Why did you start this podcast and what do you love about it?
I started podcasting as a pandemic therapy project when my regular work dried up and my neighborhood became an “accidental island”…when our primary bridge connection closed for 3 years.

All Ways West Seattle is hyper-local, targeted to a community of about 80k.
Field to Fork is also regional but targets Pacific Northwest foodies aged 20-60.
What’s the number 1 thing listeners love about your podcast?
Discovery of delightful things in their own backyard.

Both podcasts are supported by sponsorship partners.
What advice would you give a new podcaster?
