Shane launched the Peak City Podcast in 2016 from his office above North Salem Street in Historic Downtown Apex. He designed the podcast to be a free, community-service broadcast that helps fill in the local news gap for longtime residents, while offering a snapshot into the town for newcomers and visitors. 


Shane has a background in corporate radio broadcasting and, after talking himself out of this project multiple times, he decided to put his old broadcasting equipment to work, sharing stories and news about the town he cares so much about.

Shane graduated from Apex High School in the late 90s before graduating from N.C. State University in the early 2000s. He lives about a mile south of the historic downtown district with his amazing wife Savannah and their three incredible kids — ages 8, 6, and 4. As a central Ohio native who remembers 1994 as the year he enjoyed his first fried-chicken biscuit, introducing new residents to the town’s “wave-to-everyone” culture is one of his favorite hobbies.

Alexis & Leif Jenssen came to the podcast in 2019. Originally from the Pacific Northwest now reside with their two children in the heart of historic downtown Apex, NC. We weren't born in the South, but we got here as quick as we could. 

Together, they own and operate The Bowerbird Agency out of their home in downtown Apex, and they bring their passion for community to the town through supporting the management of the Apex Farmers Market.

Their goal with the podcast is to support a tight knit community of people by sharing stories and building connections among the members of this great community.
