From South Bend to Waterloo

Welcome to the first episode of our three-part series documenting our trip to the Iowa caucus. On this episode, Dustin and I are joined by Maria Gibbs and John Garry to reflect on our Saturday in Waterloo, IA.

Saved From the Wrecking Ball – Live at the Armory

Welcome to episode six of season three of South Bend on Purpose. This season we’re telling the stories of people who are betting on South Bend by investing new purpose into old spaces, whether that's an old industrial building or a once lively plot of land; people whose internal purpose has manifested itself into a physical part of our city – the streets, parks, buildings, and restaurants of South Bend. Each episode tells the story of a space in South Bend, and the season is structured around a series of live events where we interview the people behind the projects. On Monday, August 12th we hosted the final live event at Ironhand Wine Bar inside The Amory. We interviewed Brad and Regina Emberton, the duo behind The Armory's transformation, and enjoyed an evening of eclectic vinyl spun live by Ethan Marosz, tours of the building, and spirited conversation. For a visual glimpse into the evening, read our story A Night at The Armory. Our conversation explores the Emberton’s path to...

What a Park Means to a City w/ Aaron Perri

Welcome to episode five of season three of South Bend on Purpose. This season we’re telling the stories of people who are betting on South Bend by investing new purpose into old spaces, whether that's an old industrial building or a once lively plot of land; people whose internal purpose has manifested itself into a physical part of our city – the streets, parks, buildings, and restaurants of South Bend. Each episode tells the story of a space in South Bend, and while most of the season’s episodes were recorded at live events, this one is a throwback to the season two format of the two of us in the studio with a guest. We interviewed Aaron Perri, Executive Director of Venues Parks & Arts, about his work to re-imagine the future of Howard Park, South Bend’s oldest and largest park. Our wide-ranging conversation explores Aaron’s history with South Bend, his thoughts on what a good park can do for a neighborhood, how he thinks about ending creative projects, the founding of Howard...

119 Years at The Lauber – Live at The J.C. Lauber Building

Welcome to episode four of season three of South Bend on Purpose. This season we’re telling the stories of people who are betting on South Bend by investing new purpose into old spaces, whether that's an old industrial building or a once lively plot of land; people whose internal purpose has manifested itself into a physical part of our city – the streets, parks, buildings, and restaurants of South Bend. Each episode tells the story of a space in South Bend, and the season is structured around a series of live events where we interview the people behind the projects. On Tuesday, June 25th we hosted the third of these live events in The Lauber Kitchen and Bar, a newly-opened restaurant inside the historic J.C. Lauber Building.

May the Storefronts Be Filled – Live on Western Avenue

Neighborhoods, and the streets that run through them, are the lifeblood of our city, the spaces where daily life unites with culture, art, and business. Streets like Western Avenue, at once owned by everyone and no one, are often an emblem of pride for the surrounding residents, but without investment can deteriorate into a blemish on the neighborhood’s identity. It’s a challenge and an opportunity. This is a story about a group of people who took on the responsibility of fighting for their corridor’s future, transforming Western from a street that you would drive through, to a neighborhood that you drive to. Welcome to episode three of season three of South Bend on Purpose. This season we’re telling the stories of people who are betting on South Bend by investing new purpose into old spaces, whether that's an old industrial building or a once lively plot of land; people whose internal purpose has manifested itself into a physical part of our city – the streets, parks, building...

The $6 Million Side Project – Live at The Hibberd

Three years ago, a local couple purchased a seemingly nondescript printing plant in downtown South Bend for $240,000. In the coming months, together with eight additional partners, the couple would gather $6 million to undertake what is perhaps the city’s most ambitious and risk-laden side project in recent history. Their goals: contribute to the city’s resurgence and “don’t lose any f***ing money.” Welcome to episode two of season 3 of South Bend on Purpose. This season we’re telling the stories of people who are betting on South Bend by investing new purpose into old spaces, whether that's an old industrial building or a once lively plot of land; people whose internal purpose has manifested itself into a physical part of our city – the streets, parks, buildings, and restaurants of South Bend.

Downtown Matters - Live at LaSalle Kitchen & Tavern

For anyone, owning a building and business in downtown South Bend over the past twenty-eight years has been anything but easy. How people conjured up the courage to invest in South Bend after watching decade after decade of near-constant decline and demolition is beyond us. Mark McDonnell did it and is the subject of today’s episode.

Live at the Exner: Pete Buttigieg in Conversation with INVANTI

It is difficult to imagine a world where INVANTI, West.SB, South Bend on Purpose, and Vested Interest exist without Pete Buttigieg first being elected mayor. His resurgent vision and talented administration have turned South Bend into a “shining model of urban reinvention.” But the resurgence cannot stop at city hall. South Bend and the countless American cities it resembles rely on entrepreneurs to make new things. Enter INVANTI. INVANTI is a startup generator based in South Bend that activates and attracts entrepreneurial talent to start companies that make communities stronger. The current cohort comprises seven people from New York, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Miami, Ireland, and Mishawaka focused on building scalable ventures to support America’s small business owners. On Thursday, February 7th Pete Buttigieg interviewed a panel of the cohort members about their time in South Bend and the problems they aim to solve. This evening took place inside a newly renovated wing of Th...
