Going Forward is a narrative podcast about problem solving of all kinds - when it works, when it doesn't, and when the solution doesn't even exist yet. If that sounds broad, that's because it is! We're leaving the door open to tell the stories that interest us, challenge us, and keep us up at night. 

Going Forward started as a collaboration between Julia Drachman and Ula Kulpa, and is currently produced by Julia. Episodes feature original music by Phoenix Glendinning, a composer and musician living in Portland, OR.
