This is a paid piece from the Sioux Metro Growth Alliance.

Simplified: The new "Growing Places" podcast from Sioux Metro Growth Alliance is telling community stories and promoting economic development.

Why it matters

  • The Sioux Metro Growth Alliance launched the new "Growing Places" podcast at the end of January. New episodes come out weekly.
  • The goal is to let more people know about the economic development work the organization does. It's also to reach more people and share stories both from the economic development group and from the communities it serves.
  • Episodes are short, interview-style conversations with investors, small business owners and development professionals, among others.
"Our hope is to have business owners and community members from a bunch of communities around the Sioux Metro hop on the podcast and share their stories," said Molly Stevens, an intern with the growth alliance.
