On November 28, 2018, the City of Richfield started a weekly podcast dedicated to expounding on the city’s many projects and programs, as well as talking to people of interest within the community.

The podcast, which is titled That’s Rich(field), is available on iTunes and Spotify.

Check out the most-recent episodes: 

Episode XXII - Lyndale Avenue Reconstruction Project

Lyndale Avenue is not under construction, it is under reconstruction! The Lyndale Avenue Reconstruction Project kicked off in earnest in April and is moving along on schedule. For the twenty-second episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast we talk with project engineer Logan Vlasaty about the changes coming to Lyndale Avenue, the project planning process and how it will be safer for residents in its future iteration. 

 

Episode XXIII - Centennial Elementary School Principal Lee Ann Wise

Summing up retiring Centennial Elementary School Principal Lee Ann Wise is a next to impossible task. She has been a devout educator for 30 years, who has contributed in some way, shape or form to thousands of Richfield students’ lives. She is also the most successful women’s basketball coach in Richfield High School history. Through it all, she has been fair and consistent. For her contributions to the city, the Richfield City Council announced that June 4, 2019, will be Lee Ann Wise Day in Richfield.

For the twenty-third episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast we sit down with Principal Wise to discuss her career, how teaching has changed over the last three decades and her historic coaching run.

 

Episode XXIV - Firefighter homecoming 

Ever since he was a kid growing up in Richfield, Charlie Keis knew he wanted to help people. Eventually, this led him to become a firefighter. However, few people realize it is next to impossible to become a firefighter for the town you grew up in if it is part of the Twin Cities metro. Charlie’s journey post-Richfield took him to Duluth, then Bismark, North Dakota and eventually back to Richfield as the city’s newest firefighter.  

For the twenty-fourth episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast we sit down with Charlie to discuss his journey, how appreciative residents are of the services the RFD offers, and what it is like providing high-quality fire and medical aid to his hometown.   

 

Episode XXV - Minnesota House Rep. Michael Howard

This year’s Minnesota legislative session went into overtime to reach a budget agreement. Find out what happened, as well as what it is like to be a first-term state representative as we sit down with our old friend and former at-large city councilmember Michael Howard for the twenty-fifth episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast. 

Episode XXVI - Richfield Dream Home  

In the past three years, Richfield's housing market has been rated first, first and fourth by the Star Tribune in their annual housing index. People love the quality of the housing stock and the friendly hometown atmosphere the city provides. Sometimes, people are not even thinking about buying a home in Richfield, but as soon as they see what the city has to offer, they stop looking anywhere else. 

In this twenty-sixth episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast we sit down with Andrea Pendergast to discuss her homebuying journey, which eventually led her to find her dream home in...you guessed it...Richfield, Minnesota.
