Earlier this summer I wrote on this blog about my daughter meeting Laverne Cox. The post went kind of viral. I heard from a lot of reporters interested in the story. I gave a lot of interviews. My daughter even gave an interview (her first!) to Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls website. (She rocked it!)
A note for anyone interested in supporting my podcast: I just signed up for a website called Patreon. It’s designed to support independent artists like me, and it lets you pledge a small amount (like a dollar or a few bucks) each time I produce a new episode. (I’m only planning to produce one episode per month, and you can set a monthly maximum so I don’t drain your bank account!) I created a little animation on the Patreon website to explain how it works – and to give a little background on the podcast. Even if you don’t end up pledging, you might enjoy watching the cartoon!
