Welcome to October Isle: Creators of Point Mystic and other stories
Who are you?October Isle is a creative group founded by Christopher Reynaga and Marguerite Croft. Under this banner, we create podcasts, books and other creative projects.
In 2016, we created our first project, the independent audio drama Point Mystic with our son Fox. What started as a little show for our family to tell magical and frightening stories to each other became an Audioverse award winner and multiple award finalist featured on sites like Vox, The Mary Sue, and The Bello Collective. Even more important, it's growing into a community of fans, writers, musicians and artists inspired to build community and make art together. A community that you can be a part of.
What is Point Mystic?Point Mystic presents itself as a long-running radio show exploring stories behind the magic, mystery and the unexplained. A journalistic “This American Life” or “Radiolab” investigating the supernatural. However… this is not the whole story.
Point Mystic is also a hidden point not found on any map. It is a legendary place where a supernatural lighthouse watches over the treacherous shores of all other worlds. Point Mystic is the community that is called to this place -- a community who watches over and protects each other. Together, through these stories of magic, mystery and the unexplained, we will come to discover the secret of Point Mystic.
The world of Point Mystic touches all other worlds through its doors, and while the story and characters of Point Mystic are original, we've also gotten to interview and walk through the doorways of some of our favorite creators and their stories. Authors like Joe Hill, Steven Brust, Skyler White, and Maggie Stiefvater.
You can subscribe and check out the show here at our community homepage: http://www.pointmystic.org
Why make a Patreon?We created October Isle so we could tell our own and share other artists’ stories through a variety of mediums, including podcasts, books, and other creative storytelling forms. When you join us and become a patron, that money will directly fund our creative projects (including exciting new stories within the Point Mystic universe). Point Mystic alone costs thousands of dollars a year to produce and distribute. Your support will help us cover production costs (studio time, web hosting, podcast hosting, etc.), pay our wonderful cast and crew, and provide opportunities for other artists making cool things to share their work with the world, especially creators like ourselves who are people of color, queer, and of other marginalized groups.
We could not make this show without the support of our community, and we are so grateful to you for being a part of it. Join us, and take the journey to Point Mystic and beyond.
