Friends! I'm Thessaly Lerner, podcast producer/storyteller and during the Pandemic I recorded 15 hours of interviews with hippie icon/original beatnik/activist-visionary, WAVY GRAVY, about his life story. I'm crafting a 10 hour audio documentary (narrative podcast) weaving Wavy's incredible & historic stories with narration, music and more. It's a DEEP Dive into Wavy's life, with focus on his childhood, Beatnik years (with Bob Dylan, Tiny Tim, etc..), Comedy Pioneer life (with Lenny Bruce, Del Close...), Activist life (with Abbie Hoffman...) and of course Hippie Icon life (Woodstock, Hog Farm, Merry Pranksters, Music Icon Friendships with Janis, Jerry, Mama Cass, Sly, Jackson Brown, Joan C. Baez and so many more...)
Making a narrative podcast of this caliber takes a production budget. If you love Counter Culture American History & the inspiring, iconic, hilarious Wavy Gravy, you will love American Prankster the podcast. It's revolutionary to share stories of kindness, joy & comedy activism on a global scale in the podcast space. Help me share Wavy's story of epic humanity, history & hilarity.
If all of Wavy's fans give a tidbit for the production budget, we can raise this dough-rey-mi (as Wavy says) quickly and I can pay the expenses related to production and YOU can listen to the series soon!
Production Budget is 30k but I've already raised some douhg-rey-mi. Any over-fundraising will go towards production of Psychedelic Women: Conversations with Women of the Counter Culture, the series I'll make after AMERICAN PRANKSTER: Wavy Gravy's Life Story audio documentary.
To The Downfall of Evil & Towards the Fun!
