About Us

Host Ben Traywick sits down with key local players for frank, informed analysis of Charleston, South Carolina's growth tsunami and the complicated web of problems and interests it has spawned. How much of the old-school Lowcountry lifestyle remains, and can whatever is left be saved? Private equity developers' deep pockets. Millennials' urban tendencies. The explosion of multi-family development. A new hotel on every corner. Cruise ships. Coastal flooding, beach erosion and global warming. Traffic congestion and parking garages. Suburban sprawl. Strained infrastructure. Soft politicians. Uninformed citizens. The emptying out of the Midwest into the South. Unrestrained government agencies like the Ports Authority and Patriot's Point Development Authority. Zoning ordinances, comprehensive plans, and the BAR. There's a new issue every day: we cover them all. The Meeting and Broad Podcast provides listeners with information and analysis about the nuts and bolts of what is actually happening with development and growth issues in Charleston: where we've been, where we're headed, and which policies make sense, all delivered through discussions with experts, participants and policy makers in the development, growth and public policy spaces.

Episode 3-medal-of-honor-museum-with-bill-phillips: Episode #3: Medal of Honor Museum w/ Bill Phillips

Medal of Honor Museum Foundation Chairman and CEO Bill Phillips sits down with Ben to discuss the project, address the Town of Mount Pleasant Planning Commission's rejection of the museum plan, and to make the case for the museum as a worthy use of the land at Patriot's Point. Should the Foundation be treated as a "developer"? Is the proposed design unworkable? Are there alternatives? What is likely to happen to that land if the museum project is rejected? We address these and other questions on episode #3.

"Plan West Ashley" claims to be a direct expression of public input during the West Ashley Revitalization Commission process. A closer look at the data indicates the Commission placed the controversial 526 extension higher in the Plan's priorities than the public input did. Have the ugly politics of I-526 commandeered West Ashley Revitalization?

Episode episode1-cruise-ships-with-winslow-hastie: Episode #1: Cruise Industry Pressures Increase (w/ guest Winslow Hastie)

Charleston's cruise passenger traffic is set to increase by 50% in 2019, when the Historic District will see ships 150' high on 90+ days per year. The cruise industry is seeing exponential growth, but currently provides only 4% of the State Ports' Authority's revenue. Meanwhile, Mount Pleasant looks to provide access for overflow cruise traffic by ferrying passengers to Shem Creek and Patriot's Point. Is there a political solution to the growing pressure for the Holy City to accommodate ever more cruise traffic? Will the new terminal at Union Pier ever clear the legal hurdles to become a reality? Who are the players on each side? We dive into these and more with Historic Charleston Foundation's new President and CEO, Winslow Hastie.
