Lauren ‘Lern’ Elwell is a radio personality and a self-proclaimed ethnographer who lives for interpersonal communication. Being on the radio is a treat for the masses but being invited into an intimate studio space, Lern gets to devour the history and stories of her guests – one person at a time. This is a treat for HER and you fine people get the pleasure of eavesdropping in on that conversation with topics ranging to all of the human corners of a life well lived.

Ep. 30 / Favazz

Favazz and Lern have worked together since 2008 at KSHE 95. At the start of 2020, they swapped dayparts – Favazz went to morning drive, while Lern went to afternoons. In this episode, you go deep into their dynamics in the friendship. Old times are discussed including some rock star encounters, and how Favazz was the first jock at KSHE to allow Lern inside the studio to meet one of her faves of all time. Their friendship is fun and their career highlights together are even more enjoyable. Have fun listening to these two pals ‘tell all’ in the hour they allotted. This episode pairs well with getting your ears pierced a couple more times and then telling your enemies to ‘Go F*ck Themselves.’

Ep. 29 / Kate Bethel

Supporting local businesses has never been more important – especially the ones that are dear to your heart! One of the many local loves in Lern’s life is MAVEN in Maplewood, MO. This shop has locally made soaps, candles, face mists, shampoo, lotions and so much more. And it was all created from the genuine interest Kate Bethel had when her previous career wasn’t necessarily sparking her in the ways she would have hoped. Kate’s story is a beautiful one – some would call it ‘The American Dream’. Hopefully during this episode you will be equally inspired to shop local more often and maybe even start working on your own ideas to make something that everyone can enjoy, too.

Ep. 28 / Donny Fandango The Sequel

We couldn’t fit everything into just one episode when it comes to Donny Fandango and rightfully so. This is ‘the meat’ of his career – interview highlights! What is it like being in a press tent at Lollapalooza? What makes Trent Reznor laugh? What do you do when you see Maynard James Keenan with boobs? All of these very important questions are answered in this episode. Enjoy for a second helping – Donny Fandango!
