Reflecting On Season 2 of The Asheville View
We had a lot of big plans for Season 2 of The Asheville View, and then March happened. We were still catching our breath from running with Ahmad Arbery when Breonna Taylor was murdered, and then COVID-19 hit. It was a weird time for me because I was trying to lead my team through the chaos, but this wasn’t something I had ever seen before. There were presidential briefs happening every day, and the only thing that was certain was there were no certainties. My anxiety was a situation, and for a moment I thought maybe we should pause The Asheville View.
Everybody had a lot going on, and it was hard to keep them engaged. We collectively took a deep breath as a team, and some needed to inhale longer. Eventually we got comfortable with being uncomfortable, and each of us, in our time, started creating content again.
What is different about The Asheville View?
We each now only create the content we feel most inspired to create. Kirby loves to cook and has been sharing great recipes. Myriam has been sharing community resources, great cocktail ideas, and more. Tina helped me make sure we interviewed each city council candidate, and she has been sharing important resources about affordable housing and healthcare. I’ve revamped “Ask The Doctor”, I’ve been honoring the history of Black Asheville and helping lift often unheard voices in our community
What season of The Asheville View are we on?
The Asheville View used to be a set number of 30-45 min long shows per season, but now it is a series of segments varying in length. We used to only film a few months of the year; now our seasons are 12 months long. Our content release schedule is sporadic, but constant. In other words, our show is now more of a social media style talk show.
How can I catch The Asheville View?
Some weeks we release 2 new segments, and other weeks we release 3. The best way to keep up with our show is to:
