Podcasting has a way of bringing together like-minded people and creating tight knit communities. While beneficial in a lot of ways, that feeling of connectedness can do incredible things for people’s mental health. Donald Dunn is using his platform to support veterans in their civilian life after service, including sharing how podcasting can be the first step in healing from trauma. This week, episode 148 of Listeners to Leads is about the benefits of podcasting for mental wellness!

Donald Dunn is the CEO of Heroes Voices Media Foundation, an author, and 20 year military veteran. Heroes Voices Media Foundation works to empower and elevate the voices of heroes – veterans and their families – through the transformative power of storytelling, music, and the arts. Their commitment is to be a beacon of hope and inspiration, nurturing a world where every hero's story is celebrated, and where the healing potential of the arts is accessible to all who have served our nation and communities. Donald’s podcast, Spirits and Stories with Donald Dunn highlights the struggles and the successes of the veteran community.

In this episode of Listeners to Leads, Donald Dunn is sharing the importance of veterans finding a community to help begin healing from trauma and actionable steps you can take right now to utilize podcasting as a way to share your story and build that community.

Donald and I also chat about the following:

  • Finding a new direction with your podcast over time.
  • The challenges of rebranding a podcast that has changed over time.
  • Podcasting as an outlet and means of connecting people, especially veterans.
  • How honesty and vulnerability in podcasting can be the first step to healing trauma.
