Podcast interview about how to build community online with Michel Neray of momondays
For anyone asking themselves how to build community online, this episode is a must-listen. What does “community” mean in this pandemic era anyway? How do we continue to cultivate it?
In this episode, Kevin and Michel Neray (the founder of momondays) discuss the challenges and opportunities of building community. They talk about creating genuine human connection online while the current pandemic keeps us from doing so in person.

He’s Been Here Before
Michel has been a guest on the podcast once before, in Episode 55 (“Purposeful Storytelling”). If you’re looking to learn how to build community, go back and listen to Episode 55. You’ll learn more about how and why momondays was created. Michel also shared some very touching stories that are referenced in this new episode. One example is the tale of how his mother never lost sight of the love in the world. She never lost her sense of humor despite her first-hand experience as part of the holocaust.
In Episode 55, Michel also related some revelations he had about his father. Michel’s insights into what his father went through during his life is touching and thought-provoking. Give it a listen. Not only will it add a richer context to the discussion on how to build community, it stands as a very insightful conversation on its own.
How To Build Community
This episode includes some interesting discussion on the differences between “community” and “tribalism.” Michel gives many thoughtful examples of how “community” has the power to give people a voice without boundaries.
As Michel now builds the momondays community online, he does so with the mission to change hearts, change minds and change the world.
