Savage Support Stories

 Savage Support Stories is a monthly podcast coinciding with our newsletter, highlighting the impact and work of our organization. We began in 2020 by interviewing beneficiaries of Savage Support to share their stories in a hope to share their journeys. We have since expanded into the support network and the services we utilize.

Our podcasts are created and produced by Colleen DuVall, a freelance writer with a Master’s in Digital Communication Strategies from Marquette University. She also has an intriguing background in filmmaking, acting, directing and art.

Colleen earned her bachelor’s in journalism and her master’s in digital communication at Marquette University. Her work has been published in Bella Grace Magazine, Unity College of Maine, Taste of Home, Watcher Junior (The Undergraduate Journal of Buffy​+), Milwaukee Magazine, Shepherd Express, Backlog Magazine, Riverwest Currents, Wisconsin Natural Resources, and The Washington Heights Highlighter. She has published a children’s book she wrote and illustrated about a little ghost named, “Sidney,” available at, Amazon, and Lion’s Tooth bookstore. Colleen has also written and produced for Wisconsin Public Radio, and the Office of Marketing and Communication at MU. Other podcasts she’s worked on, and hosts include, “We Are Marquette,” and “Women Who Howl at the Moon.”

The musical Colleen co-wrote, “Shining in Misery: A King-Size Parody,” debuted to rave reviews and sold-out houses in the World Premiere Wisconsin theatre festival, at the Overture Center in Madison. On May 8th, they’ll be taking their show for a special concert performance to 54 Below in NYC! Besides writing, directing, and producing plays and short films, Colleen has acted for theater, film, and local commercials. She regularly performs and teaches acting classes for MKE Rec and their Halloween Glen annual event.

Colleen’s specialties include Journalism, podcasting, audio editing, radio broadcasting, creative writing, directing, acting, coaching, operations management, training.

We are grateful for Colleen’s contributions to our organization and giving a voice to our beneficiaries and the community of support.
