Channel 253 seeks to assemble the best podcasts about Tacoma. Whether about politics, news, culture, food, sports, we want to tell the story of Tacoma one episode at a time.

Meet the team

Marguerite Martin – Co-Founder and Visionary

As the creator of the Move to Tacoma podcast, the founding podcast of Channel 253, she is “pod auntie” to everything we’re doing at Channel 253.

Erik Hanberg – Co-Founder and Publisher

If it’s behind the scenes, Erik is the one probably doing it.

Doug Mackey – Co-Founder and Sound Engineer

Doug lends his studio at Moonyard to Channel 253 and makes sure we all sounds amazing. If we ever sound like chipmunks, you’ll know we’ve made Doug angry.

In addition, each podcast or event takes many people to make happen.
