Lauren ‘Lern’ Elwell is a radio personality and a self-proclaimed ethnographer who lives for interpersonal communication. Being on the radio is a treat for the masses but being invited into an intimate studio space, Lern gets to devour the history and stories of her guests – one person at a time. This is a treat for HER and you fine people get the pleasure of eavesdropping in on that conversation with topics ranging to all of the human corners of a life well lived.
Ep. 33 / ONE YEAR DARK
After almost an entire 'year dark', myself, I decided to jump back into the podcast world with this interview! Aaron David Roberts is a producer, director, writer and musician. After the pandemic began, he and his partner, Andrew Barrack jumped into the world of independent concert venues to help share their story with the closed down world, through their upcoming docuseries, 'One Year Dark'.
In this quick interview, I ask about how his brain went to the dark stages and when we can expect the release. We also dive into what Taylor Hawkins had to do with all of this.
Ep. 32 / Oh Hello, Again...
Well, well, well... look who it is... your ol' pal... the voice you haven't heard in the podcasting realm since December 2020... yes, you may think that I have been a major slacker but please allow me to explain.
Welcome to my 'wasted time free thoughts'
Disclaimer: There is no agenda here. I had some extra time and a recorder in front of me... so I hit 'record' and let my brain whizz out. Enjoy.
Ep. 31 / Lern Holiday Q&A Special
For this final episode of 2020, Lern takes to the mean streets of SOCIAL MEDIA to gather questions from her audience. In maybe the most narcissistic episode yet, Lern answers those questions with honesty, curse words and last-week-of-work efforts! Enjoy this very random episode and let's hope to Lemmy that she will be able to have guests come 2021... "Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animals!" :) xo
Ep. 30 / Favazz
Favazz and Lern have worked together since 2008 at KSHE 95. At the start of 2020, they swapped dayparts – Favazz went to morning drive, while Lern went to afternoons. In this episode, you go deep into their dynamics in the friendship. Old times are discussed including some rock star encounters, and how Favazz was the first jock at KSHE to allow Lern inside the studio to meet one of her faves of all time. Their friendship is fun and their career highlights together are even more enjoyable. Have fun listening to these two pals ‘tell all’ in the hour they allotted. This episode pairs well with getting your ears pierced a couple more times and then telling your enemies to ‘Go F*ck Themselves.’
Ep. 29 / Kate Bethel
Supporting local businesses has never been more important – especially the ones that are dear to your heart! One of the many local loves in Lern’s life is MAVEN in Maplewood, MO. This shop has locally made soaps, candles, face mists, shampoo, lotions and so much more. And it was all created from the genuine interest Kate Bethel had when her previous career wasn’t necessarily sparking her in the ways she would have hoped. Kate’s story is a beautiful one – some would call it ‘The American Dream’. Hopefully during this episode you will be equally inspired to shop local more often and maybe even start working on your own ideas to make something that everyone can enjoy, too.

Ep. 28 / Donny Fandango The Sequel
We couldn’t fit everything into just one episode when it comes to Donny Fandango and rightfully so. This is ‘the meat’ of his career – interview highlights! What is it like being in a press tent at Lollapalooza? What makes Trent Reznor laugh? What do you do when you see Maynard James Keenan with boobs? All of these very important questions are answered in this episode. Enjoy for a second helping – Donny Fandango!
Love love love Lern!
Love your interviews, keep ‘em coming!
Lern is a a great interviewer. She is always so positive and upbeat. She still has the best laugh STL. Never change!!
