Thank you so much for being a part of the Meat Machine that keeps Dread Media going.

As you probably know, Dread Media has been published every Monday for more than TEN YEARS! And, as a listener, I'm sure you also know that I've had sponsors on and off through the years. Sponsors help big-time, but they only cover a portion of the money I've put into this show. Whether through hardware or software or web-hosting or money for my Skype account to do interviews, Dread Media requires a financial as well as temporal sacrifice for me to run. 

I can provide the time, but the reality is that there are ongoing costs involved. Rather that explicitly ask for money, and in keeping with the spirit of this community, I wanted to establish a platform wherein you, the Dreadites, can support (anonymously if you like) my ongoing work in exchange for awesome Dread Media swag. Every bit helps, and I've set up a range of rewards for your help.

Check them out in the following sweet-ass infographics:

And, if you're all "what does that mean?" Chill out and check out the legend:

*Thanks so much to Kyle Miller of TGT Studios for the infographics. See him for all your amazing woodworking needs, as well as infographics, apparently.

With your help, I hope to make the Dreadites an even tighter-knit community, and keep Dread Media producing content for another Decade of Dread and beyond!


Rewards
Phone Booth Dreadite
$1 or more per month 2 patrons
Right, I know that no one uses a phone booth anymore, but bear with me. This entry level tier gives you:
  • access to the Patreon Supporter-exclusive production blog, giving you insight into the process behind the show as well as what I'm watching, listening to and reading on a weekly basis  
  • a shout-out on the show (unless you email me and tell me not to). 

All for the cost of a weekly phone call from a now non-existent phone booth. So save your quarters and stop worrying about Kiefer Sutherland with a sniper rifle and help out the show! 

Coffee Shop Dreadite
$5 or more per month 5 patrons
Instead of sitting in a coffee shop and wasting time, you can support this show for the price of one of those expensive mocha-frappa-whatevers a month. In return, you get:
  • access to the Patreon Supporter-exclusive production blog
  • a shout-out on the show (unless you email me and tell me not to). 
  • AND access to free exclusive audio content and any digitally self-published work I do from here on out, writing or audio. 

As part of the community, you'll also be able to help craft and decide what exactly that audio content looks like (sounds like, yeah I know). Want produced audiobook stories? Film commentaries? Film score-style music? This tier is your guy.

Dreadite Literati
$10 or more per month 1 patron
This is the first tier of physical rewards. For those of you with an eye for fiction, this tier gets you a little something to sink your eyes into. This tier offers:
  • access to the Patreon Supporter-exclusive production blog
  • a shout-out on the show (unless you email me and tell me not to). 
  • access to free exclusive audio content and any digitally self-published work I do from here on out. writing or audio.  
  • AND an exclusive signed/limited chapbook of micro-fiction (horror poetry/flash fiction) from yours truly. 

This is available worldwide and requires a three month commitment, but once you pass that three month time limit, you'll be sent the first volume of micro-fiction. I plan on making these regular volumes as well, at least every year, so get in on the ground floor!

Dread Pirate Dreadite
$20 or more per month 1 patron
This tier is named after a pirate because you get some booty! No, not that kind of booty. Calm down. I'm a married man. For supporters at this level,  you will receive: 
  • access to the Patreon Supporter-exclusive production blog
  • a shout-out on the show (unless you email me and tell me not to). 
  • access to free exclusive audio content and any digitally self-published work I do from here on out. writing or audio.  
  • an exclusive signed/limited chapbook of micro-fiction (horror poetry/flash fiction) from yours truly. 
  • AND a box of booty from Dread Media headquarters. Think of it as a Dread Media Loot Box! This could be promotional material I've received, Blu Ray/DVD screeners, books, comics, etc. Or a combination of any of the above. 

These will be mailed out yearly and require a three month commitment in USA/Canada or a four month commitment worldwide. Avast, me Dreadites! Open up your pockets and receive your treasure!

Goals
$51 of $200 per month
If Dread Media reaches $200 per month, I will record a second solo news/shit-shooting shorter weekly podcast available to Patron Dreadites ONLY.
