VBR #15: 'It's Hard For Helpers', with guest Sheridan Allen

Just when I think the podcast is becoming easier to produce on a weekly basis, it isn't. In actuality, this episode was very easy to produce. It has the shortest run time, has one of the best speakers I've interviewed to date, and took almost no time to edit. Still, between bachelor parties and hauling a washer and dryer out of a dead woman's home and into mine, I had little for time or energy to get this one done on time.

Like I said in my conversation with Ian Baldwin a few weeks ago, keep uploading. Being a day late won't discourage me from keeping on with this thing, tough as it may be some weeks.

This was a great episode. It was easy to edit, because there was nothing to edit out. It was all great conversation with a passionate and positive force in our scene. Punk Talks is a great organization that has done good that I can actually see. Despite their name, they are more than just talk. They really do make a difference.

Episode Summary:

Sheridan Allen runs Punk Talks, an organization that advocates for better mental health in the music industry. We discuss Sheridan's decision to become a social worker for a living and using her passion to better the music scene she so desperately wanted to be a part of.
