“Journeys” are conversations that reveal the insight and inspiration that can only be found on the winding path of life experience. Co-hosted by Rebecca Rothstein, Kim Garner and Lee Ann Daly, three down to earth women, each accomplished “insiders” in their respective industries.
We count ourselves lucky to enjoy lively friendship with fascinating individuals at the vanguard of art, music, sports, business, pop culture, film, TV, the theater, technology, fashion and the consciousness community.
Join us in conversation with them as we journey deep into their story and their process—looking at the good stuff as well as the challenges that shaped their paths.
Matt is a passionate journalist who loves nothing more than good reporting, music and comedy – all ingredients of a great radio story. He’s a reporter and producer at KUNC in Colorado, where he covers news stories on air and at kunc.org. He’s also reported for KPCC and KCRW in Los Angeles. As NPR’s National Desk intern in Culver City during the summer of 2015, he produced one of the first episodes of Embedded, the NPR podcast hosted by Kelly McEvers where reporters take a story from the headlines and “go deep.”
At Indiana University, he graduated with degrees in Journalism and Spanish. He also executive produced the weekly podcast, American Student Radio, which still broadcasts every Sunday on WIUX 99.1 FM Pure Student Radio, winner of the IBS college award for “Best Large College/University Station.” Matt is the founder and former president of IU’s student chapter of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association. He also co-managed and played in Full Frontal Comedy, IU’s longest-running improv troupe.
Favorite reporting memories include jumping on the back of a stranger’s motorcycle in Uganda, publishing an article that led to the revision of IU’s preferred name policy for transgender students, and being told by his school’s president, “I don’t have time for you,” six times in a row at an IU football game.
Matt is a firm believer that everybody has an important story to tell.
This summer I’m doing 49 sets of stand up comedy. One for each victim of the shooting last weekend at Pulse in Orlando. Every time I get on stage, I will read a name of one of the victims and donate $1 to the Pulse Victims Fund run by Equality Florida via Gofundme.com
I love my LGBTTQQIAAP community. We have all have stories and voices and ways to make the world a better place. I don’t have much money, but I’m doing what I can in my new home to help. Please pledge to donate 1 dollar per set with me!
From American Student Radio, a story about the power of the little things we all hang on to. In it, Hannah Fleace, a student at Indiana University, orders a hair bow from Etsy in honor of her boyfriend Joe, who serves in the army. But the day Hannah gets the package in the mail, she discovers someone else’s bow in the box. The small mailing mix up proceeds to turn Hannah’s world upside down.
