On this episode of Divcast, aimed at those moving to the Durham community, we take a look at six different areas that you should consider about Durham when relocating here: Housing, Transportation, Culture and the Arts, Restaurants and Dining, the Triangle as a whole, and Nature. Our two staff assistants run the show this time, with Brandon Holmes hosting and Kinsley Whitworth as the guest. We hope you grow to love Durham and the Triangle as we have. You can learn more about Project Bri(DDD)ge on our website.
