BYOP (Bring Your Own Podcast)

This month, Alex’s BYOP was the Spotify Original podcast, You Heard Me Write!

Treat your ears to 30 original pieces of prose, music, and sound design never heard before. This podcast features artists collaborating on a multi-media group project without having any knowledge about the identities of their counterparts. Only after the project’s completion are the artists introduced to one another in a Salon-style roundtable discussion as they explore the roles of creativity, anonymity, and the power of connection between people from different walks of life.

Interview with Jeffrey Marsh of LGBTQ&A

LGBTQ&A was created in 2016 in order to document modern LGBTQ+ history — to get beyond transition and coming out stories, to get to know each person, their accomplishments, their failures, and how they got to where they are today. ​Hosted by writer and podcast producer Jeffrey Masters, each episode is a 30-minute interview full of insight, humor, and wisdom.

Jeffrey shared so many wonderful tidbits about his experience with producing and hosting a podcast, as well as offered some listening recommendations:
