Thank you so much for being What If World fans! We hope our stories have brought joy and imagination into your kids' lives... and maybe a few moments of peace into yours. Whether you want to help us grow, or you just can't get enough What If World, we're honored you're checking out our page.

Why We're On Patreon
Mr. Eric records and edits stories on his day off while sitting on a yoga mat in a closet, head swamped by Miss Karen's dresses, constantly pausing for cars, dogs, and leaf-blowers. 
Once we can afford a sound-proof booth, we'll be able to record more and better episodes for all of you! Every patron allows Eric & Karen to devote more time to What If World, its growth, and its community.

Here there be Freebies!
As a thank you just for reading this page, here's a PDF workbook to go along with episode 4: "What if things were floating in outer space?" We'll be working on more polished material soon and would love your feedback. Download now

About Mr. Eric
Mr. Eric has worked with kids since he was still one himself, teaching karate to youngsters at age fourteen. He started doing children's theater in Boston at age 19, and became a regular volunteer as Petey the Pirate in Marshfield, MA throughout his college years.
After graduating from BU with a Bachelor's in English, he directed the Little Gym of Brooklyn Heights, teaching gymnastics, karate, and motor skills to infants, toddlers, and grade-schoolers for five years. He was also Program Director of New York's Galli Theatre for a year, performing at several Manhattan schools and hospitals as a host of fairy tale characters. Most recently, he worked at STAR Education in Los Angeles as a preschool teacher and, after school, as assistant director to STAR's county-wide theatre program.
Now he manages a small restaurant to pay the bills and puts every ounce of extra energy into making great stories for your kids.

Goals
39 of 50 patrons
At 50 patrons we're going to invest in some better recording equipment. We never want to have to put an audio quality disclaimer in front of an episode - but with 2 dogs and a busy street it can be hard! It doesn't help that the leaf blower workers always come by our apartment building on Mr. Eric's only day off...

For now, the setup is just Mr. Eric recording into a tribble in our very-much-not-a-walk-in closet. But we're excited to get something better!
