Fountain Valley Launches Podcast with Tripepi Smith Assistance

City of Fountain Valley logoIn January 2024, The City of Fountain Valley engaged Tripepi Smith to help produce  “A Nice Place to Podcast,” the City’s new monthly podcast hosted by Fountain Valley Mayor Glenn Grandis. Each episode features a special guest to discuss a variety of relevant topics, including happenings in the City, local business highlights, new California laws and much more.

“The idea for this podcast was to provide unique stories, perspectives and information to the residents of Fountain Valley through an avenue that has grown in popularity and is easily accessible for our residents. I love the community of Fountain Valley and we have so many great stories to tell here, so we wanted a way to tell those stories and bring our community together,” said Mayor Grandis. “Tripepi Smith’s podcasting experience added tremendous value to helping us get off the ground. Their technical support and expertise helped us craft a solid studio experience that brought efficiency to our ongoing production process.”

Technical experts Audrin Baghaie and Josh Hernandez led the charge, providing equipment recommendations and assistance with the initial studio set-up. Audrin Baghaie continues to provide podcast editing support to the City with oversight from Business Analyst Kylie Sun. Baughaie is also featured as the voiceover artist in the podcast’s introduction.

“The City was really excited about breaking into the podcast sphere,” said Kylie. “We were honored to have the opportunity to kick off this new venture and help Mayor Glenn Grandis bring his vision to life. Seeing the podcast take off has been both rewarding and educational; each episode has taught me more about the City and all that makes it so special.”
