Davisville, 12/8/14: Creating a more entrepreneurial city

On today’s program we talk about the efforts to make Davis a more entrepreneurial city with guests Matt Yancey, new CEO of the Davis Chamber of Commerce, and Rob White, the city’s chief innovation officer. The topics include an update on the innovation park proposals (this image shows the location of the Mace Ranch project), Yancey’s goal to add 6,000 jobs to Davis by 2020, investor interest in Davis startups, the impact on housing, and what all this might mean to the average person in town.

Building ideas and solving problems in concert with you, Mother Nature, Davis, and surrounding areas--Australia to the moon! Your idea, our show, simple/unique questions in relation to an idea, roofing, and life. We are stronger together, proactively piecing it together, so join us in figuring out a thing or two. Bring us a problem, lets solve it together.

That's Life

Live Thursday 1-2pm
Replays Sunday 2-3pm

DJ(s): 

Sometimes interviews with local folks. It might be about work, or life choices, or philosophy, or history. Sometimes birding, or art, or other passions. Or about local activities, groups, or events.  It's rarely about politics, and it never includes shouting! When there's no guest, it's laid-back music.  Oldies or Hawaiian or Mom's 1940s songs--whatever feels right that day.

If you have a suggestion for a guest or topic, feel free to phone me at 758-5058 (8am-8pm).
