Run by NYT bestselling author and award-winning podcaster Lani Diane Rich, Chipperish Media creates podcasts that celebrate finding joy and happiness in the stories we love, never apologizing for loving what we love, and lighting a path to the bright side, even if that means engaging in an occasional bit of denial.

The world is dark and scary. Don't curse the darkness.

In Production Now:

How Story Works
: Conversations

Adding to the How Story Works college-level course in narrative theory, Dr. Kelly Jones brings her concept development skills to my narrative theory to create conversations about storytelling that elaborate on the concepts already learned, develop them further, take more time to teach them and include story fixing episodes to illustrate concepts, as well as interviews with amazing writers like NYT bestseller Joshilyn Jackson, Black Sails star and moonlighting novelist Luke Arnold and Good Place producer, writer and actor Josh Siegal.

Still Pretty: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Podcast
In this fully-spoiled podcast, I sit down with feminist film scholar Noelle LaCroix dive deep into imagery, themes, and philosophies in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, connecting the power of thought to the power of story with regard to the ultimate story about power.

Listen Up A-Holes: A Marvel Cinematic Universe podcast
In Listen Up A-Holes, I team up with super hero scholar
Joshua Unruh of Pulp Diction Productions to create a Marvel Cinematic Universe filled with wit and enthusiasm.

Shows on hiatus:
Still Dead: An Angel Podcast
 In Still Dead, I join forces once again with the Southern Fried Scholar herself, Dr. Kelly Jones, to talk about Angel, the spinoff from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This podcast is specifically for people who wanted to get into Angel, but bounced hard off the first season, and for fans who want to get to the good stuff. We're non-spoiled, but we move at a clip, doing anywhere from 2-3 episodes of Angel per one episode of Still Dead to get us through the gloop and straight to the good stuff.

Metaphors Be With You Join Star Wars fan and metaphor enthusiast Rob Heiret in a discussion of the hidden meanings lurking in the narrative and imagery of Star Wars.

Awegasm is a podcast about that moment of explosive inspiration when an idea sparks a firestorm in your brain, and you just have to talk about it! Join Dr. Kelly Jones and Noelle LaCroix as they discuss and dissect the topics and ideas that light them up, and will hopefully lead you to Awegasms of your own! Episodes air on the first and third Friday of every month.

Welcome to the End Times: A Good Omens Podcast
In Welcome to the End Times, evil demon Lani Diane Rich and good angel Dr. Kelly Jones dedicate twelve weeks to the study of "Good Omens," first examining the book by Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett, and then digging into all episodes of the Prime mini-series launching May 31. Welcome to the End Times launches Sunday, April 21.

Big Strong Yes: A Podcast about Courage, Creativity, and the Call to Adventure
In Big Strong Yes, Lani and Dr. Kelly Jones are going to read and discuss three books that will get you up off the ground after a fall (Dr. Brené Brown's Rising Strong), inspire you to engage with your creative self (Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic), and encourage you to take the action you need to change your life (Shonda Rhimes's Year of Yes). In the process, they both hope to change their own lives as well, and they welcome you in to watch the process.Jed Bartlet is My President
Sometimes denial is a good thing. Join NYT bestelling author and award-winning podcaster Lani Diane Rich with a new guest every week as they watch an episode of The West Wing and pretend that Jed Bartlet is president of the United States.

Sex & Whisky: A Discussion of Outlander
It's Outlander season once again, and we Season 3 begins, Lani takes a Still Pretty vlog + podcast approach to following Jamie and Claire through their time-traveling adventures.
