My top 5 Storytelling Podcasts

NPR Storycorps

Listen to this if you want to cry... but usually in an uplifting way!
Storycorps is the largest audio compilation in the Library of Congress, recording stories from people all over the United States.

What I love most about it: How incredible the act of interviewing someone can be for a relationship.


Invisibilia is co-hosted by 3 women who interview and explore ideas and concepts that we can't see. Things that are intangible.
What I love most about it: They explore things from many different angles AND they are topics I haven't fully heard about before.

TED Radiohour

Most of you have probably heard of TED talks. This podcast is a compilation of different speakers presentations blended with further interview conversations on their topic. They usually interview 3 different people who are all relating to a central topic.

What I love most about it: The fact that they dig deeper into the topics that are spoken on the TED stage to give you more background and information than just watching the video.


This podcast is one of my absolute favorites. Even though they don't focus on any topic in particular, they explore interesting ideas with open minds and a sense of true discovery.

What I love most about it: The sound effects they use throughout the podcast are like any other - they make it an experience and immerse you into the story in a beautiful and intriguing way!

Modern Love

Another NPR Podcast, Modern Love is a beautiful mix of storytelling, theatre, and writing. Actors present essays written about love that were submitted to the NY Times, representing real people who live among us.

What I love most about it: It provides a larger perspective of what love is like - what it can do, what it  means, and what it looks like.


Appreciating the Outdoors // Asheville Outdoor Wedding Videography

Upon starting Evergreen Era Films, one of my main goals has been to share more of me with more of you; to not only capture and share other people's stories but to be open and welcoming and share my very own story as well.

I know this will be difficult for me. I'm not a very talkative person. I spend most of my conversations asking people questions and enjoying listening than talking about myself. I frequently don't share something personal unless specifically asked. It isn't comfortable at first, it's hard, and vulnerable, but I have learned there is such beauty in being vulnerable. Those are the moments where people make strong connections, where they relate and provide support and encouragement. So here I am, stepping out on a limb and doing exactly what I'm always asking my clients to do; being open, honest and vulnerable for whomever is listening...

To start out, I hope to begin sharing things that motivate me, inspire me, challenge me, and make me smile. I have almost stopped enjoying social media these days, and I'm sure many of you feel the same. So much unregulated opinion. So much negativity. So much disconnect. I have felt in need of something fulfilling and uplifting, so I decided to create it myself.

On this blog I want to share things that will educate, encourage, and inspire you (as they did for me) each week.

To start out, in honor of the beautiful trees that inspired this very business, I encourage you to listen to this incredibly intriguing podcast by the talented Radiolab. Take some time today during break, this afternoon during your walk, or during your morning coffee and have a listen.

There is a whole world underneath your feet that has recently been discovered.
