This episode is all about Germantown, and how in love residents are with the neighborhood.

There's beauty in redefining yourself, or taking a leap of faith in who you want to be. The world was immersed in deep reflection [alt: We found ourselves immersed in deep reflection] as people started new careers, initiatives or hobbies. They realized that if there was ever a time to go after what you want, it was now.

This episode sheds light on the power we all have to be who we want to be.

I Am is a collection of stories about the transitional lives in Germantown.

The Other Essential

The Other Essential

Non-traditional workers experienced a different pandemic than most. Especially artists. The creation process changed for them, and government funding for the arts dried out overnight. Their work wasn’t viewed as a necessity; essential.

This episode is dedicated to Germantown artists; from how the pandemic affected them to how they fell in love with their craft.

The Other Essential is a collection of local artists' stories during a weird time to create.

Where the Heart Is

Where the Heart Is

We spent more time than usual in the four walls we call home this past year. People were laid off or confined  to work from home. The amount of time we spent made us rethink home, whether it suited us or hindered us.

This episode is about the idea of home, and the many perspectives Germantown residents share about it.

Where the Heart Is is a collection of stories about where and what home is.
