Honestly entertaining. Diverse stories.

Burning Brigid Media is a Chicago-based production company dedicated to creating narratives that normalize stories about the traditionally marginalized: women, minority, and LGBT characters presented as people rather than genres.

Synesthesia Theatre
Our current project is an audio drama anthology podcast called Synesthesia Theatre. Each season presents a new science fiction, fantasy, or horror story performed by a full cast of talented local Chicago actors. Our first season, Iron Horses Can't Be Broken was a steampunk thriller. Our second, Cold Reboot, was a cyberpunk thriller. We are in pre-production for a third season.

Why support us?
Synesthesia Theatre is provided free, but it certainly isn't free to produce. Everyone involved has day jobs, and everyone has to continually make choices between having time to create and having money for rent, bills, and food. And while we love producing this podcast, we do end up having to make hard choices about how much we can afford to invest in its production, in both money and time. We also believe that our professional, hard-working talent deserve to get paid for their labor, just like any other kind of job. A key aspect of our mission is finding a way to make this happen.

Since you're here, we suspect you feel the same way. In order to continue creating Synesthesia Theatre, we need your help in the form of pledges to help pay for its production. For as little as one dollar per month, you can help us afford to keep creating high-quality audio entertainment, and earn some fun just-for-Patrons perks along the way.

So please, if you like us and what we're doing, support us by clicking the "become a patron" button over on the top left. We appreciate it.
