What happens when Amazon comes to your town?

In September, 2017, Amazon kicked off the country’s biggest lottery — a search for a second headquarters, a.k.a. HQ2. The city that wins that contest might want some insight from the city Amazon chose first. So we're launching a new podcast.   

Prime(d) will explore how Amazon has transformed Seattle, giving a glimpse into the future for prospective Amazon cities and a deeper look at how large tech companies are transforming the fabric of our civic and political life. 

Listen and subscribe in Apple Podcasts or wherever you podcast beginning Oct. 19.
