"Celebrating the connections we make through the people we meet."

The Rough Draft Diaries with Haley Taylor is an ongoing, short form radio podcast that explores the social and cultural fabric of the local community, while uncovering personal stories and experiences that resonate globally.

At the end of each episode, Haley asks her guest to suggest three different possibilities for a story, from which one is chosen. The program then unfolds in serial form, as each step in the journey is connected to what came before.
