What do you get when you combine thoughtful people, creative energy and over 10 years of experience in public radio?

The Progress Pod. 



The goal of Progress Pod is to provide insightful, thoughtful and frank conversation. Whether it be with community leaders or our friends and neighbors. Franklin County has a diversity ripe to explore and we aim to do just that. 


We bring you hyper-local information about the people and organizations in our community who are making progress. From school district superintendents to non-profit leaders to elected officials to grass roots activists, the Progress Pod connects you with resources and knowledge about Franklin County that you can't get anywhere else.


Listening to Progress Pod is always FREE! Find us on SoundCloud, and be sure to subscribe on iTunes (and rate us!).


Pete Mazzone and Jeremy Cate have teamed up to produce the local podcast as a program of the Franklin County Coalition for Progress (FCCP). Mazzone and Cate are avid listeners of public radio and podcasts. "Podcasts provide a powerful medium to express ideas and opinions and we think there's a need for that in our community," said Mazzone, a local artist. Mazzone has been involved with the FCCP since it started and has been interested in finding a way to advance its cause. Mazzone is the host of the Progress Pod.


Cate, a stay at home dad and former Borough of Chambersburg Council member, worked in public radio for 10 years and brings a range of radio skills to the table. He produces and edits the show, and does some co-hosting. Cate worked for public radio stations in Kansas City, Fairbanks (Alaska) and Dillingham (Alaska) before moving to Chambersburg in 2008.
