Hoot n Waddle is a publishing and digital audio company run by a hoot and a waddle, or Jared Duran and Janell Hughes. Started in 2016, HnW began as a platform for Phoenix, AZ-based arts and culture podcasts (a co-op of sorts). In March of 2018, it was announced that the company would enter the independent publishing world, with the first books slated for release in the fall of the same year.

We’ve got big plans and even bigger ideas here at Hoot n Waddle, but while our heads are in the clouds, our feet remain firmly on the ground--which either means that we’re extraordinarily tall, the clouds are really low to the ground, we’ve got giraffe necks, or we’ve got floating heads. Enjoy all of those visuals. You’re welcome.

Services offered by Hoot n Waddle include:

Digital Audio (podcasting)
  • Recording
  • Production
  • File and site hosting services
  • Design services (logo, website, etc.)

Publishing
  • Editing
  • Layout and design
  • Sales and marketing

All proposals, inquiries, questions, comments, gushing praise, and petty complaints should be sent to [email protected], but don’t send us your manuscripts. If we receive your manuscripts in our inbox, we’re going to assume that you didn’t read our submission guidelines, and that would be a shame.

Keep it surreal!

Love,
Hoot n Waddle

The Cool T-Shirt Level
$25 or more per month 0 patrons
  • I think the tier name covers this, but what it doesn't say is that we're going to do a new design every year, so if you like t-shirts, be sure to maintain this level of patronage. (Also, please be sure to let us know your shirt size at checkout.)
  • Plus all previous rewards

  • At this level, your name will get added to the Producer "wall" on our website, we'll link to your site, and if you have a project or product, I'll promote it in the opening and closing of the show.
  • It goes without saying that you'll get all the other rewards, but I'll say it anyway: You get all the previous rewards.
Goals
$4 of $2,000 per month
Reaching this goal would cover all of our overhead, plus provide for an advertising budget to grow the show's audience and draw greater attention to arts and culture in Phoenix.
