Coffee with COVID: a new podcast

Hear stories from my global network of freelancers, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and others connected with the outdoor adventure and travel industry. It's one part coffee and one part COVID - two things that are part of our daily lives.

episode #1: Host Leslie Kehmeier

Hi - my name is Leslie Kehmeier I’m not a podcaster, I’m freelance outdoor adventure and travel photographer. I’m best known for my constant travels both near and far to tell stories about the outdoors. I spend a lot of my time riding bicycles, drinking coffee and eating delicious food. 

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic I find myself, along with the rest of us, in a time of uncertainty. As a freelancer, this is a natural part of my life. Now, on March 24, 2020, it seems a little scarier than normal. Like many people in the world, I’m staying put in my home community, shifting gears from what my original plans were to what can I be doing? Actually, a better way of thinking about it has been "how can I be helping?"

My work as a photographer and storyteller is most often done with a camera or words. So when I came up with the idea to interview my community, I realized I should tell this story with different tools. Why not a podcast?!

Without too many more words, I'd like to share the first episode. It's an introduction and interview with me. I hope you enjoy. Stay tuned each day as I hope to bring other stories from my network around the world. Thanks for listening!
