Introducing… US!

View the original announcement here



Tavinda Media is a network of authors and podcasters.

We’re passionate analysts, wannabe best-selling authors, quasi-foodies, master imaginers, insomniac crafters, powerful dreamers, strong warriors and loving nurturers creating artellectual stimutainment.

We’re razing tedium one story at a time.

Reading stories, writing stories, listening to stories and talking about stories are among the beautiful things in this world that bring me great joy. I created Tavinda Media to hotel real and imagined characters and their…our…adventures. Reach out with your story, new idea or a helpful suggestion. I’d love to hear from you.

Octavia Reese, Founder



Our shows are real enough for you and [mostly] clean enough for kids. Look for Tavinda Media productions wherever you find your favorite podcasts.

The life and times of two wannabe best-selling authors

TFW you’re at the bottom of that mountain and everyday is an uphill climb, teetering on cliffs of quitting, dodging avalanches of self-doubt and then scrambling to find refuge from the unexpected deluge of rejection letters… yeah, this is that.

Octavia Reese and Nan Higgins are both published authors eagerly working towards a life made through creating best-sellers…or something close to it.

Join them on their adventure to a life made in creative writing. They’re unedited and kinda funny.

OUT NEXT:dream the podcast tavinda media
Unearthing the thoughts we can’t control

Visions manifest in the subconscious. Are they messages from beyond to help us or warn us or just memories and fears implanted by life? Dreams and their interpretations used to change history, but this supernatural art has been forgotten…or has it?

Your host Octavia Reese takes you on a journey from the pages of ancient records and into the strangest corners of the mind.

OUT LATER:fml the podcast tavinda media
FML: fork my life
Digesting wisdom at the table

FML the podcast applies culinary arts to life. Your hosts Octavia, Darla and Sakeena interview chefs and restaurant owners for a taste of their best dishes — a main course of philosophy and maybe a moral or two for dessert.

Fourteen-year-old Taryn doesn’t have a social life to be slain in walled-off forgotten Detroit. Plagued with a strange rash and haunted by dreams of her late mother, Taryn avoids closeness with people as much as possible. But when her grandmother goes missing, Taryn finds herself in the middle of a cyclone of deception and she is suddenly racing against the clock to save the Hibouleans, terrifying shapeshifting relatives she never knew she had. Utilizing both scientific and fine arts savvy to decode cryptic clues and uncover secrets hidden within ancient magnetic stones, Taryn must access a priceless treasure and protect it – with her life. Along with newfound purpose, confidence, her best friend and, awkwardly, her longtime crush, Taryn embarks on an adventure, that transforms not only her inner narrative, but reshapes history for her people.
