ANNOUNCEMENT! We won the 2023 Ampie Creator Award!

WE WON!!! Thank you to everyone in our big-little city (and on our email list!!!) who nominated and voted for The Untold Tales Podcast to win the Ampie Award in the Creator category! 🎧 🎤
We love our listeners, fans and patrons and are just so happy to share this WIN with YOU. 🥂
The Ampie Awards here in the City of Peoria, Arizona  celebrate the innovation, creativity, collaboration and excellence within the West Valley's entrepreneurial ecosystem while also amplifying these values. These awards are all about saying a huge thank you and celebrating the hard work entrepreneurs do every day, while boosting the key areas that help local businesses, nonprofits, and other startups thrive and grow.
We really couldn’t have gotten this recognition without the tireless support of our friends at the Arizona State University  J. Orin Edson Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute!  We also would be nowhere without YOU, our faithful listeners. Thank you.
