Today we’d like to introduce you to TJ and Tanner.
Hi TJ and Tanner, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
Yes! Views from the 615 is a podcasting duo based in Nashville, TN our names are TJ and Tanner we are both from surrounding areas in Nashville. Tanner is from Gallatin TN and TJ is from Franklin, TN and we created the podcast at the start of the pandemic. It’s been a wild ride but we are loving every minute of it. Our podcast is about topics such as politics, celebrity entertainment, and everything that’s going on in Nashville and in the state of Tennessee. Hopefully, when this pandemic lets up we can start to do live shows for all our supporters.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The struggles that we have faced with the podcast is mostly been about our health and safety when it came to recording episodes. We think we have done an amazing job of getting our name and podcast out to the public considering the current pandemic. All in all, we are both vaccinated and we mask up everywhere we go. So to be very honest with you it was a struggle and very terrifying at the beginning, but now it’s become very easy to record and edit the podcast.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
At Views From The 615, we strive to be the most upfront and honest podcast in Nashville and to give our supporters the best in entertainment, comedy, and real-world issues. If you listen to our podcast you can hear our true and honest opinions on different subjects whether it’s racial justice, or women’s rights all the way to who had the better album, Drake or Kanye.
In that last sentence, you really have to be passionate about music, lol. We also put a spotlight on a lot of local businesses in Tennessee. Now more than ever they need our help to stay open and serve their great food and products to amazing people in this current climate. Views From The 615 is always changing and evolving but one thing we won’t change is how authentic we are about human rights, local businesses, and the great people of Nashville.
Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
Our advice if anyone or if you are a duo/group like us is to take it easy that’s first! Second, be patient! Creating content takes a lot of time and energy. Please don’t stress yourself out. Come up with a plan and then execute it each time and even if you fail that’s alright you are still learning.
It took us about a good six months before we started getting our own groove in the recording. We would also say if you have any mentors or people that genuinely want to help let them! It’s always good to get constructive feedback and just to listen to new ideas. Views From The 615 wouldn’t be what it is today without our close friends letting us know their take on each episode.
