The newest episode of the NACCED Holistic Housing Podcast is now available! Recorded during NACCED’s Community Development month, this multi-perspective episode features the voices of community development professionals from across the country. In-studio, Charlie’s Angels are joined by Jennifer Daniels, Planning & Community Development Manager for Arlington, County, VA. Then, we hear from members in Salt Lake, Essex, Allegheny, Los Angeles, and Henrico Counties. Themes emerge related to the people-centered focus of community development work, the diversity of this profession (because it’s everything from rehabilitating inmates to improving sidewalks), the importance of understanding each communities’ culture, and most importantly, why we’re all in this together. Plus, Heather and Laura reveal their new themesongs, the team debates the merits of Sonic’s new pickle juice slushie, everyone celebrates the increase in CDBG funding, and we roll out some new and surprising questions, like – is ravioli a pop tart? This episode feels like a conversation with friends – typical of this great, big NACCED family.You can access the show now oniTunesand also atTuneInandStitcher!
