The Beacon is a bi-weekly urban fantasy audio drama, independently written and produced by Claudia Elvidge (that's me!), with the help of some fantastic cast and crew.

It follows the story of a college student calling herself Bee who discovers that she - and eventually, many others - have magic powers and are living in a world that seems increasingly dangerous and uncertain around them. It's a show written in the style of portal fiction fantasy novels, where the protagonist finds they have a place in a secret world, with a more episodic take on exploring the lives of those she meets and how they learn to work together in building up their powers and facing the threats around them.

Being able to bring this show to life has been and continues to be an incredible experience, and if you'd like to help it continue to be made, you're in the right place to do that! Pledges from this Patreon go towards sustaining the show via hosting and website fees, improving it by affording us access to better podcasting resources, and just making us better able to produce it by paying the crew for their valuable time.

And if you're able to support us, we'd like to offer you a little something in return. For even $1 a month, you'll receive a shoutout on social media, and we'll be introducing more tiers as the show progresses, so keep your eyes peeled for those!
