72: Amy Hoffman (Future Teens) - Welcome to Breakup Season
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST
Amy Hoffman is the vocalist and guitarist for the Boston-based band, Future Teens! Amy is one of the most wonderful human beings in the scene and their dedication to making the scene safe and inclusive is one of the best examples of creating a community of care. Amy had a wild ride that led her not only to the east coast but also to a career as a professional musician aboard cruise ships and eventually into their role with Future Teens. The band is about to release a brand new album, and Amy is READY to hit the road - a place that feels like home for them.
Also, prepare yourself for one of the most chill and laid back chats I’ve ever had on this podcast! It’s a true joy.
