers; Glenn and Dave of NCBeerGuys, and many more.
Here on Triangle on the Cheap, you learn about all that there is to do, on a budget, in the Triangle. On the 919 Podcast you get to know the people who make those things happen. It’s easy to forget that the museums, parks, breweries, concerts and festivals that we enjoy are the result of the vision and hard work of so many people living in the 919. That’s what the 919 Podcast is about, a behind-the-scenes look at what makes the Triangle the Triangle.
