The inspiring, moving, and belly-laugh-inducing stories shared on The She Said Project stage get a second life in The She Said Project Podcast. And right now, hosts Kerry Rossow and Jenette Jurczyk are cooking up a new batch of interviews for season 5 of the podcast.
With interviews from some of our favorite on-stage guests, this season of the podcast will dive deeper into the stories of the women who inspire us to be brave and vulnerable.
Building Community Through Storytelling
The She Said Project Podcast is an extension of our live shows and shares our goal of amplifying the voices and experiences of everyday women.
While The She Said Stage gives women the platform to share their stories live for an audience, the podcast lets us peek behind the scenes into who these women are and what it’s like to brave the microphone.
Highlights of Season 5
We’re excited that, for the first time, The She Said Project Podcast will be featuring women in St. Louis and Peoria as well as Champaign and Bloomington.
Here are a few interviews to look out for:
Julie A. Pryde
Julie A. Pryde, and her forbidden spider monkey story, joined us live in the studio in Champaign, IL where she is the head of the county public health department. Julie’s an accomplished researcher, writer, and speaker, with a long list of professional accomplishments. She is known for being a strong voice in the community, an advocate for public health, and someone who often “tells it like it is.”
But Julie’s story is about much more than her career success. Julie injects humor into the most challenging experiences and takes us on a ride through her incredible coming-of-age story.
Listen as Julie talks to us about how she prepared her story for an audience and what it was like to speak on The She Said Stage.
Calling in from Peoria, Nikki Romain talks to us about finding her voice on stage after surviving a traumatic experience. Nikki’s story highlights the power of speaking up. In fact, she even broke chains and removed her muzzle on The She Said Stage to illustrate the power of telling your story.
Listen to Nikki talk about finding her own healing in theater and how she works to bring similar opportunities to others. Her nonprofit ArtINC is a youth empowerment program that brings art and culture to young people.
