Ears of Steel: The Podcast started in the summer of 2013 as a fun way to promote the book "Ears of Steel: The Real Man's Guide to Walt Disney World." Since then I've made incredible friends and had amazing experiences because of this little podcast.

The only downside has been limited time and resources. Sometimes I just don't get a show recorded because life gets in the way. Sometimes it's family, but most of the time it comes down to my day job. I'd like to ensure this doesn't happen, and I'd like to increase my output. I wish I could do multiple shows a week; at least 2, or maybe even 3. And they'd all sound fantastic with top-tier equipment.

Plus I want to write more. I don't want to make those who enjoy my books wait three years for the next one. I'd rather put out three a year!

On top of that I've recently started vlogging and I'm loving it. Even though sometimes it's only as exciting as a trip to the grocery store or Target, I still love doing it. And those are often the kind of vlogs I enjoy watching the most.

That's why I've started this Patreon account. My listeners know I hate asking for money - even for my books, even when I have no choice. With Patreon, I can ask for audience support in exchange for more of the show you guys love, and maybe even find new ways to include you. Will this ever generate enough income to make EoS and writing books my full-time job?

*he shrugs and digs his double-chin into his shoulder*

It's no secret I'd love that, but who really knows? My kids are obsessed with a family who became millionaires by playing Skylanders on YouTube, and my financial tipping point is much lower, so anything is theoretically possible. What it should definitely do is help me be more productive for you guys, as well as keep the show more topical and current, and more interactive.

If you can contribute and be my patron, I truly appreciate it. I will try to make it worth your time and money. If you cannot, please do not feel pressured or obligated. I will keep on keeping on. I know how tough it is out there. This is only for those in a position to give comfortably. If that isn't you, I'm totally with you and I love you just the same.

Beyond that, who knows? As Walt Disney never said, but Tom Fitzgerald did, if we can dream it, we can do it! Thank you!!!
