San Antonio is a tech-savvy city on the rise with a rich history. In Commerce Street, a podcast from KENS 5, host Erica Zucco and producer Kristin Dean explored topics about business, the economy and technology in the Alamo City in 2021.

The year 2021 saw the continued economic recovery from the devastating affects of the COVID-19 pandemic. As people in San Antonio and around the country reconsidered their careers, many companies had to get creative in attracting staff. Meanwhile, people also reconsidered their living situations, creating geographic shifts and massive demand for housing.  And we explored a manufacturing facility in Texas contributing to the development of the life-saving COVID-19 vaccine.
