Travis Jonker and I (Colby Sharp) decided we'd like to try our hand at creating an on demand audio show centered around children's literature. With the generous support of a friend we were able buy some equipment, fly to New York City, interview a bunch of awesome people, and make a show. 

We have fell in love with this medium and we want to create more. Producing a high quality audio show that brings something to the world of kid lit is something that we believe adds to the community, and we want to raise the bar.

We aren't trying to make a bunch of money off of this project. Our goal is find great stories to share with the world. 

If we are able to go over our goal of $2000, the additional money will be used to continue to upgrade our equipment, so that we can make the best show possible. 

Risks and challenges

Travis and I both work full time and have young children at home. With our busy lives during the school year it makes the most sense to complete this audio show during the summer. We'll spend the school year figuring out a topic for Season 2 and schedule the travel and interviews, but we won't begin recording until the summer.
