The Downtown Project is a privately funded $350 million dollar experiment lead by CEO of Zappos.com, Tony Hsieh. The goal of this project is to transform a once forgotten Downtown Las Vegas into the "Most community focused large city in the world" by prioritizing people above money. The Downtown Podcast is a weekly video production where every Thursday night host Dylan Jorgensen fills his living room with friends, community members, and visitors, to share the stories, ideas and people that make this community so special. The transformation of Downtown Las Vegas may one day become the blueprint for those interested in having benefits of a community but at the scale of a city. So forget everything you know about what makes motivates people and and join us, as we open plenty of cold beer and step into the shoes of the many small business owners, techno nerds, and entrepreneurs who are defining just how this city-sized experiment plays out.
