About Us

#SpanningtheNeed is an all-inclusive podcast series and blog, covering a variety of subjects including politics, health, education, sports, and genuine feel-good stories, all affecting our community. One of the most important branches of our mission at #SpanningtheNeed is too better the lives of others through our own work. Whether that’s volunteer time, work in school, or on the sports’ field, we hope to inspire our listeners and readers to do the same.
