As regular listeners know, the format of the Renoites podcast is generally long form interviews lasting about an hour. I really like this format because it lets me get into more substantive discussions and learn a lot. This episode is a little different, and is the first of 5 bonus episodes recorded at Northern Nevada Pride on 7/23/22 in Reno, Nevada.
At the festival, I set up a mobile recording studio with big comfy chairs and invited friends, former guests, folks from various nonprofits, and even a couple passersby to sit down and record quick interviews to share what they do and the things that matter to them.
Each of these five bonus episodes will contain a handful of mini interviews. I'm very grateful to everyone who took some time to sit down and chat at the festival and am excited to share these conversations with you.
Bonus Episode 1 features:
Wendy Colborne from the Northern Nevada Central Labor Council. The first episode of next season will be all about labor organization and the upcoming Labor Fest at Idlewild Park on Labor Day.
Rebecca Goff from the Nevada Humane Society discussing causes of the increase in surrendered pets at the Humane Society's no-kill shelter, and how you can adopt a pet.
Richard Boersig from the Crisis Support Services of Nevada about the brand new 988 number for mental health crises and how new resources will allow the organization to help more people and prevent more suicide and self-harm.
Sam Olson from The Olson Group at RE/MAX Gold in Midtown. The Olson Group was the only real estate sponsor of Northern Nevada Pride and Sam talks about his office's commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Thank you so much for listening! This is the first of 5 bonus episodes. I hope you enjoy this change of pace and different format. Let me know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org
