Hey Super friends, I’m Kevin Gallagher!

I wear many hats—partner, father, manager, podcaster, writer, filmmaker, editor, event planner, and more. When it comes to being a content creator, most of my work is done in the podcasting world; but you can find me tinkering in other areas too.

I host Everything is Awesome, a long-form conversational podcast where I sit down and talk to awesome people about awesome things. I also host (after a bumpy start) the After Party of One podcast, a recap podcast about Jeff Stormer’s Party of One. I’ll also be taking up hosting duties on two more projects this year, In Character with Kevin Gallagher—a multi-dimensional interview show, where I sit and speak with guests from your favorite pop culture moments—and Single Player, an actual play podcast focused on one-player role-playing experiences.

I also run the That’s Entertainment Podcast Network, where we have shows from other great creators that span different genres. The purpose of that network is to offer a platform to those with a voice who may have trouble finding a way to share it.

I like to push the boundaries of what podcasting is. It’s not just a listening experience when you’re at the gym, going on a long drive, or cleaning the house. They can be so much more and are wonderful things to experience LIVE. I produce and run live events through the Philadelphia (and sometimes New York) area, with our featured event being an annual festival ran every January to raise money for organizations that help families affected by cancer. In 2019, we raised $781 for the HEADstrong Foundation with 24 total podcasts and 20+ comedians across four different venues with minimal issues.

I’ve dabbled in writing and directing, hosting panels at conventions (when I’m not covering them for the press), game design, wrestling (though I am currently retired), and a plethora of other things.

That’s what this Patreon is meant to help support me with—not just continuing to do all these amazing and fun things; but to do them better. To do more of them. To really take what I’ve learned in the last 11 and a half years of podcasting, live events, 20 years of wrestling, writing, entertaining, etc. and take it to the next level. And to do it alongside of you.

Funds will help me cover growing hosting fees and equipment costs, start bigger projects and look at new opportunities, and allow me to pay contributors (editors, writers, artists, etc.) to make these projects even better.

I don’t want to just take your money though. Here’s what I have planned for people willing to subscribe to my Patreon:

  • Early access to podcasts, project notes, scripts, footage, and everything else that I make.
  • Advice videos/blogs about podcasting and producing live events. I’ve been podcasting since July of 2007 and have learned a lot along the way that may help save you time. I’ve been producing events since 2003 when I helped organize Falls Township Wrestling shows and continue to that that with semi-regular podcasting events (we’re moving to a monthly schedule soon, on top of our annual festival and fundraiser).
  • Exclusive access to special Everything is Awesome channels on our new Discord server. Here, we can talk about different projects, collaborations, help motivate one another, and more.
  • I’ll stop ranting publicly about ideas I have and start sharing my first look ideas, scripts, audio bits, etc. with you.

Patreon will work as both subscription service to everything I work on and a space to share experiences, crazy projects, and whatever else comes up. As a patron, you get to see that stuff first, help shape it, and (this is the best part) bring it to life.

For the last few years, I’ve been trying to build off brands instead of my own brand. None of the things that I do happen without Kevin Gallagher. With your support, we can make 2019 a pretty great year.

It will also include original short stories, comics, and more from collaborators, as well as a "Yearbook" section that lists everyone that has supported us over the past year.

EARLY ACCESS
$5 or more per month

Backers at this tier will get early access to all of my projects. Any podcast that I am an editor and on-air contributor for will be made available to you as early as possible. More times than not, these will be unedited, mixed down files (so, there will be content that won't make it to the final edit, no music, and potential audio drift issues). Early access will also include any major writing pieces, video projects, and other things that have my direct involvement.

AWESOME 101
$10 or more per month

 I have been doing creative things all my life—heck, most of us have. Though, for whatever reason(s), many of us face a fork in the road and choose another direction. I've been telling stories in some fashion for over 20 years. It started with professional wrestling (writing entire shows and my own personal story in the ring), continued to short stories and unpublished novels, and keeps on going in new media (primarily podcasting and original videos). If you subscribe at this tier, I'll share my experiences. From putting on live events, editing podcasts, networking, computer repair, Photoshop, all the things you don't think of, and more; I'll share blogs, videos, conduct Q&A's and more to share my story to help you tell your own stories.


You'll receive:

  • Audio Thank You (at least once a year)
  • Discord Access
  • First Looks
  • Everything is Awesome Annual PDF
  • Early Access to projects
  • Content Creator advice, Q&A's, and more!
Includes Discord rewards
T-SHIRT CLUB
$25 or more per month

One of the things I've never been able to let go of from my wrestling days is the idea of t-shirts! It's one of the best ways wrestlers can promote themselves and earn a living and it's just AWESOME to see people wearing your logo or creation on their chest. Supporting us at this tier gets you into the official That's Entertainment t-shirt club (the next best club to any bullet, vigilante, or alpha club that may or may not exist). You'll have first crack at new t-shirts before they launch in the store (if you back at this tier, we'll automatically send it to you) and we'll sprinkle in Patreon Exclusive shirts throughout the year. While I'd love to promise monthly shirts, that's A LOT. In 2019, we'll be starting with 6 new shirts throughout the year. That doesn't mean you may not find a few surprises sent to your door on those off months, so keep your eyes posted for packages from me even when there is no new shirt revealed.


You'll receive:

  • Audio Thank You (at least once a year)
  • Discord Access
  • First Looks
  • Everything is Awesome Annual PDF
  • Early Access to projects
  • Content Creator advice, Q&A's, and more!
  • Six Patreon First or Exclusive shirt designs in 2019

Goals
$4 of $50 per month
This first goal allows me to cover all the fees associated with hosting not just Everything is Aweome, That's Entertainment, Crude Humor Studios, and my personal site, but allows me upgrade some things for better statistics and social media marketing. If I hit this goal, I'll sit down with our co-host for live shows, Mike DeAngelo, for a look back at our creative endeavours for the last 20 years.
