What is Dead Signals?

Dead Signals is a production company dedicated to the creation of forward-thinking audio drama. Our goal is to tell tales that challenge what’s possible in sonic storytelling, and that couldn’t be told in any other medium.

In March 2016, we launched Archive 81 — our very first project. In the short time since, we’ve been featured in The GuardianWIREDThe A.V. Club, multiple iTunes editors’ lists, and an array of newsletters and fan sites. We’ve also been lucky to find a dedicated following of people who are just as hungry for innovative audio storytelling as we are.

Since then, we've launched a second original podcast, The Deep Vault, as well as started the third season of Archive 81. Both of these projects have been helped A LOT by your support.

What are we working on?


We're releasing new episodes of Archive 81! Season 3 was a lot of work, and we're very excited to share it with you. We’re also coming up with weird/wonderful/scary/transcendent ideas for new projects that you'll love. We need you to make all of these things happen!

Why Make a Patreon?

Early Archive 81 was a labor of love, long skype calls, claustrophobic bedroom-recording sessions and intensive, monastic editing marathons. We funded the entire process out-of-pocket while juggling day jobs, freelance work and many other outside commitments.

Since we started getting support on Patreon... we're still juggling day jobs, freelance work and many other outside commitments. But funding our projects has gotten a lot easier.

Listener support allowed us to make The Deep Vault and the second and third of Archive 81 weirder, longer, more immersive, and far more entertaining. It lets us hire more actors, pay them fairly, and work faster and more efficiently in bringing you an unparalleled storytelling experience. We’re able to book studio time, cover our site and RSS hosting costs, and hire help for the things we can’t do all on our own, like original artwork and graphic design.

Further support lets us continue to do those things, and it lets us expand our operations, tell more audio stories, and create more ambitious podcasts.

Basically, we have many more projects that we’re dying to share with the world, and listener support will help us to get them out to you much faster than we could otherwise.

What You’ll Get

In addition to a general fuzzy sense of goodwill you’ll get to funding great audio drama, we have a lot of rewards for our patrons, including:

  • An exclusive, patrons-only Q&A podcast in which the Dead Signals team answers all of your questions, big and small.
  • Wallpapers, sound effects, gifs, and other exciting digital assets.
  • A ten-episode audio drama. Yes, you read that right: if you back us, you get immediate access to a fully produced, fully finished sci-fi audio drama. It’s something that we worked on before we started Archive 81, and it’s only available if you back this Patreon.
  • Consultation sessions with the creators on your own stories and creative projects.

Thank You

No matter how much you pledge, you’ll be an essential part of helping us bring our vision for forward-thinking radio drama to life. We sincerely appreciate it and promise to repay you with creepy, immersive, otherworldly, exciting, and altogether entertaining sonic storytelling of the highest caliber.
