Our Founder

Joan Dolan-Andrews

Joan Andrews is the Founder of Evergreen Podcasts and the creative mind behind its Front Porch Classics, including Novel Conversations, I’ve Heard That Song Before and The Sound of Movies. She began producing audio programs in 1999 when she noticed a lack of quality, entertaining audio content.

It is Joan’s goal to create a community of listeners who really enjoy exploring the great works of our culture and discussing them like neighbors on the front porch. Joan is a wife, mother, creator, film enthusiast, and lover of literature and family board games.
