The Story

"This Is Not What I Ordered" is a podcast that supports people in living full-hearted lives with chronic illness and other health challenges. The mission is to inspire joy and fulfillment while building connection in a community that can often feel alone in managing day-to-day medical conditions. Each episode will offer resources for spiritual and emotional development, encouragement, humor, storytelling, and support. The podcast will be available anywhere, any time, as long as you've got an internet connection. And the best part is... it's free!

Successfully launching a podcast means a significant investment of time, love, and energy from me (Lauren!) as the host, producer, and publicist. There is also a substantial financial component to making this project really happen. Here are some of the expenses:

Audio/recording equipment -- Professional editing for each episode -- Podcast website and email hosting -- Graphic design & art for logo and podcast cover -- Marketing & advertising -- Stock photos/videos/image licensing for promotion

Season One was a full-hearted success funded by listener-fans like YOU!

Now it's time to raise funds for Season Two and I am SO excited to share these next episodes with you. Beginning in August, you'll hear more interviews full of depth and wisdom with awesome guests living with health challenges, along with these exciting additions:

- Powerful interview video clips
- Beautiful music incorporated throughout episodes
- Heartwarming couples interviews
- Fully transcribed episodes for accessibility
- Interviews on-location for a more personal feel (like you're in the room with us!)

Even a few dollars makes a big difference in helping sustain "This Is Not What I Ordered" as a powerful, accessible storytelling platform that uplifts those living with health challenges!
