Thanks for visiting this page to learn more about the Good Words Podcast!  Let me try and answer some . . .

VERY GOOD QUESTIONS:

- Who are you?
My name is Lynn Hickernell, and I have been working with kids and families for my entire working life, as a children's librarian in public libraries, director of Christian Education in churches, and since 2008, as a writer and performer of original music and songs.  (You can learn more about my music at www.misslynn.com.)

- Why are you making a podcast?
In all of my work with children, I have always been concerned about helping young people maneuver successfully through the world, and the older I have gotten, the more I realize that we all need help in this area, irrespective of age!  I also really enjoy language, and this project is a merger of those passions.

- Why aren't you putting advertising on your podcast?
The podcast is intended for listeners of all ages, and young listeners are particularly susceptible to the manipulation of advertisements.  Ads very often use language to mislead and obfuscate, which simply does not match with a program devoted to improving communication.

- Why are you calling your funders "partners"?
I have made five CDs as a recording artist, and while my name is on the front of each, many people contributed to their creation. This Podcast will likewise be a collaboration, with many people contributing ideas, content, and resources. Just as good communication requires the active participation of multiple parties, I envision the Good Words Podcast as an ongoing conversation among myself and all the partners I connect with here on Patreon.

- What benefits do podcast partners receive?
GWP partners will have early access to all the episodes of the Podcast, as well as additional material such as episode transcripts, downloads of featured Miss Lynn songs, even Good Words Podcast logo buttons.

Thanks again for finding out more about the Good Words Podcast!  If I didn't answer your question above, please send me a message at misslynn [at] misslynn.com and I will!
