This week kicks off our multi-part series celebrating Sip of Hope's first birthday! Celebrating on May 1st, 2019, we recorded founders, staff, friends, and family of Hope for the Day and Sip of Hope, capturing how the first-of-a-kind coffee shop - with all of its profits directly benefiting proactive suicide prevention - came to be, as well as what makes it tick on a daily basis. This episode brings you a handful of awesome long-form interviews with Jonny Boucher, Founder and CEO of Hope for the Day; Kyle Hodges, Minister of Propaganda for Dark Matter Coffee; Luis Arroyo, Cook County Commissioner; and Brian Kmiecik, General Manager of Sip of Hope. Mike Vinopal of Hope for the Day joins us to bring you this week's interviews!
Background music for this week's interviews comes from Soundstripe artist, Shane Becker, with the songs titled "Harmonics" and "Cloud Ninety 9".
