Podcast fans, grab your headphones.

The City of Bozeman launched its own podcast – called “micromegas” – on Wednesday, October 10. The podcast, a continuing series created by the city’s Office of Economic Development, will focus on success stories of business in Bozeman’s rapidly-growing community. And Bozeman may be one of the first cities in the country to have its own city-run podcast.

The title “micromegas” refers to the idea that “big things come in small packages,” a nod to how small business entrepreneurs can change an entire community.

Episode One, entitled “Meeting Mo’Bowls” looks at local entrepreneurial team, brothers Jesse and Tyler Collins, who run the Mo’Bowls mac and cheese food truck and brick-and-mortar restaurant.

Bozeman Economic Development Director Brit Fontenot says although a podcast might seem like an unconventional way of approaching citizens, it’s proved to be an innovative outreach tool for other groups.

“There’s no particular city that I’m looking at as an example,” Brit said when asked about what inspired his use of the podcast format. “But what I know is that these podcasts are powerful storytelling platforms. And so, to the extent one can be inspired or moved by someone’s story, that’s what we’re trying to achieve with the podcast.”

The podcast, hosted by Wisconsin native Eli Bowe, is available on the Apple Podcast app, Overcast, iTunes, Spotify, and other podcast platforms.

The city is looking for local entrepreneurs who want to participate in future podcasts. If you think you’d be a good candidate, you can email Eli at vista@bozeman.net.

An official introduction to the podcast is linked below.
