Marigolds & Juniper will be created by Jes Hartt. The interview-style podcast will focus on local household composting and growing your own food.

Hartt moved to Kamloops with a young family in 2017, previously working as a cook, and now focused on food security and education.

The Love Legacy, created by Taqueesha Lightfood and hosted by Katie MacArthur, will feature stories of life and loss. The pair will help people get ready to say goodbye to loved ones by asking tough, thoughtful and lighthearted questions around difficult subjects.

Kamloops' winning podcasts are two of 16 grant winners selected as part of Storyhive's first podcast edition, which was open to creators in B.C. and Alberta.
