The Quinn Spinn: A Discussion About Life, Relationships, and Podcasting with Kaelyn Warne

Kaelyn Warne is a Ph.D student and the host of Seasoned & STEAMed, a research-based podcast about art, science, history, and wellness, delivered in a fun, quirky, and educational way. We connected with Kaelyn as an ambitious fellow podcaster at Helping Our Music Evolve (H.O.M.E.), and have had the opportunity to watch, as she has launched her new podcast from scratch.

One day, we were in the studio, taking her through the setup process as she prepared to record her first episodes. We sat down to test out the microphones and, before we knew it, we had an unexpected episode of The Quinn Spinn on our hands!

During this episode, we discuss what it’s like to build a platform like ours from scratch, and the ways in which our passions dictate our free time and impact our relationships — familial, romantic, and otherwise. This is a can’t-miss conversation for anybody with a creative pursuit!
