About Austin Rich

My name is Austin Rich. Since 1993 I've been writing and making Zines, and in the years since I have taken up music, radio, blogging, and podcasts. Over the last 30 years I've written a book of short fiction (Naked Trees Point To The North Star), performed in bands (ACRONYMBig City OrchestraThe Black Noise Orchestra, CatheadDead Air FreshenersDEATH MUTATIONS, Instagon, Mini-MutationsMKUltramegaphoneNoyz StallynsThe Olsen Twins Ghostlight EnsembleShot Reverse Shot), released a number of other audio recordings. I currently host a few shows: Somewhere In-Between: A Radio ZineThe Adventures of Marcus LittleAustin's Annual Halloween Spook-tacularMid-Valley Mutations20 Minutes Into The Future, and I have hosted a number of shows in both terrestrial radio (KWVAKPSUKMUZKXRYKBOOOPB) and online or via podcast. I've even held a handful of journalism gigs both in print and online as well. I currently blog at austinrich.org.

By far, these creative works have been incredibly rewarding, and my goal is to keep at it until someone takes away the keyboard and cuts all the remaining cables surrounding me.

When you support my work, you are helping me live this dream. It is easy enough for someone to jump onto a trend, and become another one of the many folks who want to be artists and philosopher kings in this modern digital wonderland we all have available to us. However, I've been at this for quite some time, and in that time I've given little thought to the issue of money.  It's been a great opportunity to hone my craft, produce a ton of material, and have a really great time doing it.  

Now it is time to see what I can do when I really put my mind to it.  

When you support me, you support a promise to produce new work that is unlike anything you've seen from me before. New recordings that you will want to listen to. Radio programs you can't wait to tune it for. Publications that come from my heart.

New stuff that thrills me to make, and stuff that I can breath life into With your help. When you are engaged with the work that I do, you help create a new media landscape, full of material you would enjoy. My promise is that I will make the best shows and stories that are possible, create music that you will enjoy, and package them for you in ways that you cannot wait to receive.

Join me on this journey, and I promise that we'll both have a great time along the way. 
Goals
15 of 200 patrons
If I can get 200 Patrons at any level of donation, I can officially launch my art as a business, where not only I, but my collaborators could all get paid. This would include paying my co-hosts for their work, and would allow me to pay for original artists to help collaborate on different elements of what I do.
