About The I’m From Driftwood Podcast
I’m From Driftwood has been collecting and sharing first-person LGBTQ+ Video Stories for over 11 years now and recently passed 25 million views on its YouTube channel. Now, I’m From Driftwood is launching a new program, giving lovers of storytelling, the LGBTQ+ community, and podcasts a reason to celebrate. The podcast’s first season will consist of 12 episodes, each with its own theme. Topics range from childhood crushes, immigration, and bi-inclusion, to substance abuse, gender identity, and racism within the LGBTQ+ community. Each episode will feature the audio clips from I’m From Driftwood stories, and will then be discussed by the two podcast hosts.
The Podcast will be produced by Anddy Egan-Thrope and hosted by Alex Berg and Phil aka Corinne. Anddy is a Made in NY Fellow, the producer of the podcast “Queers From the Crypt”, and creator, producer, and host of “Fruit Basket”, a podcast about queer comedy. Alex, a “a loud and proud bisexual femme” is a journalist covering national news, women’s issues, and LGBTQ culture. Phil is the creator, producer, and host of the podcast “Transition of Style” whose mission is to “help gender non-conforming people bring forth their most authentic, confident and true selves by providing professional styling.”
