Peepsy is creating a children's podcast

Ever since I was a wee girl, stories have played out like a reel in my head. This imagination was inherited from my Father who loved to tell a good bedtime story. Sometimes he would read from books, but more often he would spin his own tales on the spot! Stories enhanced with wild hand movements and an expressive tone that left me and my three younger siblings wide-eyed and on a string.

Goodnight Peepsy is a story about a feral child, Germaine, who is growing up in the wilds of Northern Ontario. Peepsy is her guardian bear, a great imaginary Mother who guides her. Other characters are Victor: a book smart boy visiting from the city, Carl: a scruffy stoic fox, and Milkshake: a sassy goat.

My mind is full of stories, just like my Father. I would like to create a podcast to inspire children's imagination, to connect them to the wild elements of nature, to illustrate the important bonds of friendship and love (that it can be found in unlikely places), and finally to have them summon their own wise old Peepsy Bear when they are afraid to give them courage and guidance.

I would not be able to devote as much time to this if it were not for your generous support.

Thank you kindly,
Mandy

Your child (or you) will become a character in an episode! As an animal of course!

Please send me you or your child's name and likeness, plus any special characteristics you would want mentioned (crazy curls of red, a love of Math, a jovial juggler) and I will write them into the story and they will get to meet with Peepsy and cast and join them on an adventure.

$0 of $1,500 per month
This may seem overly ambitious, but I would like storytelling to be my full time job. This amount would allow me to devote full days towards the craft and also grow in my technical skills so that I can produce better quality podcasts.
