How did you come up with the idea for What If World?
After moving to LA, I started telling weekly stories over Skype to my nephew back in Boston. He'd give me a topic and make up a story. I'd also talk to his mom and try to sneak in a lesson he was learning that week.
Some folks suggested I post the stories on YouTube, but it felt like intruding on my family's private life. I also didn't think the visual component was all that vital. The call-in podcast felt like a great way to let kids feel involved, make parents feel safe, and share my brand of stories with a wider audience.
