INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Kendall Antron has made it his mission to tell the stories of the people and places that set his hometown and state apart from others. His “Made in Indy” podcast show invites guests who are artists, entrepreneurs and creators to share their experiences as Hoosiers.
Antron said creating the platform has impacted how he feels about the place he calls home.
“It really makes me have civic pride,” he said. “I think Indiana is one of those places that not a lot of people, if you haven’t been here, you really don’t know what the city or state is about. We have so many amazing individuals that are doing great things from entertainment, to podcasting, to law to just telling the stories of people really means a lot to me because I’m a storyteller.”
Antron says, after getting his college degree at Howard University in Washington D.C., he came back to a city he could barely recognize because so much had changed for the better. He describes the community’s reaction and support for his podcast as “amazing.”
“There’s been so many people who’ve reached out to me,” he said. “So many stories that I’ve been able to tell and I think just from my perspective it’s important to be able to be an independent media voice and just tell the stories of our community.”
