Rural Assembly launches podcast "Everywhere Radio"

The Rural Assembly’s new podcast “Everywhere Radio,” is here!

Hosted by Whitney Kimball Coe, Everywhere Radio will feature rural leaders and allies spotlighting the good, scrappy, and joyful ways rural people are building a more inclusive nation. 

“I so often find myself in conversations with really interesting and wonderful people who care deeply about Rural America and building a nation of us and ours. Everywhere Radio is a platform to share some of those encounters and to amplify voices we need to hear right now,” said Kimball Coe, director of The Rural Assembly. 

New episodes of the podcast will be released every other Thursday.

For the inaugural episode of Everywhere Radio, Whitney interviews Wendy Feliz, the Founding Director of the Center for Inclusion and Belonging at the American Immigration Council in Washington, D.C.

Whitney and Wendy talk about building common purpose between new immigrant communities and long-time rural residents, the prospects for progress on national immigration policy, the importance of welcoming and inclusion, and much more.

Everywhere Radio is available on various podcast platforms, including Spotify. The show is coming soon to Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts.
