… a show about what we hope will happen, and what does.
It’s a podcast that’s in production. It will be released in the fall of 2023.
A Year from Now is a time-traveling podcast that takes a snapshot of someone at the beginning of a journey, then jumps ahead one year to see how it all turned out.
Each episode pairs similar problems with dissimilar people. Topics like leaving the Morman church, traumatic brain injury survivors, and learning to live with disabilities caused by gun violence, accidents, or medical mysteries.
Promo for Season One
Will a life sentence get overturned? Will a newly elected official get what they said they would done? A tour in Syria with the US military, going of meds for bi-polar disorder, training to be a pro-wrestler! We’ll also cover fun stories like a failed YouTube musician’s last attempts at getting an audience, an unorthodox get-of-the-vote campaign, and a 32-hour road trip to meet a possible girlfriend.
As I write this it’s been over a year and a half from when I started interviewing people. Should I change the name to ‘A year (and a half) from Now…’ I’ll be editing and putting the show together this summer (2022) and so far the follow ups have been heart breaking, beautiful, and surprising.
