I am really excited to announce that Donor Diaries is launching June 1, a week from today! I have learned a ton about podcasts in the past few months, and feel like I have barely scratched the surface of what is left to learn, but I am having fun doing it! I feel great about the first 2 episodes which will launch together on Apple Podcasts. When it launches, I will post a link here to that you can find it and tune in. The more people we can get to listen in the first 2 days, the better. If a lot of people listen, then the podcast will be more likely to come up as a suggested podcast to listen to. If you are able to tune in right away, I would appreciate it! It will help get the conversation of living donation to a much broader audience, which in theory, saves lives!
Season 1 of DD will consist of 12 episodes and covers a variety of compelling living donor stories, and interesting interviews from various experts in the Transplant field. We are also following the story of Johnna, a woman who is just beginning her transplant journey. We will watch her journey unfold as she finds a living donor, and has a kidney transplant!
Before we launch, I want to give a huge shout out to my amazing producers Rob and Geoff Lee (my husband and BIL). They have been just so incredibly supportive and helpful to me through this process, and I don’t know what I would do had they not volunteered to jump in with both feet. This project brings up some vulnerability, and these guys have just been my rocks. I really hope they don’t get sick of my demands! I love you Rob and Geoff, thank you for being so available to me, and for all of your hard work. I am incredibly appreciative of all you do for me, and love working with you both so much! It’s been an unexpected joy that this has become a family effort.
