Everyone has a story worth sharing. It’s in those stories where we discover songs — everything from the rallying cries we sing to pump us up to the celebratory music that makes us dance after a win. But what about the in-between of liminal space?

STARTING WITH A SONG explores how people "sing" and find joy in their circumstances; how they persevere between the no longer and not yet.

As a child of the 80s raised in an analog age where mixtapes were the ultimate form of communication, I'll also be talking about literal songs that time travel back to our favorite times and places.

Bree-child ,

I have an original Mixed tape!

Great job “Mandy!” I get to call you that because of near death experiences, cheerleading, show choir, Heritage Drama, and a host of other meteorites.

This is amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to your podcast!
