In collaboration with Blakeford Senior Life, Ben Oddo is releasing a podcast series this Thursday, September 2, titled Me and All My Friends. Each episode features an interview and journalistic photos with a Blakeford resident giving you a glimpse into their past and present in an entertaining and restorative way. With influential Nashville guests with careers at VUMC and other prominent institutions, the podcast also shares the history of Nashville and its people through captivating stories.
Nashville comedian and podcast host Ben Oddo was inspired to tell the stories of elders in the community from a young age after regularly volunteering at a senior living community in high school. Oddo's hope for the podcast is that it will transcend generations while treating interviewees with the vibrancy, humor, and dignity they deserve.
From personal experience, the episodes are sure to make you laugh out loud.
