Hello!! My name is Robin and I do a weekly podcast called Pod Your Own Adventure!

If you're here there's a good chance you know what this podcast is about. If you don't, here's the elevator pitch. Each episode a guest and I read through a different multiple-path gamebook. I do the reading, the guests make the choices, and we both provide jokes and insight. It's a lot of fun to record, and I have received confirmation from more than one person that it's fun to listen to as well!

This is the bit where I'd like your help. I've got a fairly sizeable collection of books, but the amount I can read gets smaller with each episode that comes out. I'd like to buy better recording equipment, and I'd like to record more episodes face to face instead of over Skype.

I've had a lot of great guests on so far. People like Damian Sommer - co-creator of The Yawhg, Ryan North - writer of Dinosaur Comics and the Adventure Time comic books, and Jon Blyth - writer and part of the Regular Features podcast. Your support means I'll be able to travel more frequently and record with more people.

I've turned to Patreon because, considering the alternatives, I feel this is the most honest option. Patreon allows you to pledge your support with each episode that comes out. Simply choose a value, and when an episode is released every Tuesday the website automatically sends that money through to me. I'm just one guy, and some of the things I'd like to do with this show are going to take more than a little time to prepare. Like live shows! It's only with your support that I'll be able to put these together.

If you choose to support, thank you! You'll be able to vote on upcoming books for us to read through on the show. Not only that, but I'll be starting a Democracy Adventure. At the end of future updates I will be reading out a passage from a book, and if you pledge weekly then you can vote on where the story goes. You'll also get priority access to all future live shows, I'll let you know one week in advance before the event goes live to everyone.

If you would like to donate more, fantastic! For five dollars a week, I will do a dramatic reading for you. Send me a message and every couple of weeks I'll be happy to read whatever you want out. Fan-fiction, voice-overs, marriage proposals. I'll do most of it! (within reason - I reserve the right to turn down some stuff).

Don't worry about the show. I'm not going to put it behind a paywall or create premium content that only patrons can see. I'm going to keep doing what I've always been doing, but with your help I'll be able to do more!

I'll make a periodic video series where I answer any burning questions you have. They can range from the nature of interactive fiction to how I felt about the series finale of your favourite anime.
