B&V Radio: A New Podcast from Board & Vellum

By Charles Fadem

One night on a Capitol Hill porch in Seattle, a conversation over a fire pit turned into a podcast.

While I wouldn't be surprised if this scenario has happened before, this particular one turned into B&V Radio, the new podcast from Board & Vellum. My friend Rachel and I were discussing the different neighborhoods of Seattle, chatting about the cities we’ve been to, lived in, liked or disliked, and telling stories from our past. We noticed that Rachel, having been raised in Seattle, described the local neighborhoods in terms of how they once were, compared to how they are now. On the other hand, I was describing Seattle neighborhoods in comparison to the other cities I’ve lived in, like New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. We realized that people new to Seattle, like me (and there are a lot of them), are experiencing the city in a very different way than the people who grew up here. You’d have to be living under a rock to not know that there are a lot of concerns about all the new people moving to the area, but all Rachel and I could think about were the incredible possibilities!

We discussed how these new Seattleites are bringing with them their own sensibilities and perspectives on art, architecture, graphic design, parks, restaurants, retail design, and so much more. This is one of the most exciting times in Seattle’s history in terms of arts and culture, and there is so much to talk about... Hence, a podcast was born! Every other week, we invite a guest to sit down with us and chat about it for a bit, and we hope you'll give the podcast a listen!

B&V Radio is a bi-weekly podcast, available on iTunes and SoundCloud. Follow us to keep up (and catch up) on all the episodes!
