On this episode, Karen talks with the writer, storyteller, and voice of the many with Our Southern Souls, Lynn Oldshue. Lynn has turned her passion for writing, art, and storytelling into a life of publishing and investigative journalism. After starting her magazine, The Southern Rambler, to write about her love of local arts and artists, she found her real writing purpose and her big “why, ” sharing everyday people’s hidden stories. After 1000’s of interviews and building 31 thousand followers on her Our Southern Souls Facebook page, this journey has led her to write hard hitting investigative articles for print media like The Lagniappe, and now you can hear her on Alabama Public Radio. Lynn will give us some tips on the steps she is taking to keep doing what she loves to do, use her voice to share the stories of diversity and the extraordinary lives of people from all over the South.
