Gavin is creating some podcasts (and writing about them too)!

My name is Gavin and I really like making (and listening to and writing about) podcasts. 

My current projects include: 

The Pod Report
A website where I write long-form reviews of indie podcasts, op-ed pieces about podcasting/the community, write-ups of more mainstream shows, and in the near future a landing page for a podcast discussion show with a fellow podcast reviewer. 

The 3 Hour Podcast
A Patreon-exclusive podcast, T3HP does what it says on the tin. I sit down on one of my days off and produce a 20-ish minute podcast start to finish. No scripts, no outlines, just an idea and tons of re-takes. Each post will be exclusive to patrons for a week or so followed by the post going public, but it will always be hosted here on Patreon! Smokey and the Bandit, Thomas the Tank Engine, I'll be making many random-ass pop culture touchstones relevant to podcasting. Just you wait. 

Standard Docking Procedure
My first audio drama project, this upcoming show is a sci-fi sitcom based on a cantankerous old space station run by a snarky AI with a diverse cast and a promise that there will be NO BUMMERS. We need some more low-stakes fiction, and I'm going to take a heck of a swing at making some. 

The Red Light Library
A sex-positive look at wacky, wild short erotica. Every Tuesday I and one of a series of co-hosts get together to talk through and review a <100 page erotica piece we've found for sale online. Great stories are celebrated, hack writers are called out on their crap, it's a fun time all around.

Tuned In, Dialed Up
It's a podcast about podcasts co-hosted with fellow podcast addict Wil Williams! Every two weeks we discuss industry developments, exchange shows we think our co-host would like, and come up with horrific puns to ensure you never return.

The Fourth Journal - A Gravity Falls Podcast
Each week co-host Beth and I get together to discuss an episode of the fantastic two-season animated series Gravity Falls. This cartoon about 12-year-old twins spending a summer in Oregon while dealing with monsters, the supernatural, and inept adults is riddled with hidden clues, secret messages, and a heck of a lot of continuity. I love it to bits! (on hiatus)

The costs: 

I could open up Excel and make a fancy spreadsheet but research shows that's not fun for you so here's the basics: My hosting is cheap, my editing software bill just got a bit cheaper but it's still double-digits a month, and I have to work a freelance writing gig to pay for those overhead expenses every month, which doesn't leave me any capital to sink into new projects/paying people for their services to make better things. That's where your wonderful support comes in.

Technically this is just a hobby, but with your help I can make more content to the best of my abilities. With support I have a cushion to go out and try scary new things!
Tiers
The 3 Hour Podcast
$1 or more per month
Once a month I'll sit down and produce something in 3 hours. It might be a podcast about Burt Reynolds and worldbuilding, it might be about Thomas the Tank Engine and faith to canon. We'll find out where I go with it. At this tier and all tiers above you get access to the podcast weeks before the rest of the world!

MONTHLY STICKERS!
That's right y'all, if we get this high I'll commit to making a new sticker design every month! Which project I make a sticker for will probably be decided by a patron-only poll. Pun podcasts, generic stickers, actual album art for the podcasts I make, whatever we wanna do. Cover your stuff in my garbage head-pictures writ large.
