The Econ Dev Show in 2022 and 2023

Table of Contents

Welcome to 2023. In 2022, I published 46 episodes of the Econ Dev Show Podcast. Unfortunately, since I try to release weekly, I missed six whole weeks. Oops!

This year I plan to increase the podcast output and look forward to continuing the great conversations on economic development. As we head into the new year, whether you are just starting in your career or are a seasoned professional in the field, there is always something new to learn about this fascinating subject

If you're doing something interesting in economic development or know of someone who is, please reach out.  I'd love to chat and share the story on the podcast.  Here's my scheduling link.

Thanks for listening!​

In case you missed them (and you probably did), here are the ten least listened-to episodes of 2023:

Bottom Ten

  1. Economic Development in New Mexico with Kristen Gamboa
