JAM Sessions is a weekly series of events, classes, and discussions to help members of the outdoor community feel more connected. JAM Collective is dedicated to amplifying the voices and stories of nonprofits, BIPOC, and underrepresented communities, as a part of JAM Sessions.

HearHere is a new audio entertainment app designed to enable the curious road-tripper to discover the people, places and histories of the land they are traveling through. The app launched in early August 2020 with over 1500 stories covering the West coast (WA, OR, CA) and will soon feature stories spanning the United States.

“The idea of hearing about the land you're traveling through originated when I was a traveling sales rep in the early 70s,” said Bill Werlin, co-founder of HearHere. “I had eight western states as my territory which equated to hours and hours behind the wheel. The scenery was spectacular, but I was always curious as to the backstories of what I was seeing. A chance encounter with Woody Sears and then Kevin Costner opened the door to creating HearHere. Notwithstanding a long and enjoyable relationship with JAM's founder, there is no better voice to the Outdoor Industry and related markets. For all my attachments to the Outdoor Industry, both personal and professional, JAM was the definitive choice to speak about HearHere.”

HearHere features brief stories based on the listener’s geographical location narrated by various hosts, including Kevin Costner, Phil Jackson, and Gregory Harrison. The app is the creation of audio storytelling entrepreneur and technologist, Woody Sears, and Bill Werlin, former President of The North Face. In addition to serving as a writer, editor and narrator on HearHere, Costner is also a Co-Founder of the company.

Tune in to the JAM Collective Instagram Live discussion on Thursday August 20th, at 12 pm PST.
