Genuine, the podcast

It is time to shift society's dialogue away from the negative and towards inspiration.

It is time to Spark and Ignite.


By taking off our masks, being who we are, embodying our experience and leading from a place of authenticity, we can change the world. Our willingness to be who we are is the spark that ignites that genuineness in others.

Genuine, the podcast aims to do just that by harvesting stories from around the world to showcase what sparks and inspires people.


Join Sarah for the first Series to be launched in March - the aim is to produce 8-10 episodes this spring and another 8-10 in the autumn.

The aim of this podcast is to harvest, nurture and curate stories from around the world that highlight what it means to be genuine. We do not set out to concretely define the word genuine, but rather reveal the incredible diversity of what genuine means to people from all walks of life, all around the globe.

As the founder and producer of this podcast, I, Sarah Lipton, am deeply inspired that now is the time to nurture this shift in society's dialogue. I know from my own experience that when one is inspired, it is very hard not to be genuine. I also know that one person's spark is another person's ignition. Stories that spark have the potential to ignite possibility for the ones that listen. 

Story is the oldest, most powerful medium of communication. I am thrilled, honored and humbled to step my toe into the stream of inspiring stories flowing around the world. I am committed to bringing you stories from people you've never heard of whose stories could shift how you think about the world. I am inspired to share stories from people you have heard of, though that may be a little later down the line. 

I have arrived at Patreon because right now I am doing all of the work on international interviews, audio editing, sound design and episode production - all on my own, without a stitch of funding, and all at the expense of my family. I have to change this (we have to eat too, and have a new mortgage to pay as well). You can help me. 

It is time, I need to ask for your support. 

Help me help society. Join the conversation. Add your stories to the chorus of inspiration. 


My patrons will be on the front lines of my interviews, will help direct the lens of my focus, and will even have the opportunity to influence creative direction.

If you are longing to be part of shifting society's dialogue, please join me.

Goals
$115 of $500 per 1 podcast episode
In order to produce a highly polished, professional and engaging podcast, I have had to hire a team.

I started by doing it all on my own, which, on top of having a toddler and the rest of my business to run - www.thepresencepoint.com, is crazy. 

One episode costs around $600 for me to produce (meaning - how much I have to pay my editor and producer, and my marketing intern).

If enough of you gave just a few dollars a month, it would even out splendidly!

Please help me create this offering for you by helping me fund the time needed to make it available! My gratitude will seriously know no bounds.
