Your host, Ananda harrison

Ananda first discovered her love of storytelling after taking an introduction to improvisation class in London, later performing with several amateur groups including Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry. Since moving to Denver in 2014 she has indulged her other great passion - growing food, which it turns out is harder than it sounds! The idea for Germinate came after watching a live podcast show, at a time when Ananda was struggling with indoor vermiculture and attempts to garden in her apartment complex. In 2017 Ananda bought a modest brick bungalow in Denver with a large backyard and Germinate was reborn.
