Why Does the Localist Podcast Exist? Wrapping up Season One with Guest Interviewer Mike Rollwagen

This week on The Localist, Carrie is joined by the inimitable Mike Rollwagen — her dad. Mike guest hosts to ask Carrie some thought provoking questions about Season One, the evolution of the Localist brand, and much more. Mike and Carrie dive in with the original intent of the podcast and how that has shifted not only in response to the pandemic but as a holistic evolution of growth. Carrie elaborates on the Localist brand’s focus on community, and discusses all aspects of podcast guests, from reaching out, to scheduling, to the actual interview. Mike and Carrie then break down the hard work that goes into creating each episode, and Carrie gives a shout out to the people behind the scenes. Mike and Carrie wrap up with Carrie’s dream guest and some teasers for season two.
