Getting psyched is all about doing what we love and loving what we do.
Hello, I’m Leeann (aka Dj Psyched)
Leeann is a bonafide bad*ss who writes blogs, makes music, creates videos, partakes in the visual arts, and dabbles in some photography. She has five sisters and is the second to youngest in the family. In 2016 she went off to North Carolina State University to become a scientist and musician. And she did not actually do either of those things.
In fact, instead of studying in a STEM field, she found that psychology was more her style.
Two years into her college career she felt something was missing. Her search to find something she could be more passionate about led her to WKNC 88.1 FM Raleigh. The coolest radio station on the planet.
In the summer of 2018 she became a DJ for the radio station and chose the name “DJ Psyched”, because she couldn’t think of anything else (this turned out to be an amazing choice).
In late 2019 she was offered the chance to start a podcast through WKNC and she took it. At the time she had no idea what it would be about, but she wanted to try something new so she decided she’d go for it.
That’s how the Get Psyched podcast was born. As she was video calling her good friend PME he suggested she call the podcast the “Get Psyched” podcast, and it only took a matter of seconds for her to decide that the title had been chosen. It seemed brilliant.
DJ Psyched was no longer a random name used during her “2k Indie” radio segment. It was now the basis of her creative mission and image.
Getting psyched is all about loving what we do and doing what we love.
And it’s always best when done together. Community is the basis of the Get Psyched mission.
That’s why she always says “Let’s Get Psyched Together”.
And that’s it folks. That’s the story of the Get Psyched podcast and the Get Psyched website. While it’s still under construction and constantly evolving, the core values will always be community, education, wellness, passion, and reflection.
Until Next Time,
Let’s Stay Psyched Together
