Could You Elaborate A month ago, I set out to create a podcast to showcase the life experiences of service and industry workers whose humanity is easily overlooked or taken advantage of. Since then, I have had the opportunity to sit down with local business owners, servers, cooks, entertainers, and community members, who've shared their stories with me regarding lives pre-COVID, into the pandemic, and further past the shut down.
Given the state of society, the too often divided, emotional knee-jerk dynamic, it is just as important as ever that we listen to and hear the challenges and celebrations in each others' narratives, if only to remember: there is another person behind the other screen.
While I recognize I come from great privilege, my ability to afford living expenses has dwindled, so I am asking for contributions to help support the space needed to continue doing this work. As it stands, interviewer, producer, writer, editor, sound design, and composer; this has taken and will continue to take a great deal of time and energy to produce.
Anything at all is appreciated, and if you'd like to contact me directly, feel free to email me at [email redacted], you can also message me on instagram at cyepodcast.
