Make Today Well Lived - The Podcast, Sponsored by Michael J Libow

“Make Today Well Lived” is a monthly podcast inspired by NormanAid's MonthlyAid mental health topics. The show is  hosted by Beverly Hills High School’s NormanAid Wellness Center Founder, Ali Norman-Franks along with Peer Counseling students and directed by KBEV.  Each episode will explore HOW TO make each to-day Well Lived, every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Through dynamic interviews and engaging discussions with BHHS students, staff, alumni, wellness experts, and celebrities, this program will bring to light the most relevant topics in today’s teen & high school life. 

All 10 episodes are open for students and families with topics that cover all aspects of teen culture, social experiences, mental health, and well-being.  Each episode will air on the 3rd Wednesday of the month and will feature different themes and guest speakers.

Special thank you to BVMS PTA and BHHS PTSA for purchasing all the necessary equipment for KBEV to produce the show.
