817 Podcast - Fort Worth's Monday Morning Show

Fort Worth's Monday Morning Show

Do you love Fort Worth and care about what goes on in our amazing city? Well, welcome to the 817 Podcast a weekly Monday morning show hosted by two Fort Worthians who banter and dissect the biggest stories in local culture, politics, and business. EJ Carrion tech CEO and Jimmy Sweeney founder of the Grand Berry Theater will host a diverse guest list of local leaders that drive Fort Worth’s future. We believe Fort Worth can be a nationally known destination for innovation, creativity, and economic opportunity. However, the climate in the city today is polarizing between an evolving community that deals with historic Cowtown roots and a wave of progressive newcomers. What we do today and in the next decade is crucial to the future of the Funk. How we respond to political friction, wealth inequality, and social injustice in our communities can make or break our national reputation. Do we become Austin, Texas, or Jacksonville, Florida? Join us every week as we do our part to keep either from happening. Have a story you want us to highlight? DM us @817pod or text 817-318-6375
