I listened to a great archived interview this evening.

It was a 30 minute piece, with Dr. Sherry Linkon asking questions of Jim Cossler from the Youngstown Business Incubator on her WYSU show.

If you have never heard of the works of the Incubator, or have been a follower for a while, you should listen to this interview.

Seriously. Everyone should listen to it.

You can access it here.

I found the interview by reading Dr. Linkon's first post at her new blog. She is also the co-director of the Center for Working Class Studies at YSU.

Her work highlights some new blogs about the Youngstown region that have recently popped up, listed below:

So be sure to update your blogrolls!!!

who wrote a series of haikus today, describing the joy of parallel parking (as opposed to the inefficient and unsafe diagonal parking on Federal Street)

driving, seeking, look!
perfect size to fit my ford
can't believe my luck

pull up, glance behind
tires sweep gracefully toward curb
inch forward, now break

mirror down, check gloss
two quarters buys me one hour
off to change the world

. . . are we reaching a critical mass of Ytown blogs yet?
