On Saturday, August 14th, 2021, we recorded our very first live episode of Kankakee Podcast at Heroes, Hogs, & Hot Rods in Manteno, IL. Considering this was the first time I had ever done something like this, I think it went well! If you were one of the people that attended, thank you fro coming! Heroes, Hogs, & Hot Rods is an event put on by the non-profit organization, Project Headspace & Timing, which assists veterans with finding the mental health services they need in Kankakee County. You may already know this since the group’s founder, Eric Peterson, was the guest on the first episode of Kankakee Podcast. Not only does this live episode include the return of Eric, but it also contains conversations with Mike Totten, a veteran who has benefited from Project Headspace & Timing’s services, and Kelly Frey, president of Buddy Check 22.
Special thanks to our sponsors for helping make this live episode happen!
