On this special episode of The FeedBak Podcast, we visit Austin City Hall to sit down with Mayor Steve Adler for an informative and entertaining discussion. A special thanks to the Mayor’s Office and all those involved for their efforts in putting this together. Among the many topics and ideas discussed are:

  • Saving Austin music: an update on the Omnibus resolution and Agent of Change
  • Instead of preventing growth, how can we make sure it happens in a way that is Austin
  • Housing affordability and the strategies that can be used to obtain it
  • Does Austin have an identity crisis?
  • Austin as an exporter, and extending it’s influence to the world
  • The city’s role in supporting local efforts for change and improvements
  • The return of Uber and Lyft, and the conflicts that can arise between City and State legislature
  • Sanctuary cities and the importance of embracing the uniqueness of each city in Texas
  • Listener questions and a bonus game: Trump or Mr. Burns

“Theres only one way to stop this city from growing, and that is to make it an undesirable place to be. I don’t want to be the mayor that successfully makes Austin and undesirable place to be.”
