The I Love Memphis Podcast June 2016 edition is live! This month, our guest is the founder and director of Volunteer Odyssey, Dr. Sarah Petschonek. She talks to us about Memphis and tells me and Kevin exactly where we should volunteer based on our interests – it’s truly impressive.

VolunCheers_Child Advocacy

From the December 2015 Voluncheers event, held at Memphis Child Advocacy Center. I had the chance to attend and enjoyed some local beer and snacks, meet some fellow volunteers, took a tour of the facility, and helped the CAC address envelopes for holiday cards to donors.

We couldn’t do this alone. Here are some lovely folks we’d like to thank. 

– Our guest, Sarah, for taking the time to talk with us
– Daniel Lynn from Music + Arts Studio, where we record the I Love Memphis podcast
– Rick Trotter, announcer for the Memphis Grizzlies, for generously offering his amazing voice work
– Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau (my employer) for supporting the I Love Memphis blog and podcast
– Hope Clayburn, for making soulful funky tunes like “Love is on the Way”, which we sample on the podcast, and also for being our guest

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
