Welcome to the Exploring Washington State Podcast. Four times a week we publish episodes about Washington State.

Our host Scott Cowan has casual conversations with interesting people who are from Washington State or who are doing noteworthy things in Washington State.  The Exploring Washington State Podcast is never scripted and only lightly edited.  Authentic conversations, genuine people, and always local.

On Monday we chat with musicians, performers, venue owners, producers, promoters, anyone connected to the vibrant music industry in Washington State.

Wednesdays we share conversations with business owners, executives, and others who are running interesting businesses in Washington. We also speak with people who are doing creative and amazing things across the state.

Thursdays we speak with athletes, team owners, organizers, and more about sports and sporting activities.

Friday we talk food and drink. Local chefs, brewers, distillers, coffee roasters, cider makers, wineries etc.

Each week you can hear more about Washington State just by listening in. Welcome to the Exploring Washington State Podcast.
