Ep.61- Bill Lawson, Mahoning Valley Historical Society

Testing the waters of hoppy flavored beer, Lisa Resnick and Bill Lawson sipped on some Birdfish, Noble Creature and Penguin City on this week’s podcast. Bill talks about his path to being the keeper of our Valley’s history, how they are constantly looking for artifacts for our future reference, his viewpoint of the mills closing and how we can use all we know to catapult us forward.

Ep.28- Derrick McDowell

Homes and Hops is about our community – looking at all aspects of our amazing area to help build it up and make it what it can truly be. It’s in that spirit, as we are all reflecting and making our own sense of the events of the last few weeks, that I sat down with community leader and founder of the Youngstown Flea, Derrick McDowell, for an open, honest, and sometimes uncomfortable conversation about race, racism, history and starting a real dialogue in our city. Progress for our area isn’t just about bringing in new businesses, growing new industries, sitting back and expecting change. It’s about having difficult conversations about the past and working hard in order to build our future together. I hope you’ll listen. Thank you.
