Most collectors love to show off what they’ve collected. Whether their collection is more traditional, such as stamps or coins or toys, or something more “outside the box,” there’s pride — and, almost always, an unyielding passion — driving every collector’s story.
This podcast doesn’t just focus on “the stuff.” It also shines its spotlight on the mindset of the featured collectors. With a blend of curiosity, history, and humor, For Keeps explores the things we collect — and why we do it in the first place.
I'm a writer and editor with a background in print journalism and an appreciation for the power of podcasts, conversations, and audio storytelling. In 2017, I took the plunge and began self-producing For Keeps. I hope you enjoy these episodes as much as I've enjoyed putting them together.

Oh, and here's an interview I did with MetaPod, a podcast about podcasts in July 2022.
