I have been directing several scripted, fiction podcasts for kids produced by Gen-Z Media.  Current shows can be found on the About page of this site, and here are others that have been released in the past:

The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel
Written by David Kreizman, Jenny Turner Hall, Chris Tarry, and Benjamin Strouse

I directed season 2 of this scripted podcast for middle grade kids, performed by middle grade kids. Season 2 is currently available for download on the Panoply podcast network.

It is a fun, high-quality, sci-fi serial mystery. Season 1 was voted as one of the top 50 podcasts of 2016 by The Guardian, and was recently honored with a Peabody award.  Mars Patel is also a 2017 Webby Award nominee for Best Audio Drama & Best Sound Design/Original Music Score.  And it was recently optioned to be adapted for television!  The show is enjoyed around the world by kids and adults alike.
