Podcast LAUNCH Announcement

Podcast Episode Art (6)

I am thrilled to announce the launch of our Podcast—Helping History Happen. For someone who loves both events and history, this is an exciting time! I loved dressing up in period costumes as a child, and that inner-child in me is still just as exhilarated as I launch this new endeavor.

DSCN1139We’ll release two episodes per week. During each episode, I will be chatting with a history expert or enthusiast to bring you inspiration, tips, planning ideas and practical advice on running a successful historical event. It is my goal to provide both solid techniques and creative inspiration. My guests will talk about people they admire from history and why. We’ll discuss actual live events along with their successes and frustrations. Think of this podcast as filling in the gap of information for history professionals who are often taxed with the responsibility of planning events.

I have seen so many people in this industry, who have their heart in the right spot but need help making everything come together when planning events. This is why Helping History Happen came to be; I am doing this for all of you wonderful people who are making history happen one event at a time. We can learn so much from history and apply these lessons to our lives to live a better more fulfilled life.

I encourage and ask for your feedback. I would love to know what you find valuable or hear about any specific topics where you need help. If you find this podcast useful, please Subscribe, Rate & Review.
