Episode 17: Lindy Johnson with America’s Kids Belong

The Illuminate Podcast

Episode 17: Lindy Johnson with America’s Kids Belong⁠ ⁠ This week we are talking to Lindy Johnson. She is a licensed therapist and trauma care trainer for America’s Kids Belong. ⁠ AKB mobilizes government, faith-based, business and creative leaders around the goal of permanency and belonging for every child. Combining grassroots and “grasstops” methods, America’s Kids Belong runs innovative initiatives in states to help ensure that every child is in a loving home by: recruiting more foster and adoptive families, engaging wrap-around support for at-risk, foster and adoptive families along the way, and helping youth who have aged out without a family reach their full potential.⁠ ⁠ I really enjoyed learning from Lindy during our conversation. We talked about trauma and attachment within the foster care lens. We also talked about some of the initiatives that AKB is involved in! Hearing about these brought so much emotion up for me. Vulnerable children are waiting for families as we speak and the work that AKB does to bring these children permanency is so very needed.⁠ ⁠ I know that this week isn’t a light hearted easy listen. This week will challenge you. BUT I know that this week will educate you and encourage you to speak out for the vulnerable around you. ⁠ Hosted by Emily Reddington Show Notes Lindy Johnson on Instagram America’s Kids Belong I Belong Project⁠ Dream Makers Project This episode is sponsored by LOLA.

Episode 7 - Lindy Johnson

The Almost Perfect Podcast

I'm going to assume you've at least heard of Lindy Johnson if you haven't yet seen her face on a billboard near you. Lindy is a rising comedy star who is currently on your TV screens (if you have Showmax) thanks to Trevor Noah's Nationwild, but she's been rapidly making a name for herself in the 2 years she's been doing comedy. Yes, just 2 years! Lindy is a naturally funny person who takes the time to put thought and effort into her material, and it's paying off for her.  In this episode, we learn about how she got started in comedy and her journey since. It's definitely a unique path that's hard to replicate without a lot of talent and a little bit of luck. We get into her joke writing process and the difference between writing for Twitter and writing for the stage, we talk about sleeping on couches in the city after gigs, and we discuss dying on a stage that most comedians never die on. We also discuss the issues she faces as a coloured woman, some of the issues the coloured community faces in Cape Town, and how her identity has shaped her and provided some of the opportunities she has today.  It's an in-depth and hilarious look into the early years of someone who will no doubt be a household name in a few years. Enjoy.   https://almostperfect.co.za/ep-7-lindy-johnson/
