Well hello there.
When Richard Brooke and I decided to do the Hygge podcast residency we have no idea we’d end up with 37 unique and awesome submissions. The selection process was difficult but in the end we have a group of 6, yes 6 (we upped it from 4 because there was too many good ones to choose from) podcasts that are either already doing great things or have the potential to educate, entertain and grow beyond just Charlotte. We’re pumped!
Without further ado I present the first class of 2017 podcast residency winners and their show ideas.
1stgens is about first-generation Americans and filling in the blanks on both sides of the hyphen. Meet co-hosts Perrine and Skye’s experiences as Liberian-Americans, while showing parallels and telling the stories of other diverse 1stgens. 1stgens hopes to educate, unify and prove that being American is not always so black and white. The first episode of 1stgens is available here!
Date Night with Jake & Page. Each month, Jake and Page allow you to be the third wheel on a double-date with a prominent Charlotte couple. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want them to invite you next time.

The Charlotte Podcast is hosted by Miller Yoho and John Short. It exists because lots of interesting things happen in Charlotte. They can be great things everyone is proud of. They can also be unsavory, disappointing, or missed opportunities. We want to understand all of these things and we think you do too. You can listen to the last years worth of episodes here.
STEMinism with host Alyssa Sharpe will be a podcast to help instill confidence and interest in STEM for women, it will be relevant to anyone listening. It’s fun, it’s messy, it’s science!
