The Carleena Show podcast celebrates 5.5 months today, which means it's time for another installment of BEHIND THE SCENES.
In this episode, I answer listener questions, recap episodes 5-13, share how I met each guest and what broader societal questions their episode posed. I talk about my podcasting process, and mention how a mentor from Goucher College's MFA Nonfiction program helped shape my thinking.

When Shannon Gilmore was 15 years old, a tangle of arteries burst inside her skull and she was put in a medically induced coma for 3.5 weeks. Ten years after her brain bleed, she completed an MFA in Nonfiction and a thesis manuscript that is the beginning of her memoir. In our conversation today, we talk about the journey of who Shannon was before her brain trauma, who she was in the initial recovery, and who she is now.
"I think everybody has a story that matters, but you have to figure out how and why it matters. My professor in college made me feel that my story mattered and needed to be told in its truth." - Shannon Gilmore
