By definition, growing pains are the problems that are experienced as something grows larger or more successful -- and there's no doubt that Seattle has been experiencing that in recent years. But has this city really become more successful? And what do these changes mean for young people? 

In this podcast:

  • What Seattle's higher minimum wages mean for college students.
  • How the City of Seattle wants young people to give their input on the Seattle 2035 Comprehensive Plan
  • How one restaurant, Harvest Beat, is reaching new vegan and vegetarian Seattleites.
