The whole Suffer the Little Children blog and podcast entity is a one-person operation. I’m not a reporter, a social worker, or a certified expert. I’m just a single mom with two kids of my own. A few things converged to lead me to start the blog a little over a year ago: my love of children, my compulsive need to write, my habit of doing a frankly insane amount of research for everything I write, my fascination with the psychology of crime, and my desire to raise awareness of child abuse and give its victims back their voices. 

During quarantine, I’ve been able to devote myself full-time to the podcast and the blog. As of right now Suffer the Little Children is very much a labor of love. I do it all myself -- writing, recording, editing, mixing, mastering, artwork, publishing, distribution; you name it. I also pay for all of the costs involved in the show out of my pocket and work ridiculous hours, days, nights, weekends, and holidays, to produce new episodes each week in addition to writing blog posts as often as possible, bringing to light new cases as well as frequent updates on stories I’ve already covered. In order to maintain the quality of the show, including in-depth research, sound equipment, and the ability to continue devoting myself full-time to the podcast and the blog, I am humbly asking for supporters willing to pledge whatever they can afford to help keep Suffer the Little Children a free, weekly show and frequently updated blog.
 
If you are unable to pledge monthly, I can also accept one-time donations via PayPal at sufferthelittlechildren.pod@gmail.com
 
Thank you to all of my listeners; I appreciate each and every one of you!
If you become a patron to Suffer the Little Children, you’ll immediately get access to as many as 0 patron-only posts.

(Almost) Full Time Podcaster/Blogger

$3,000 per month

All donated funds will go toward allowing me to devote myself full-time to Suffer the Little Children, both the podcast and the blog, without the necessity of working another full-time job to support myself and my own two children. Each blog post takes anywhere from several hours to days to produce, and each episode of the podcast takes even longer. Keeping the podcast a free, weekly show with the same level of research isn't possible without having the ability to devote myself to it on a full-time basis. $3,000 a month would allow me to continue working on the blog and the podcast while maintaining a part-time job.

    I am a 56 year old grandmother of one beautiful boy. As someone who was severely sexually, physically and emotionally assaulted by my natural father, uncle and older brother, I can tell you first hand how devastating abuse is. I have suffered depression, CPTSD, anxiety all my life. My longest relationship was 2 years and that's how i fell pregnant with my daughter. To this day, i can't stand anyone too close to me, either physically or emotionally. Thank you for telling these stories
