Trauma Talks: Rising from the Ashes is a podcast series developed by The Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care (ITTIC). The series aims to present a variety of personal audio narratives that explore how trauma-informed care (TIC) intersects with individual experiences of healing and connection following traumatic events. The operationalization of TIC principles in the interviewing process is illustrated throughout, and a qualitative analysis is presented, exploring how podcast guests experienced these principles in practice. Justification for the creation of a podcast series illuminating TIC is outlined, and implications for social work educators on the use of podcasting is discussed. Podcasting is ultimately highlighted as a useful product and tool to harness technology for social good and provide guidance toward manifesting TIC.
