Join  the “Aguayo Ayllu” to get ‘bonus’ episodes and support the Production of

“Weaving the Blanket” and “Tejiendo el Aguayo”

“Ayllu” means “Supportive Community”. Joining the Aguayo Ayllu is a way to support the production of both the English and Spanish versions of this podcast/broadcast. We currently have 30 weekly podcasts scheduled which will be broadcast over the next 7 months.

Becoming a member of the Ayllu will give you exclusive access to Ayllu only bonus podcasts through the website. I will have one to two bonus broadcasts each month. These bonus podcasts will include such things as: full or edited audio or videointerviews; oral reactions and responses by the one whose story I’ve told; and additional ‘in-depth’ information on the topic of the main podcast.

You will also be supporting the cost of producing these podcasts.

Surprisingly, at least to me, producing these two broadcasts have been fairly expensive. So far I’ve spent over $7,000 to cover setting up websites, purchasing software and hardware to do quality recording and editing, translation, and one trip to Bolivia to gather more stories. (An accounting of these costs is available upon request.)

For a minimum gift of $10/month (we will cancel the monthly payments once the anticipated 7-months of broadcasting is completed)  or a one-time gift of $70 or more, you can become a member of the Ayllu of Weaving the Blanket, support this program, and I will send you a password to gain access to the bonus podcasts.

I’ve been retired for over 3 years and it has been a bit of a challenge. If you would like to help support this project which will be in both an English/North American version, and a Spanish/Bolivian version. I sure would appreciate it.

A gift of $10/month or of any amount would be deeply appreciated.

Thank-you for your support.
