Alana Baumann and Samra Michael are the creators of She Well Read, a podcast with the mission of empowering women by encouraging them to invest in themselves and others. The best friends share their love for reading by discussing their book picks chapter by chapter, mixing in anecdotes from their personal experiences and engaging with guests about current events. In this conversation, the pair talk about how they’ve cultivated their own creative passions before and during social distancing as well as developing their side projects. Samra, a stylist focused on sustainability and repurposing vintage clothing, also talks about her up-cycled series of solidarity shirts benefitting various Alabama Bail Out Funds.
