Dunn joins That's So Cincinnati podcast to talk about his experience overseeing the CVB's diversity and inclusion initiatives. 
Dunn, board chairman of the Cincinnati African-American Chamber of Commerce, also offers his perspective on the state of race relations in the city. And he explains what "Cincinnati polite" means when it comes to tackling racial issues.
And the former SORTA board chairman talks candidly about the state of public transportation in the region. 
In the opening segment, hosts Jason Williams and Sharon Coolidge breakdown the latest bad news about the streetcar and address the 2020 Hamilton County prosecutor's race.
