Season 1 Finale | Being an Intentional Ally with Travis Tench & Catherine Porth

Listen to Episode 20

It’s Our Final Episode of Season 1!

Thank you so much for tuning in to the first season of the She Speaks Podcast. Throughout this season, we have been commemorating the journeys we have all been on over the last 2+ years by listening to interviews from women collected during the pandemic and checking in with them now. We’ve also brought in other leaders in our community to talk about topics like imposter syndrome and embracing a new path.

One point of view we wanted to make sure we captured in this First Season is from an ally. While listening to these interviews you may not know it, but Travis Tench has been with us throughout this first season as our producer, sound mixer, and theme music composer. Every “Now” episode was recorded with Travis in the room and he remastered every interview collected for the “Then” episodes.

As an organization dedicated to women, Let Her Speak has been very fortunate to have many male allies supporting our organization. If you have attended any of our in-person events recently, you may recognize Travis as the quiet guy in the corner running sound and selecting impeccable playlists in-between speakers. He is without a doubt one of the greatest ally supporters of our work.

Travis is the owner of Oak Hill Audio, the frontman and creator of the band Tinca Tinca, and an active member of the music community in Knoxville. Considering Travis has had the opportunity to be in the room where these conversations were happening, we wanted to bring him in to get his perspective on allyship, equality, and intentional community building.

Listen in as Catherine and Travis talk about his reflections on the stories shared throughout this season, his work in creating communities that support all artists, and his thoughts on the impact allies can have in building better opportunities for everyone.

We also encourage you to share this season with the allies in your life. After all, it’s through stories that we’re able to gain new perspectives and empathize with those who have walked a much different path than us.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. We can’t wait to continue these conversations in Season 2!
