The sySTEM Impacted podcast, led by host Christopher Etienne (PTI), shares stories of system-impacted people’s successes and struggles related to accessing STEM education and careers through discussions of topics such as mental health awareness and application of trauma-informed practices to support people impacted by incarceration. 

The podcast provides a platform to allow people to recognize the power of their own voices and display the humanity in all of us. We hope to grant the public an intimate perspective on how these broader social issues directly impact at-risk populations by highlighting stories such as these.
