With this episode we introduce a new series called Strings. It’s all about how issues and individuals string our communities together in surprising ways. Podcast producers Kevin Beasely and Ann Powers take the show on the road starting out in U.S. District Court and sitting down with Judge John V. Acosta’s, which leads them to a ridealong with a Trimet bus operator and ultimately lands them in a psychologist’s office speaking with Dr. Elisa Rudd.
So, how are these three unique professionals strung together? From the importance of being heard, to unlikely safe spaces for those in need, and introducing mental health issues into everyday narratives - listen and find out how these connect to each other.
We’d love to hear your thoughts as well. Please submit your comments and suggestions on other strings you know of or how we can make this series the best it can be.
