About iDrewby

G'day everyone and welcome to my Patreon page!

I am Drew Agnew, a podcaster from South Australia who is host & producer multiple podcasts including; The House of Mario: A Nintendo Podcast & A Drew Story. I fell in love with listening to podcasts back in 2009 when I downloaded my first episode of IGN's Nintendo Voice Chat. Now, if you see me with my headphones on I'll probably be listening to something from Kinda Funny, CLS or my many talented friends who also create awesome podcasts, shows & audio content.

In May 2017 I officially got up from the sidelines with my best friend Bryce Dewit to start our Nintendo podcast. At the beginning it was our way of making sure we catch up at least once a week since our lives were starting to get quite busy with work, family commitments, etc (I'm sure you can relate). It wasn't until a few episodes in the two of us decided podcasting was something we really enjoyed and The House of Mario was something we wanted to do and push forward with. That day, after recording, I went online and bought new microphones, stands, an audio interface and a subscription to SoundCloud to host the podcast's RSS feed. Since then we've released 150+ episodes and well over 150 hours of content! We've had all kinds of guests on the show, from fellow podcasters to esport players, game developers, YouTube creators, voice actors and (of course) big Nintendo fans. Putting together the show is something Bryce & I look forward to each week and will continue to do for many more years to come!

On The House of Mario, we stick to themes & topics based around our niche, Nintendo games. I launched A Drew Story in July 2019, because I wanted to create an outlet to talk to interesting people about their passions and hear engaging stories and experiences. A Drew Story is a story driven, conversational podcast that features a new guest each episode. We can talk about anything from the time they started their business, a childhood experience or even the time they watched their favourite Marvel movie. Nothing is off limits. That's why I'm really excited about doing the show, it should add some variety & value to your podcast feed!

Why start a Patreon?

1. Receiving financial support would be a huge help in allowing me more time & energy to put into podcasting. At the moment I'm working multiple jobs and even if I could drop one to spend more time planning, recording & editing episodes would be a dream at this point. Also covering costs associated with the shows would be helpful as well.  

These are some of the items & services I purchase to keep the shows running; 

  • Subscription to SimpleCast to host 4 podcasts
  • Subscription to Story Block Audio for copyright free music & sound effects
  • Subscription to descript to help make the opening skits
  • Upgrade & purchase gear used for recording, filming & editing shows
  • Helping Bryce & I travel to events like Adelaide's AVCon & PAX Australia to bring you the best content we can!

I don't expect or feel entitled to receive money from anyone. Many people have hobbies they spend money on and this is no different. Although, with 4 podcasts available on free services and plenty of great rewards I feel like I've created good value & a compelling reason to support the shows Bryce & I create. That takes us to the second (and more interesting) reason to be on Patreon!

2. Giving back to the audience who listens to my podcasts is something I feel strongly about and Patreon offers the perfect platform. Here, through our tiers we are able to offer you perks & rewards found no where else. The biggest being Cracking Furphys, our Patreon exclusive variety podcast available at the $1 tier. This is something Bryce & I have been wanting to do for a long time as we often have big discussions about many non-Nintendo topics. Having this show on Patreon allows us to have a show where we have some privacy and talk directly to those who enjoy our silly banter.

Of course there are many more rewards including a unique Patreon Discord role, discounts to my TeePublic store, early access to A Drew Story episodesproducer benefits & access to the 2nd Patreon-exclusive podcast, Secret Recordings. In this short form show, I take you behind the scenes and share the highs, lows and everything in between of planning, recording and creating these podcasts.

I hope you have a look at the tiers and find something that interests you!

Thank you so much for visiting my Patreon page! Your support of my podcasts means the world to me even if you aren't able to pledge any money. Downloading, rating & listening to the shows is more than enough to help the shows to grow and find new audiences. Although, if you do decide to support us here on Patreon I can assure you will not regret it. We're going to have a lot of fun!

Your host, Drew Agnew (iDrewby).
