Hello everyone! Welcome to the Escape Artists Patreon!

ABOUT US

Escape Artists Inc. is the publishing company behind Escape PodPodCastlePseudoPod, and Cast of Wonders. Over the past decade and a half our donors and subscribers have brought you the best in free weekly audio genre fiction each and every week. Our four shows total over 2000 episodes, and reach an average of half a million listeners a month.

WHY WE'RE HERE

  • To provide a way for listeners who don't use Paypal to support us, keeping our lights on and our servers humming.
  • To continue our mission of paying everyone involved with our shows - authors, staff, and narrators.
  • We want to expand! We've started experimenting with generating non-fiction content, and we have ideas for a fifth fiction podcast. And to do it, we need your help.
Patreon gives our audience a flexible new support option, and another way for listeners and fans like you to help provide a steady source of income. Our episodes will always be available for free on our websites, but we rely on donors like you to make that happen. As always, every dime goes towards paying our creators, feeding our servers, and bringing you more great audio fiction.

We want to hear from you about what you're looking for. We started with a few different goals, and continue to refine them based on your suggestions and feedback. But they always represent the pillars of what we stand for - paying our contributors and staying true to audio publication.

THE FUTURE

Publisher and veteran nonfiction writer Alasdair Stuart, and Karen Bovenmyer, of the much-missed Mothership Zeta, are preparing some great nonfiction content, focused on introducing newcomers to the fascinating and often bumpy landscape of genre fiction with interviews, reviews and convention reports. With your help, in time they want to create a new monthly podcast helping readers and fans learn more about the industry and take their first steps into volunteerism, genre-adjacent academia, and writing professionally. This can be an overwhelming industry, especially if you're new. It's a cocktail party crossed with a minefield, moving at an unceasing pace. But don't worry, Alasdair and Karen have a plan...

$2,195 of $2,900 per month
Cover More Costs, Part One: Admin
Our shows work with an administrative team to make their lives a bit easier and to take advantage of shared efficiencies. This level will let us support ALL of those costs - everything from our amazing contract manager and accountant, our Submittable platform and hosting costs, to all the pesky necessary little stuff, like taxes and website maintenance.
