With our Nooze Hounds podcast on break until the end of the year, we’re taking this opportunity to introduce a new podcast, On Call with Hannah Hasan, from Queen City Nerve contributor and Muddy Turtle Talks founder Hannah Hasan. In her latest episode, she speaks with Jewel Hayden, co-founder of Project B.O.L.T. 

Hasan, who was named Best Creative in our recent Best in the Nest issue, launched Muddy Turtle Talks with her sister in 2018 as a way to share the stories of those who often go ignored in west Charlotte’s Enderly Park neighborhood. In 2020, as her live, spoken-word events were cancelled, she has been transitioning to virtual events, written stories and, now, audio.

This five-part series will feature talks with the five women Hannah recently highlighted in the pages of Queen City Nerve for her latest story: Passing the Crown: Five Community Heroes of the Pandemic. Episode 3 features Jewel Hayden, co-founder of Project B.O.L.T., a community organization that focuses on issues around housing, food and employment.
