There was standing room only at the Impact Hub in Downtown Seattle on January 18th, as emcee David (Goldy) Goldstein introduced Andrew Villeneuve of Northwest Progressive Institute, and Geov Parrish, someone with a long history with radio, and then the star attraction of the evening, Norman Goldman. Over 225 people were there, and when Norman finished his talk, they spontaneously jumped up and gave him a standing ovation.
Mark Taylor-Canfield, an independent journalist who contributes to many liberal publications, did an excellent review of the evening and Norman’s talk, “Seattle Hosts Progressive Media Gathering – Is Radio Dead?” . Here is the link to read his story:
