MikeyPod

Known for finding and showcasing talented, yet to be discovered artists and creators, Michael Harren’s podcast, MikeyPod, takes the listener on inspiring journeys of true—and often remarkable—stories of the courage, passion, and struggles many have faced while bringing their visions to life. In production since 2005, MikeyPod invites you to pour a warm drink, grab a notebook (in case inspiration strikes!), curl up with your favorite blanket or four- legged family member, and prepare to be moved by conversations about how artists use their creativity to quite literally change the world.
