Hidden Indy is a podcast telling the story of how Indianapolis came to be, through stories you probably haven’t heard. The story is mostly told through the lens of sports. Jeff and Blaine spent over 6 months interviewing multiple people involved in building Indianapolis from UNIGOV on, including three former Sports Corp Presidents, the VP of the Pacers, former Director of the Lilly Endowment, CEO of IndyCar, the President and Executive Director of the Pan Am Games, President of the Super Bowl Committee, two former Chamber of Commerce Presidents, the list goes on. Blaine and Jeff tell these unique stories over ten episodes with the interviews interwoven throughout with the final goal of getting more involvement in non-profits through board participation and volunteering throughout the city.
The Indiana Pacers were one of the most successful franchises in the history of the ABA, but found the transition to the NBA as well as finding a new owner challenging. At the same time, the city saw the need to move the team to the center of the city, causing the creation of Market Square Arena.
