YIP Ideasmiths Podcast – Episode #001 – Marc Wilken

By admin

In our ongoing attempt to bring you the voices of young Philadelphia, we’re trying a new approach: actual voices.

Welcome to the YIP Ideasmiths Podcast, where we explore the stories of the young people behind some of your favorite projects, events, and organizations in the area. In our inaugural episode we talk with Marc Wilken, Concessions Manager at Philadelphia Parks and Recreation about the genesis of 2013’s new public park space, the Oval.

This is an experiment we’re trying – if you like it and want to hear more, let us know by rating us and commenting on iTunes, or by sharing on Twitter and Facebook. And if you know a local young leader with a great story to tell, send us an email at We’ll be capturing these in mixed media between the podcast and written posts. The podcast will be available soon via iTunes.

The Oval kicks of 2014 in a co-debut with Philly Tech Week called Arcade at The Oval, Friday April 4th, from 7:00-10:30 p.m. (rain date Sunday, April 6th). For more information:
