Listen to New Opinions
Civic Cocktail offers a lively look at important issues facing the Puget Sound region and connects community leaders with residents in engaging conversation. The program’s conversational format features elected officials, community leaders, journalists, political pundits and news-makers. Seattle CityClub and Seattle Channel co-produce the program monthly (February to June and October to November).
The internet and a bunch of other forces have us going into our own bubbles and silos,but it is not only possible but necessary that there be spaces where people that are different, have wildly different ideas can still come together. -Monica Guzman
Civic Cocktail is very fun and an engaging forumto hear new ideas regarding growth in the city, transportation policy, education, the huge civic issues that are facing us today, and to actually get a variety of perspectives that you would not otherwise hear. -Dexter Tang
