Who am I?
I'm Eric Ginsberg, a singer, songwriter, and storyteller based in Asbury Park, NJ. When I write a song, it's usually a snapshot of a bigger story or experience – an out-of-context puzzle piece of my life. Motivated to learn more about what makes other songwriters tick, I launched Song Story.

Who are you?
Someone who likes songs, podcasts, music, carbon-based life on Earth, and/or Song Story and wants to see it all continue forever and ever.

How can you help?
Song Story is a homemade labor of love, but it still costs me money to make and takes an enormous amount of my time – time that I should probably be devoting to my day job instead. But if you become a Patron of Song Story, I'll be able to afford the cost and time to keep making it.

How does it work?
Patreon is kind of like Kickstarter, except instead of funding a big project and hoping it gets made, you only get charged when I post a new episode, about once a week.

How much should you pledge?
Become a Patron at whatever per-episode amount you're comfortable pledging. You can change your pledge amount up or down at any time, and even set a monthly cap to stay within your budget. And the more you pledge, the more you get (and the more I'm able to create). See the pledge levels below:

Goals
$4 of $100 per podcast episode
As a musician, I'm using the equipment I have laying around the house. But I could really improve the audio quality of the show with a better microphone or two.
