Bonding over business, community and motherhood, Em and Aim came together to create the Born in the Bend Podcast in the spring of 2020. Highlighting local gems, entrepreneurs, and awesome stories originating in Fort Bend, the podcast arose out of a desire to foster community, create a sense of place, and instill pride in calling Fort Bend County home. Having grown up in Pecan Grove, Emily brings the native Texan voice to the table, while Aimee, a South Louisiana transplant, brings the outsider’s perspective. Their combined life experiences make for entertaining interviews, pulling different story angles from their guests and offering two versions of Fort Bend – where it’s been, and where it’s going.
Born in the Bend launched in the spring of 2020, and has since published over 20 episodes, featuring long format interviews with guests like Steve Onstad, founder of the Swinging Door BBQ, Shannan Stavinoha, Executive Director of Parks Youth Ranch, Joey Lenderman, owner of Enchanted Gardens Richmond, and Zach Lambert, Founder of Mercy Goods.
Em & Aim record and release episodes in a seasonal format and are open to working with local partners to tell their stories. If you’re wondering if Em & Aim are the right partners for you, visit the sponsor page for more details.
