Special Briefing Podcast Launched


The Volcker Alliance in partnership with the Penn Institute for Urban Research (Penn IUR), today launched a new podcast – Special Briefing – that examines fiscal actions states and municipalities are taking in response to COVID-19, unprecedented federal stimulus aid, inflation, and rising interest rates.

Hosted by William Glasgall, senior director, public finance at the Volcker Alliance and veteran financial journalist, and Susan Wachter, Penn IUR co-director, the podcast brings together governors, mayors, members of Congress, academics, Wall Street’s most successful investors, and nationally recognized public finance experts to share their experiences and strategies for today and the future.

During the podcast episodes, which are based on the popular Special Briefing webinar series, experts also share their perspectives on solutions to widespread economic challenges like inflation and whether tax cuts  in many states may lead to budget shortfalls in future years.
The Special Briefing podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, iHeart Radio and more.
