Rockville, Md., Sept. 25, 2023 – Montgomery County Economic Corporation (MCEDC) has just launched its new podcast, Something to Talk About (https://thinkmoco.com/podcast). Hosted by award-winning journalist Bob Levey and business leader Kelly Leonard, the podcast will feature top Montgomery County business leaders sharing their successes, advice for other businesses, county resources and reasons why thousands of businesses call Montgomery County home. 

Each guest will bring an interesting business perspective and offer ‘something to talk about’ for the community. The podcast is produced in collaboration with Montgomery Community Media (MCM), an MCEDC partner that provides strong community resources for content contributors, among its many offerings.  

In the first episode, MCEDC President & CEO Bill Tompkins sits down with the co-hosts to talk about the assets of the county, MCEDC’s support for growing businesses, and his own personal story.  

“I’m excited for our team to launch this podcast to help reinforce to the public that Montgomery County is a great place to do business,” Tompkins said. “Our podcast will bring special guests to the platform and help businesses gain insights to grow in our county.”
