Dear Listener,
My name is Chad Ellis and I’m one of those neurotic starving artists living in Los Angeles that you always hear about. I’ve been hard at work on Station Blue for over a year now and it’s completely changed my life. I’ve been trapped on Eldritch Mediterranean Islands and spent lonely nights in the Cascade Mountain Range gathering material for this story. I’ve met brilliant creators and fans from all over the world who inspire and drive me. I’ve spent more time in a dark closet than Harry Potter.

I love making this show. It allows me to translate my experiences with Bipolar Disorder into a piece of art that I hope builds empathy and understanding for those with mental illness. I’m either thinking about it, writing it, acting in it or burying myself in sound design for it at any given hour.

Now that Season One is finished it’s time to work on Season Two! I’m researching a bunch of new mics and recording techniques, upgrading my editing software and learning new skills to take Season Two to the next level. And I’m able to do that with help from Patrons like you.

Why Patreon?
Working takes time, podcasts cost money, and striking that balance between working just enough to cover your bills while leaving enough time to make a podcast is a TRICK. Patreon puts me in the same space with listeners who want to see the show succeed which makes that balancing act a lot easier. During Season One you covered my hosting fees and art commissions. Once we hit our next goal I’ll be able to take time off to perfect Season Two and create a Mini-Series! We’re doing a lot of fun things during the off season so that the Station Blue Community will always have something to look forward to.

As a Patron you can look forward to exclusive perks such as
  • Early releases!
  • Hours of behind the scenes episoDes!
  • An upcOming secret episode!  
  • A neat Book Club so that you can cry with me over the thing that brOught Matthew and Sarah togetheR!

If Station Blue has ever made you feel something, if you want more of it to make you feel more somethings, consider becoming a Patron. 
Let's go make some art.

Thank you so much!
