****ALL DONATIONS WILL BE REFUNDED IF GOAL IS NOT ACHIEVED****
Hi. I’m Elizabeth and a few months ago I started a podcast. It’s called "Have Mic Will Travel."
Please listen to an episode. www.havemicwilltravel.com
HMWT is a interview-based, traveling podcast. The mission of the show is to collect insight about creativity directly from creative thinkers.
My goals for the show are to build a listening audience that will enjoy a new level of understanding of the creative process and inspire people to explore their own creative ventures. I hope to uncover how the creative community is connected. Are the introspective thoughts of creative thinkers universal? Do we share the same struggles and ambitions? In order to collect a range of answers, I will travel to understand if location and environment make an impact on the creative outlook.
I'm currently posting episodes from my season in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, I'm traveling to New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego to record additional seasons. My tour through Philadelphia was my first attempt at asking guests how they reflect on their craft. My questions were directed towards success, environment, and productivity. As I embark on new cities I am refining my questions and probing topics like uncertainty and personal triumph. Not only am I developing new strategies in my research, I'm also considering my direction as the host. As an interviewer, I'm exploring new approaches to the subject matter as well as how to speak to the guests. I'm learning as I go.
Please look over the various donation amounts and make a pledge. Help the show reach its goal and travel overseas. The 'travel karma' alone will make your donation worthwhile!! The money from the campaign is strictly for airfare. Your donations will take the show to the UK and Australia this January.
As a memento of each interview, I ask my guest to sketch a self portrait. The catch is...they are only given 20 seconds to draw it. Follow Instagram and Twitter to see the growing collection of sketches as well as my journey on the road.
Please feel free to send comments or questions directly to the show.
SEND THIS PODCAST OVERSEAS IN JANUARY! The first 10 backers will receive a copy of the show's theme music.
Risks and challenges
If the campaign is successful, the major challenge will be the production calendar. I will be traveling far distances and will need to stick to a strict schedule. I will utilize my skills in event production to book guests and collect interview in a timely manner.
The element of travel is essential to HMWT. I have exhausted my own financial resources and need donations to expand the show to its full potential. The goal is to take the show abroad for an international scope on the discussion of creativity and creative practices. If the campaign is unable to reach its goal, the show will not end but will require more time to build up independent funds in order to continue moving forward.
The podcast is directed towards an audience that appreciates the first-hand perspective on being creative and making it your full time gig. These stories and experiences are valuable and could inspire others. I am very passionate about reaching people that will benefit from these interviews.
