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 stadium didn't stay empty for long. The city worked tirelessly to convince the NFL to give Indianapolis an expansion team. Then, they got a phone call from Baltimore that would change their entire strategy (and upset a band).
