As part of our Power of Podcast: Encouraging Student Voices project, we are proud to release our first podcast: My 15 Year Overnight Success: An Interview with DJ Corchin.
Throughout the project, students of CDC Vimont and The Learning Exchange will be able to learn how to create their own podcasts through workshops and information videos to have their voices heard! In this interview, students prepared a list of questions for TLE podcast interviewer Chris Shee to ask DJ during the interview. Take a listen!
DJ Corchin is an author and illustrator of many children’s books. He uses his unique humor and wit to focus on socially conscious messages involving kindness and emotional awareness. Some of his other titles include, Do You Speak Fish?, A Thousand NO’s, Half-Cat, and Mystical Rules For My Magical Daughter. DJ has both illustrated his own stories as well as worked with other talented artists such as award winning-illustrator and writer, Dan Dougherty.
