The Townies Podcast®

From Kim Maxwell Studio

Welcome to The Townies Podcast: Something like a mix between The Moth and Prairie Home Companion... if Lake Woebegone were real.

A home-grown kind of storytelling podcast.

If you are looking for places to donate to victims of this devastating fire, we would like to direct you to the following organizations that are providing relief to affected people all across the communities of Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties:


100% of proceeds goes directly to the fund. United Way of Ventura County, United Way of Santa Barbara County, the American Red Cross of Ventura County and the Ventura County Sheriff's office of Emergency Services have formed a strategic partnership that will be vital in helping the community recovery.  Text UWVC to 41444 or click the link below to donate.


The Mixteco/Indigenous Community Organizing Project (MICOP) has been instrumental in providing and advocating for invaluable translation services for Spanish-speaking residents. They are also acquiring and distributing masks to vulnerable communities, including but not limited to our area's farmworkers who continue to work in the fields even in these toxic air conditions.
