Hey everybody and welcome to the first Anacortes Chat podcast! This short episode is a quick introduction to the show, its founding ideas and how it came about. Anacortes Chat is centered around the small community of Anacortes and its members. Episodes will feature stories and discussions with residents and public figures and in some ways, it is just an excuse for Joe to meet and get to know more of the beautiful town of Anacortes! The idea of the show began on the fourth of July and grew slowly into what you are now listening to. There was a fair bit of fun research that went into the initial stages but we are very excited to be bringing you this premiere episode and the all the rest to follow, so stay tuned for our first full interview and beyond!
