Strange Familiars is creating Strange Familiars podcast

patrons

We're trying to create something unique. A paranormal podcast that tells stories through a combination of historical research, witness interviews, discussion, and on-site recordings when possible. 

We make the entire things ourselves, with the help of some kind friends - from designing the logo to the research to the background music - it's all us. The first episode took something like 20 hours of work behind the scenes - that's not counting composing and recording the music or getting the witness interviews on tape. 

So, it takes time, and it takes money, and we could use your help. 

We're putting the podcasts out there for free. It's the way it's done of course, and we understood that going into this adventure. However, with your help we can make sure that Strange Familiars not only continues - but we can make it bigger and better. More shows. More on location recordings. More of everything we do.

For our patrons we have added bonus content, including full patron-only shows.  We also have some physical rewards - pinback buttons, stickers, and t-shirts at different levels. 

Thank you so much for your consideration. If you can help, please do.
