Criterion Now is a podcast that talks about the Criterion Collection, and is a part of the CriterionCast network. We put out a regular show and have a community that we love engaging with. This Patreon has allowed us to improve the show, obtain better audio equipment and editing software, and we have obtained a mobile studio where we've been able to do live podcasts with difficult to reach guests.

We have three contribution levels:

$1 - This is just if you want to say thanks and support the show. You will have access to occasional posts through Patreon regarding show plans and some behind the scenes info.

$3 - With this reward, you get early access to episodes after they are recorded. They will be posted immediately to the Patreon after being recorded so you get to hear them before they are edited -- which can be 2-4 days or longer. You'll also get the unedited versions, which we think you will enjoy. There are some segments we cut, and you'll even hear our bathroom breaks, editorial breaks, and some of the banter before we get back into the show. 

$5 - Our premium award level will offer occasional bonus episodes and random contributors will get free Blu-Rays (occasionally Region B). The bonus episodes will often be on different topics than what we usually talk about and will be more casual, but we'll probably dive more into other home media news and general movie topics. The discs are only available to US subscribers, but we are offering rewards to international patrons as well.

$10 - This is a new reward level and and the perks you can receive are no different than the $5 level. The extra pledge will go towards the administration of CriterionCast. This is for people who not only want to support the show, but also help with the financial burden that it takes to put it together. 

The way rewards work is we will draw randomly each month and select one or two Patrons at the $5 range. The number could grow as the Patreon grows. 

We will have occasional "give it all back" months where we will send all of the Patreon income back to Patrons in the form of discs and/or gift certificates to celebrate Criterion sales.

Most of all, we hope you'll use this to show that you support the show and become invested in our growth and improvement.
