The Mind Reels is a Canadian blog/podcast which focuses primarily on pop culture and entertainment – film, television, books, and more. Formed in October 2011 as a way of giving ourselves an online venue in which we could discuss some of the things we love, we rapidly found ourselves interviewing the directing, acting and writing talent behind many of those  very things and more!  We then went on to join a video podcast channel, break a Guinness World Record, moderate celebrity panels at a comic convention, and host our own awards for Canadian film and TV!  We have even begun to add new content beyond standard interviews to our podcast show - for example, our Ole Timey Radio Play segments, featuring classic radio play scripts from the 30's and 40's, as performed by Canadian talent, all of which is now becoming available on our new SoundCloud account!

We love what we do. Our casual interview style allows our creative and talented guests to share their own passions with us and with our audience. We have been extremely lucky with the opportunities which have been afforded to us, and we are eager to do even more. While our podcast will always be free for the public to enjoy, there are costs and time associated with producing each episode, and those add up quickly.  Thus far, we've been paying for everything out of pocket, so our first goal is to cover the costs which we already accrue, and then build on it all from there.  We are growing.  We want you to share more fully in this journey with us, and become an even bigger part of our continued success as we strive to do more.  We want to see just how far we can take this, together, with you.

We feel that, for $4 a month, you should feel more involved with the process of creating our show, so you will be given a Patron-only email Suggestion Box, where you can send us your ideas, suggestions, feedback, questions, requests for content - whatever you like - and we will choose some at random to be responded to on the show for each month of your Patronage!

And, if you are on Twitter, one Twitter shout-out from the official @mindreels account will come your way for each month you are a Patron, too!

Also includes all lower tier level rewards!

Five of your hard-earned dollars each month gets you an entry into a draw for the chance to ask a question during one interview episode for each month of your sponsorship at this level!

Not only that, you will also receive a #FF mention on Twitter from the official @mindreels account on one Friday during each month of your patronage!

This tier level earns you the chance to vote in a poll to choose which radio play script we'll perform next, each month for which you are a Patron!  Now you're really starting to have some power over the content we provide for you!

Ten dollars a month?!  You have no idea how much this means to us!  But in an attempt to convey our immense gratitude, you will be named as an Official Presenter for one episode for each month of your patronage!  We'll basically say something like, "Tonight's episode is presented to you by..." and insert your name, or a name/company/brand of your choice!  Every month!

Also includes all lower tier level rewards!
Pledge $15 or more per month
2 patrons
We recognize that $15 is a lot of money to dish out every month, and so for that, we want to reward you as much as possible!  For this tier level of Patronage, you will receive private links which will grant you unlimited access to the FULL video footage of Mind Reels episodes!  This footage is not viewable by the public once it disappears from LiveStream, as it goes well beyond the abridged versions of interview episodes which get posted on YouTube.  We will send you a compilation of links for each episode from the beginning of the month in which you become a Patron, and then follow up with new links for all episodes filmed during each month of your Patronage at this level!

Also includes all lower tier level rewards!  All of them!!!  Named as Official Presenter one episode each month, the chance to vote in a poll for which radio play we do next, entry into a draw to ask a question of a guest we interview, #FF on Twitter, access to Patron-only email suggestion box, Twitter shout-out, Patron-only preview of upcoming episodes, events and the like, Twitter follow, your name on the Patreon page of the Mind Reels site, and our heartfelt thanks!  

All that and more, included for each month of your sponsorship at this level or above!
Goals
$54 of $100 per month
Reaching this goal would not only cover the monthly costs we already accrue (and currently pay out of pocket), but would also allow us to make a few necessary upgrades - to the blog page itself, and also in the form of new up-to-date business cards, and increased storage levels.  Once all of that's taken care of, we could start making strides toward having a greater public reach overall!
