Hi! Welcome to the Station Blue Patreon!
My name is Chad Ellis. Good to see you! Let me tell you about my podcast, my goals for the future and this Patreon.

First of all, what is Station Blue?
Station Blue is a fictional podcast about a 20 something burnout who takes a mysterious job working alone in Antarctica. It's an isolation horror that uses story telling, atmosphere and suspense to deliver the frights. Think of it like a mix of The Thing and Fight Club. 
I love what Podcasting does for horror. It's intimate, no theater full of people gasping, screaming, laughing, it's just you and your headphones, an experience free from outside judgement. And it's personal, I supply the voices and story but you decide what they look like, who they are. This makes for an immersive experience and a powerful connection with the characters. If I've done my job right you'll be able to transport yourself from your daily activities straight to a lonely research station at the bottom of the world, just by pressing play!

Goals for the future!
Station Blue is a Three Season show.
First on the list is to finish Season One of Station Blue. That's 10 episodes, about 3 hours frigid Antarctic audio. Towards the end of that process I'll be writing and planning Season Two -if you think Season One is good wait until you hear what I can do with some actual experience under my belt. All the while I'll be saving my pennies to upgrade my audio equipment and get some soundproofing (I write, record and edit the show in closets and bedrooms on one mic) I like investing in my own stuff, that way I'm less susceptible to production hiccups when life swoops in to wreck everything. Plus it allows me to not only make my own shows faster, but also produce shows for exciting budding Audio Dramatists who's voices need to be heard!

Why become a Patron?
I'm not going to tell you that I "need your help to keep the lights on", that "podcasting is expensive and without you I can't keep making the show." Podcasting IS expensive, but I'm thrifty, crafty 
and passionate about this show. I can commit to picking up an extra shift a month to make sure that all canon episodes stay FREE for EVERYONE FOREVER. I'm going to find a way to make it with or without funds. I love writing it, I love sound design, I LOVE the community.
I want to get you in on the process. I want you to be behind the scenes with me. 
As a Patron you're going to get access to the Station Blue Discord server (it's a chatroom) I'm going to answer your questions, show you what the process of making the show is like, share influential books and movies... it's going to be a conversation between you and me.
Those who toss in a few dollars more are going to get two Patron exclusive shows a month.

Behind the Door
 gives you an episode by episode creator commentary of Station Blue. Want to know the complaint EVERY voice actor had? Character backgrounds? What went wrong? This is your show.
Chasing Fear is a freeform storytelling podcast where I tell you the true stories that inspired the fictional events of Station Blue. I spent six months hiking from Mexico to Canada. I've slept on haunted grounds under the North Star. I used to be a Priest. I've had a pretty crazy life and I'm going to get real vulnerable and real silly.

There are other neat things you earn with your Patronage (check them out in the sidebar) And as we hit our goals the perks will expand!

If Station Blue has ever made you feel something, if it has entertained you, inspired you, connected with you, consider becoming a Patron. Join me in bringing this experience to the masses. 

Let's go make some art.
