Telling Our Stories: Adoptee Podcaster Panel
Pre-registration required: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMqdu-qrDkqGtOuFWyaSXAuqybMcwGyQUX2.
Podcasts are the best way today to directly hear from a multitude of adoptee voices and opinions. Join us for a discussion with the hosts of three groundbreaking adoptee-led podcasts, as they talk about what drives them to spend hours each week on these labors of love. Why did they start and how has their show evolved? What were the most memorable moments? What have they learned about themselves?
This event will be a "fishbowl"-style discussion in order to allow it to be open to the public while remaining adoptee-focused. We invite and welcome adoptees, parents, friends, and all interested parties to view, while only questions from adoptees will be taken during the Q&A.
Who: Open to everyone
When: Tuesday, Oct 13, 6 pm - 7:30 pm ET
RSVP: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMqdu-qrDkqGtOuFWyaSXAuqybMcwGyQUX2. You will be emailed access details upon registration. Questions? contact Bianca, firstname.lastname@example.org
