Hello and welcome to my Patreon page. I’ll explain what it’s all about in a moment but first let me introduce myself and explain what I do.

My name is John Dalton and I am an artist and writer living in rural county Kerry in Ireland. I have a podcast where I chat with remarkable artists from around the world.

If you haven’t heard of my podcast before, here are previous episodes to give you an idea of what the it’s like.
http://www.johndalton.me/podcasts/ (but don’t rush off just yet.)

Here is artwork from some of the artists I’ve chatted with so far on the podcast.

Teresa Oaxaca

Vincent Desiderio

Pretty fantastic right, and that's just a few.

Here is what people have been saying about the podcast.

“I would just like to add that I think John Dalton is the new Vasari of the New Renaissance!”
“One of the best ART broadcasts I've ever listened to.”
"Quite an enchanting interview that spoke volumes about both interviewer and interviewee… thank you so much for a wonderful hour and a half!"
"Wonderful interview! Thanks John for all the podcasts."
"John’s questions were thoughtful, well pointed and interesting. Really enjoyed this conversation! Thanks."
"Excellent, charming and educative interview."


Pretty humbling.

These are long form in-depth conversations.
It takes me about a day and a half of research in preparation for each podcast.
The recording takes about another half a day.
And then it takes me about a another 2 days to edit the podcast.
Sometimes that can blow out to be more . . . like with Vincent Desiderio which took me about five days of research in preparation because Vincent has given so many lectures and interviews
Or the podcast with Candice Bohannon and Julio Reyes which ended up being 3hours long and took about 5 days to edit.
So there’s a lot of work involved.

Where does Patreon fit in?

Patreon is a good old fashioned subscription service made new. It comes under the umbrella of ‘crowdfunding,’ but is different from other crowdfunding websites like, Kickstarter and Indiegogo in that with Patreon you commit to a small amount of money regularly - every month. As I said, like a subscription. Patreon was founded by artists themselves which is why I think they, “get it.” A little bit of regular money is, in many ways, better than a big lump of money out of the blue.

How much?

For as little as $1 a month you can support the podcast. You can pledge more if you like and you can stop whenever you like. You can road test how it works if you're scared (you can pull out before you're charged at the end of any month, so it's risk-free.)

Common Questions

“Do I have to pay in US Dollars?" NO - Pay in any currency. As Patreon is a US based website, everything is written in Dollars, but you can use any currency and it will be automatically converted.

"I don't have much money, can I still become a Patron?"
Yes, please only sign up to donate what you can easily afford. Even $1 a month will make a huge difference and would be greatly appreciated.

"Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?" Yes of course! If you can't afford to donate in the future, or you need to donate less that's absolutely fine. You can just log in to change or cancel the account whenever you want.

Become a supporter

If you subscribe to the podcast, then I encourage you to take that extra step and become a supporter here on Patreon. You will get that warm glow whenever you hear the podcast because you will know you have helped make it happen. You will be a true patron of the arts. If you find any joy and value in what I do, please consider becoming a supporter today with a recurring monthly pledge of your choosing, anything from the cost of a pencil and to Medici support would be brilliant.

You can see what I will be using the money for in my goals section. Click back and forth on the arrows to see future and past goals.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
