About the Podcast

Heart of the Sierra is hosted by Big Joe Marshall and centers around the lives and stories of the individuals who bring light and life to the Sierra Nevada mountain towns in California. Hear the tell-alls of talented artists, rising star musicians, and small business owners who have shaped their communities with fresh ideas. Here in the Sierras, the world works a bit differently than the big cities. We love to celebrate the inspiring people that make our communities amazing. 

Hear Big Joe speak to new guests each episode. We feature original local music each episode, so subscribe to hear your next favorite artist! Our goal is to share the people behind the hard work of art, music and small businesses. We focus on uplifting the community and supporting others by sharing their stories!

Heart of the Sierra is brought to you by The Bright Orange Poppy and Touch Yosemite, located in Twain Harte, California. Heart of the Sierra is available on Spotify & Podbean today! Coming soon to more streaming platforms.
