About Tori Nelson

Greetings all, my name is Tori Nelson and I am the creator of God Help the Troubadour, a biographical podcast about the late singer-songwriter, Phil Ochs. This project is a labor of love which I have taken on with my girlfriend and editor, Marie McCarthy. 

I was hesitant to start a Patreon, but after some persuading from my audience, I've decided it couldn't hurt. Patrons will receive exclusive access to behind the scenes content and updates, extended interviews and discussions, and early access to future episodes. 

Supporting me here will help me afford research materials (up to now paid for out of pocket), recording equipment, subscription fees to my hosting site and Zoom (used for interviews), etc. all to ensure a quality experience for podcast listeners like you. If you have enjoyed the show so far, your support can only make it better. 

I want to thank you all for being a part of this journey with me. When I started this ambitious project I could never have predicted it would reach as many people as it has. My goal, first and foremost, is to bring Phil's story to the forefront of our culture. Each new listener, whether they know it or not, has a hand in keeping the legacy of Phil Ochs alive. It could not be done without you. Thank you.
