THE SEA-TOWN PODCAST: Interviewing Seattle's Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs
About This Show
Here in Seattle, we take great pride in our various neighborhoods that we live in and all the things that make this area of the country so great… and the local businesses are a large part of what shape the flavor and character of these great neighborhoods that we love.
I created this podcast to help tell the stories of other Seattle based businesses, entrepreneurs and others involved in the community. I want to highlight these people and what they are doing in serving others and their community here in Seattle.
I mean really... Who doesn't want to know more about our local businesses and the brave souls who started them? Who wouldn't want to support them and see them and our neighborhoods thrive?!

7 days ago
This week’s guest is Tracy Record, Co-founder and operator of the West Seattle Blog, West Seattle's go-to news outlet. With husband, Patrick Sand, together they have run the West Seattle Blog full time for the last 10+ years (since 2006). Highlights From This Episode: The West Seattle Blog was launched in December of 2005 by Tracy Record as a personal project to have a place to write about West Seattle. The turning point was the famous December 2006 windstorm, which knocked out power for days, for a lot of people around Seattle, including West Seattle. They started getting a lot of inquires from people in the community asking if they knew when the power would be coming back on and after that they just started covering the local news around West Seattle. A year later, they decided to make it their full time business. Prior to doing the West Seattle Blog full-time, Tracy had been a manager and producer in TV news for 20+ years and Patrick's background is in journalism, radio, news and advertising. Patrick is the chief photographer and runs the business aspect of the West Seattle Blog, while Tracy is the full-time editor and chief reporter who compiles the news stories and blog updates. Christopher Boffoli has been a freelance photographer and contributor to the West Seattle Blog for the last 10 years and has become an internationally known art photographer with his "Big Appetites" creations series of photography. What do you love most about what you do? When they can reassure the community and when they can find out about stuff that the public doesn't know about but needs to know about. Where there other community blogs around when you got started? CapitalHillSeattle.com was started around the same time and they are still going strong and are a great resource for Capital Hill residence an news. What is your greatest strength? We are dedicated to accuracy in their stories and being honest about what we do and how we do it.
