NEW EPISODE 017: Power Your Story with Aliyah Rich, a podcaster you should know (and my student)
Aliyah Rich is one of the most thoughtful podcast producers I’ve ever met, and she just happens to be one of my high school students in a mentoring program I created called Power Your Story. In this episode she gives her take on gun violence and mental illness, education and youth, and supporting your community.
Subscribe to Season 3 of Power Your Story Podcast! And check out Aliyah’s past season episodes:
Special shout out to DJ Sparkz (another one of my mentees) for lending his music to Power Your Story — you hear it in the transitions between Aliyah’s segments in this episode.

Power Your Story Podcast
(This is what my talk is about.)
Seems like everyone’s starting their own podcast these days. So how do YOU stand out in a sea of podcasts? How much time will it really take? What is going to keep you going when it gets tough? And how do you know if it’s any GOOD… let’s not even get started on impostor syndrome!!!
Here’s a secret…
There is NO one-size-fits-all tutorial that is sufficient. Let me help.
I want to help you develop and communicate YOUR STORY — the passion behind the podcast, the thing that makes your show unique and valuable to your listeners, and the secret ingredients that will help you make your podcast the envy of everyone else.
