Happy New Year!

Today, the first workday of the new year for some of you, and the last day of the holiday season for others, I wanted to take a moment and look back at all that we've accomplished together with the Econ Dev Show Podcast over the last year.

First off, thank you for listening. Secondly, thank you for telling me how much you've enjoyed the podcast. I always love to hear from you, but your messages, calls, and emails of support have been fantastic.

The podcast launched with its first episode on May 3rd, 2021. Since then, we've published a total of 31 episodes with 30 unique guests.

If you've enjoyed the podcast and haven't already done so, please leave a review here.  Your ratings and reviews help other economic developers to discover and listen alongside you.

I've enjoyed sitting down and talking with our various economic development experts and creating each episode,  just as much, and maybe even more than you've enjoyed listening to them. While we all work in the same industry, as evidenced by our cast of guests, the unique range of experiences and expertise in the industry is vast. I hope that I've helped convince you that while there's nothing new under the sun, there's always a new way to look at any situation.

Maybe you've been listening from the beginning, but most likely, you joined us at some point along the way. Either way, if you haven't listened to them all, take a look back with us, and maybe give a listen to any that you might have missed.

Here are my favorite episodes, the five with the least plays, and the top five most listened to ones of 2021:
