Why Local with Ryan Sullivan of The BopCast Podcast


Aug 2 2021 • 17 mins

How connected locally are you? We often hear of a podcast with a National or International focus, but today’s guest Ryan Sullivan shares with us how he focused on local and how telling the stories of local artists has been a unique project for him. As a podcast, we record audio, share it, and move on typically. Still, one special episode he recorded became a living legacy of the personality of a guest who passed away after being on the podcast.   It’s not just about the audio; it's about legacy, and this will be a story you won’t want to miss.
