About the Podcast
Where it all Started
Starting in 2020, Wills Porter started producing a podcast called the Joy in the Journey Podcast. The initial goal of this podcast venture was to create a platform that promoted conversations about organ/tissue donation and transplant. While Wills started the podcast with this goal in mind, he soon found that the conversation around organ/tissue donation and transplant was much larger than he originally anticipated. Realizing this, Wills decided to take a step back from podcasting so he could reevaluate the podcast conapt. Durring this reevaluation process There was one question being asked. What’s next?
A new Chapter
In the early parts of 2020, Wills received an email from Anthony Reed. In this email, Anthony shared about his own experiences with dialysis and transplant. After receiving this email, Wills decided to connect with Anthony and scheduled a time for the two to connect. That scheduled one hour conversation ended up lasting over three hours. After the phone call with Anthony, Wills had an opportunity to grow the podcast into something extra-Organary.
