Sounds Like Impact: A newsletter for audio and action - Vol. 31
Welcome to Sounds Like Impact!
In this newsletter we have two sets of dynamic duos. First, a guest curation from Erin Hynes and Kattie Laur from Curious Tourism podcast. And later for our spotlight, an interview with Dr. Lauren Crossland-Marr and Corinne Ruff of A CRISPR Bite podcast.
ICYMI: Last week we talk about Indigenous Science. I encourage you to go back if you haven’t taken a look and also check out the show Climate Mana, I saw recently posted on podcast listservs. I posted an article about the impact of climate change on South Pacific Islanders and Climate Mana is a show from the Pacific Islander POV.
🌏 Also, last week marked the end of season for Degrees podcast, a show I produced two episodes for and did research and guest booking for. The season finale guest that I helped secure is one episode you won’t want to miss (but frankly, all the episodes this season were incredible!).
💸 Correction: Giving Tuesday is actually next Tuesday (the 28th, at least here in the U.S)! Please share in the comments some organizations you have, or are going to support this giving season, regardless of your geography. On my list personally for the world of podcasting are Transom and the Podcasting, Seriously Awards Fund.
I’m still building out my overall donations list, but this year I’m definitely going to do more to support independent journalism. You can always check out the Calls-to-Action section on our website to learn about different organizations you can give to.
Speaking of the giving spirit, Sounds Like Impact is so closed to 600 newsletter readers! Please click share below :-) or consider giving a gift subscription!
