Great Conversations for a Greater Texas – Checkout the Greater Texas Podcast

BLF - Greater Texas - New Podcast Episode Cover(3)
  • We have recently started a new podcast called Greater Texas.
  • On each one, we invite an industry leader to discuss the topics facing our great state and how to improve.
  • I hope you will listen and join in the conversation as to how we go about building a better Texas.

This week’s blog is a little bit different than the usual enthralling yarns I weave. But I think it will undoubtedly be just as thrilling as the normal ones.

A few months ago, I decided to expand the Bukowski media empire – I started a new podcast. Its called Greater Texas and in it, we explore how to build a better Texas.

So that’s what I want to talk about this week – what the podcast is, why I started it, and why you should listen.

What Greater Texas Adds to the Landscape

One of the first things you have to do when you decide to start a podcast is figure out what you want it to be. What will the format be, will you have guests, etc. And to do that, you need to know why you are starting the pod, what you want to accomplish, etc. I’ll come back to the why in the next section. In this one, I first want to address the what.

I decided fairly quickly that it would be a guest driven podcast. As much as I enjoy hearing myself talk, I reckon the listeners would get pretty sick of just listening to me drone on and on and on.

As a result, each episode contains an industry or thought leader or influencer who cares about what’s happening in Texas and wants to help improve it. Folks like Cross Moceri, Jim Young, Phyllis Snodgrass, and Dan Tobin have been kind enough to be the first few guests on the show.

We generally start out by talking about the person’s background, how they got into the field they are in, and why they are in it. After that, we switch to focus on the issues facing Texas and how we can solve them. Because Texas is a great place. But it has a lot of change coming. And to build a better Texas, we need to be discussing the issues now.

What’s the Point of Greater Texas?

So now we know what Greater Texas is. But why? What’s the point? Aren’t there enough podcasts out there already?

First, much like pizza and beer, you can never have too many podcasts. And especially not in the area we are discussing. I call it nominally a commercial real estate blog and that’s because that’s where I work. And that’s where a lot of the guests work. But our conversations will drift far outside just commercial real estate. We really want to focus on building a better Texas.

And that’s why I decided to start this podcast. Look, I’ll be honest – obviously one of the motivations is to get my name and firm out there and to build more business. I think anyone who has a podcast would tell you that if they are honest. But its not my sole or biggest motivation.

I have lived in Texas for 19 of the last 21 years. I really like it here. And I think its extremely exciting to see all the amazing growth. But that doesn’t mean we are perfect. Far from it. There are a lot of areas we can improve on. And we absolutely need to improve to keep up with the growth that is coming.

So that’s what I want to talk about in the podcast – the issues facing Texas and how we can resolve them. And we do it from a nominally real estate point of view because that’s what we know. And that’s what we can help solve.

We need to have conversations on building a better Texas. Because if we just stand still, things will rapidly go down hill. So I hope you will listen and subscribe to the podcast. And join me in our conversations about making a Greater Texas.
