Update #2

Hi wonderful Fundly supporters!

It's been a robust year, and we produced five shows with your support -- providing funding for equipment, director stipends, as well as editing and production services. The resulting shows (which you can find wherever you listen to podcasts) include: Just as Special, Creature Connection, Sticky Rice, Recruited, and Good Flavas. We also offered a stipend and equipment for the production Skin Hunger, and with our own team developed a new show interviewing women of color podcasters in Colorado. It's called From the Margins to the Center, and it featured interviews with instructors and participants of our 2020 podcast Incubator.

We have continued to run select programs, such as our most recent Story Slingshot, which crammed 20 hours of instruction into one weekend, with our participants each producing unique non-narrated pieces in 2.5 days.

AMPED will carry on targeted and innovative programming over the next year and beyond, but we are wrapping up this fundraiser for the time being.

Thank you for your contributions, and don't forget to listen to the beautiful shows you all helped bring to life.

Cat + the AMPED team

Update #1

Hello incredible Fundly funders! We wanted to offer you an update on how the program is progressing!

Karen, Nikki, Dr. Beau, and Natasha are all gearing up to launch their episodes, and Maileen has been producing loads of incredible content. You can hear some of their thoughts about the program here ->, and we will include updated links to all of their shows in our next update. We have also been able to hire one of the program mentors to join our team - permanently! She will be directing future iterations of the program, which is VERY COOL.

Without your support, we wouldn't have been able to offer funding and production services to help program participants get their shows off the ground, so here is a big, BIG THANK YOU to helping us get to where we are today.

We will also be launching a NEW PODCAST to tell more producer stories behind the scenes - so stay tuned, we're just getting started.

Will love and respect,
