Want another season of bipolar schizophrenic in a podcast with Howard and me, Michelle Hammer?
People with bipolar and schizophrenia aren’t usually seen on mainstream networks because they like to invest in doctors and medical type people.
But who invests in the patient’s voice?
We need you!
If you support your Indiegogo campaign, you get a lot of really awesome stuff.
One of them is this crowdfund-only gold awesome shirt designed by me.
Gabe and I are up to work for another season completely for free, but we have to pay other people otherwise we’re kind of…dicks.
Those podcasting services need their money also.
If you kindly don into our campaign, I promise that season four will be the best season ever!
Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!
Lots of podcasts are hosted by doctors and other mental health professionals. The podcasting space is filled with them because that is who major networks often hire. But who is helping to elevate the patient voice?
Short answer? They’re counting on you.
What We Need & What You Get
In order to have a Season 4 (they’ve done over 100 episodes in the past six years), which will consist of 10 brand spanking new episodes, they need to raise $5,500. This money will only go to the cost of production, hosting, and paying for perks, shipping, and associated fundraising fees. Gabe and Michelle are working for free!
And listen, one of the perks is a 10-minute guest spot on the show. They have a one-of-a-kind exclusive BSP shirt designed by Michelle. There is awesome stuff — would you expect anything less?
And, of course, you also get 10 more episodes of A Bipolar, a Schizophrenic, and a Podcast.
People living with mental illness deserve to have the opportunity to share their struggles, feelings, and successes in whatever way feels organic to them. Vulnerability isn’t about using the right words or phrases, it’s about simply sharing your truth. Gabe and Michelle have been doing that for years and despite rising costs, they have done all they can to continue.
Aside from the impact to the greater mental health community, Gabe and Michelle have shared that this is meaningful to them, as well. As long time listeners of the show know, they have had their ups and down. But just like bipolar disorder, they are always come back to the middle and find each other.
