Motivating Giraffe on Reddit’s Upvoted Podcast


Something a little bit different today. A little while back I was contacted by the guys over at Reddit’s Upvoted podcast and they expressed an interest in featuring Motivating Giraffe and myself on one of their episodes. Reddit is really where Motivating Giraffe was born so I was super excited to be part of something so cool.

So if you’re interested in hearing me talk a little bit about depression, art and the origins of Motivating Giraffe, check out the link below:


My section starts at 19 minutes (and goes for about 15 minutes), but if you have the time I’d urge you to check out the rest of the episode too!

Thanks so much, everyone, for your support and love throughout all of this. I hope you all are well and I’ll be back with some new giraffes next week :)

  2. Penny, that is so awesome! I know I always say this, but I am so proud of you. You are not only an inspiration to so many others, but just such a kind person. So deserving of all of your successes through your hard work and dedication.
    Your art has given motivation and pleasure to so many, as I am sure it does to you as well. I always will say this…and always send my love and wish you all the best as you continue your journey.

    (Also advocating about depression, I did not forget that..I was so excited I did not listen yet <3 just you are all around ohh ..big hugs )

  3. Cool… something for me to look forward to for the weekend. I’ll have to come back here and make a proper comment after I’ve given the podcast a listen!

  4. Not everyone has the power and strength to talk about depression, stigma around being mentally unwell, and even the risk of suicide whilst making those who listen feel safe and unashamed… Thank you so much for what you’re doing, not only with your book and website, but through interviews such as this one. Truly inspirational.
