Joan Andrews is the founder of The Front Porch People and the creative mind behind most of its signature shows, including The Sound of Movies. She began producing audio programs in 1999 when she noticed a lack of quality, entertaining audio content. She started developing stimulating, easygoing, engaging content that people could listen to throughout their day - whether driving across town, home folding laundry, or jogging around the neighborhood - which would then give her and everyone else who listened something interesting to talk about. 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 (hence our name). Joan is a wife, mother, creator, film enthusiast, and lover of literature and family board games.
