Recorded: October 4, 2019

GNKD4 | Global Nashville with Karl Dean focuses on the elements of Nashville that make it a global place. Today’s episode is a roundtable on current issues with former Mayor Karl Dean talking with TNWAC Board Chair Jim Shepherd, Ambassador Dick Bowers and co-host TNWAC President Pat Ryan.

The roundtable started with tales of the North Atlantic with Mayor Dean recounting his summer sailing vacation in the Svalbard archipelago in the far North Atlantic, and the story of his “abandoning ship” and subsequent helicopter rescue. He also talked about Svalbard, the Arctic and climate change.

The other topics tackled by today’s roundtable were the new leadership in Nashville with the election of Mayor Cooper; international business in Nashville; the city as an international “destination” including the work of Sister Cities of Nashville; developments with New Americans including refugee resettlement and TIRRC, and cultural events in the city.
