Defend Youngstown – As Valley natives, we’ve all felt the need to do it at some point to counter some wise-crack. But defending Youngstown doesn’t have to be negative, it can be so much more – and that’s what Phil Kidd is all about. The YSU alum, community activist, organizer, and founder of Defend Youngstown swung the by the studio to dive a little deeper into that notion. Over some beverages from Modern Methods, Phil and Lisa tackle a lot – the importance of civic engagement, economic development, and some YSU stories.

This is a conversation for the forward thinking, so grab a beer, enjoy and go get involved!
