What inspired you to make this project?:
I have wanted to do a kid's story podcast ever since I worked as a preschool teacher. I tried to find good stories to play for the kids during quiet time. Then, I started telling stories to my nephew over Skype where he got to tell me what he wanted the story to be about each week. Meanwhile, my sister and I would sneakily talk about whatever his big concerns happened to be in school or in life that week, and I'd always try to "miraculously" sneak in a related lesson. With a MASSIVE amount of help from my amazing wife Karen, we turned that loose idea into "What If World"!
