I am the creator and host of "Disaster Area," a podcast about disasters and tragedies throughout history. I have always been interested in things like shipwrecks and plane crashes, how they're caused, and how people survive them. So I decided to start doing a podcast about disasters in December of 2015. 

I do a lot of research for each episode, whether it be news articles and reports on YouTube, documentaries, books, official reports from federal agencies, or other sources. Sometimes these sources cost a few bucks, so a little help could always help. I try to touch on as many details of the disaster as possible, from the initial stages to the aftermath and its impact on the victims. I will be covering everything from plane crashes, building fires, and shipwrecks to collapses, plagues, hurricanes, and mass shootings.

I also do a "Movie Break" episode every fifth episode to break up the seriousness and have a little fun. In these episodes, I'll be discussing the disaster movie genre, whether it be specific movies like "The Poseidon Adventure" or tropes such as gender disparity or the "dueling disaster movies" of the late '90s. I love fictional disasters as much as I'm interested in real ones, so I'll be knocking back a hard root beer or two and talking about my favorite movies of all time.

I'm looking for patrons to assist with producing the podcast and to help with everyday stuff like bills and groceries so I can focus on putting out more episodes. What I'd love to do is cut down on my work hours to focus on both writing and producing the podcast, but I'd appreciate any help I can get.

Exactly what it sounds like. You pick the disaster, I’ll do the research and make the episode. (I do reserve the right to turn down a disaster and ask for a different option, but I haven’t done so yet.)
Goals
$108 of $150 per Episode
I'm attempting to reach $150 an episode to make it easier for me to devote my time to the podcast full-time. If I'm able to reach that amount, I may be able to begin traveling to different disaster sites and writing up how they're doing now.
