Milestone Goals

reached
Buy a professional mic and preamp setup for one cohost
$250 per month
We'll have what it takes to supply one of our co-hosts with a professional home studio setup.
Buy a professional mic and preamp setup for all of our cohosts
$500 per month
We'll have what it takes to supply every single one of our co-hosts with a professional home studio setup. Audio quality will shoot through the roof and your listening pleasure will be that much greater.
Ads disappear!
$666 per month
When we reach this monthly goal, there's no longer any valid reason for us to run ads on the site. They will vanish and stay vanished!
Live streams are coming back!
$718 per month
Running a live stream was an expensive and often complicated arrangement. However; if we are up on $718 per month that will no longer be a problem. We'll have a live broadcast of the shows as they're being recorded (where applicable) and might even throw in a couple of live streams with webcam video of the hosts as they're recording their shows!
Free movies!
$888 per month
Once we reach this level, for every episode of Movieing On that we publish, we will be giving away one free DVD or Blu-Ray to one of our listeners!
Breki's Bumbling Banalities!
$1,000 per month
Breki will launch a solo show - "Breki's Bumbling Banalities" or something similar - where he updates the listeners about various behind-the-scenes activities at the CSICON Network, random thoughts regarding content creation and creativity and being productive and efficient in the digital age. Expect an unfiltered stream of consciousness published on irregular intervals.
We'll buy a planet!
$1,234 per month
We kid you not. We're going to buy a planet. Or at least name one. Somewhere.
Everybody gets paid!
$2,500 per month
We will start paying all the hosts on the CSICON Network $25 per appearance. It's a modest sum, but considering the amount of hosts and the sheer amount of episodes we publish every week, it's still a pretty good start. The goal is to raise this to $50 over time.
No More Ads and Sponsorships
$3,000 per month
At this level, we'll stop running all ads and sponsorships on the shows that we publish. Some might continue for a bit after this level has been reached due to agreements and prior deals, but no sponsorships and advertisement deals will be renewed.
Full Time for Breki
$5,000 per month
Breki can leave his day job to focus on CSICON and its business development full time. This will mean many new podcasts, many new events, and lots of great new content!
CSICON TV
$7,500 per month
Since people obviously can't get enough of us, we'll be launching a television network alongside the podcasting network. New shows, new hosts, new territories to conquer.

Who are you?
I’m Breki Tomasson. I'm the guy that launched CSICON and one of the many people creating content for the site.

So what’s all this, then?
This is Patreon, a crowdfunding platform for independent artists.

Ah! It’s like Kickstarter!
Well, kind of. You're right that it is like Kickstarter in that fans pledge money to a number of artists so that they can make stuff. The difference, instead, is that instead of pledging a large sum of money at once, fans pledge a small amount of money for a more consistent stream of things.

Kickstarter asks for money first and then uses it to make a big thing. With Patreon, the artist asks for money after the thing is already made. Think of it as a tip for a job well done.

How often do you publish new podcast episodes?
Almost daily. Some days - Sundays, for example - we publish multiple episodes of multiple podcasts. Other days - like Tuesdays - we really don't have all that much to offer you.

Why would I do this when I can just listen to your podcasts for free?
That's the crux of the matter, right? We're all podcasters because we love doing it, so we'd probably continue to it even if we weren't getting paid for it - Patreon isn't going to change that. However, we work surprisingly hard to produce content that you like, and Patreon offers a way for you to throw us a little something for our time and effort. The more money we earn in this way, the less time we have to spend chasing other sources of revenue and can focus on what it is we love doing - creating more content!

Hell; if we get enough money from Patreon, we could leave our part-time or full-time jobs and focus entirely on creating great content for you guys out there! It's a win-win situation! We'd get paid for doing things we love doing and you'd get the fruits of our labor for a low monthly cost! Sign up for a dollar or more today! You won't regret it!
