This week's guest is podcast Maurice Cherry, who I met at Podcast Evolutions many months ago. It feels like a hundred years but it was really only two months. He has an award-winning podcast called Revision Path, which is the first podcast featured in the Smithsonian. Here's his bio:

Maurice Cherry works as a snior creative strategist at Glitch, the friendly community where everyone can discover and create the best stuff on the web. Before Glitch, Maurice was principal and creative director at Lunch, an award-winning multidisciplinary creative studio in Atlanta, GA.These days, Maurice is perhaps most well known for his award-winning podcast Revision Path, which showcases Black designers, developers, and digital creators from all over the world. Other projects of Maurice’s include the Black Weblog Awards, 28 Days of the Web, The Year of Tea, and the design anthology RECOGNIZE.Maurice is the 2018 recipient of the Steven Heller Prize for Cultural Commentary from AIGA, was named as one of GDUSA’s “People to Watch” in 2018, and was included in the 2018 edition of The Root 100 (#60), their annual list of the most influential African-Americans ages 25 to 45.

I met Maurice just hanging out trying to get work done at one of the conference tables and we struck up a conversation. I really loved what he had to say about podcasting and finding your fanbase, so I invited him on the show, and he did NOT disappoint. He really brought the value about how to make something that resonates with an audience.
