“Among us are neighbors making things better; Human Powered brings their stories to life, warming our hearts and bridging distances real and perceived.” Mike Perry, best-selling author of Population: 485 and Truck: A Love Story
Human Powered is about how people make places better. In six episodes, our host Jimmy Gutierrez takes us to meet real people who are doing incredible things. We hear, in their words, about the place they call home, what motivates them, how they bring people together, and their struggles and triumphs along the way — from architecture professor Arijit Sen’s work alongside community activists in Milwaukee, to Caroline Gottschalk Drushke’s storytelling collaboration with flood-affected residents of the Driftless, to Tracey Robertson’s anti-racist photography exhibit in Oshkosh. And there’s more!
These stories share the humanity of people across Wisconsin. Listening, we think you’ll feel you understand your state, and your neighbors, a bit better. And we hope that listeners may even be inspired by the power each of us has to make a difference.
We invite you to get to know Wisconsin and your neighbors a bit better. And you may even be inspired by the power each of us has to make a difference.
This whole project is meant to bring folks together and dream of what’s possible together. People will love hearing the voices and intimately getting to know some of the most inspiring people in our state. And the whole production team who are behind bringing the stories together are so incredibly talented. – Jimmy Gutierrez
