How did your podcast come to be?
I had the honor of being selected as a finalist for Spotify's SoundUp Kids and Family podcast accelerator program in 2022. Through this program, I received valuable support and feedback while creating my show "What's Poppin" Penny?" which centers around a loving and supportive family that models healthy emotional regulation. The concept for Penny and her family was born out of my own desire as a child for a show that could help me navigate my emotions and normalize big feelings. It's a show that I wish had been available when I was growing up.
