Carleena Angwin has hosted 36 episodes.
Carleena Angwin is a public health professional, writer, and host of The Carleena Show podcast, based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Born and raised in upstate New York, Carleena served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Panama, taught English at a public university in Mexico, trained juvenile court advocates in Georgia, and currently works at a health department in Tennessee.
In 2017, Carleena graduated with an MFA in Nonfiction from Goucher College. During her time in grad school, Carleena interviewed a Marine combat veteran of the Iraq War for nearly two years as research for a narrative nonfiction book. Enjoying the conversational aspect of the interviews and the give and take of ideas expressed, Carleena pivoted from writing a book to interviewing guests with fascinating stories. The Carleena Show podcast was launched in 2018 and nearly 40 guests from diverse economic, social, political, and geographic backgrounds have come on the show.
The Carleena Show has taken a sabbatical due to the pandemic, but we hope to resume normal production soon.
