PodTopics Launches Podcast Series Highlighting Chattanooga-Area Businesses And Organizations

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

PodTopics, a podcast development business of Missing Word Solutions, LLC., announces the launch of a new podcast series that is focused on highlighting businesses and organizations from across the Chattanooga area. The Moving Business Forward Podcast will feature in-depth interviews with executives, community leaders and decision makers, sharing their stories as well as offering insights on how they are navigating the challenges in today’s business climate.

The debut episode of Moving Business Forward, which was released on Tuesday, features an in-depth interview with Rodney Van Valkenburg, the executive director of the Chattanooga Theatre Centre. The conversation with Mr. Van Valkenburg serves as an example of the approach the podcast series plans to take in examining how businesses and organizations from across the region are adapting to the times, innovating and moving their businesses and organizations forward.

Greg Thompson, founder of Missing Word Solutions and the executive producer of PodTopics, developed the concept for the series along with his team. Mr. Thompson, a veteran producer and writer, will serve as the primary interviewer for the Moving Business Forward Series.

“As we have been expanding what PodTopics.com can offer over the past year, we have been working toward creating a platform where businesses and organizations can share their stories and provide some helpful insights in an in-depth way,” said Mr. Thompson. “Our debut episode with Rodney Van Valkenburg sharing his story of returning to lead the Chattanooga Theatre Centre in the middle of a global pandemic demonstrates what we are looking to explore with Moving Business Forward. While it was only part of the conversation, it was very interesting to hear what Rodney had to say about the challenge of adapting during COVID and providing new pathways for the business of operating the Theatre Centre.”

PodTopics is planning to release two episodes of Moving Business Forward each month. Mr. Thompson noted upcoming episodes of the podcast will include interviews highlighting CoLab as well as with the leadership of Network Transport, one of the seven companies in the Chattanooga area to be named to the 2021 Inc. 5,000 List.

The Moving Business Forward Podcast is available through its dedicated page on PodTopics.com, which is https://www.podtopics.com/page/movingbusinessforward. The podcast is also available through all of the major mainstream podcast platforms, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music, and Google Podcasts.

Chattanooga-area companies and organizations interested in sharing their stories through the Moving Business Forward Podcast can contact PodTopics via email, info@missingwordsolutions.com.
