My name is Nick Saik, and I started Know Ideas Media to tell pragmatic stories about a very divisive topic: Food production. Farming is near and dear to my heart, because I grew up talking to farmers and Ag professionals. As I developed a knack for interviewing and telling stories through video, it became clear to me very quickly that the Ag industry for all the things it does well, doesn't do a great job of telling it's story to the public. That's where my content comes in. 

If you haven't seen the videos I make, check them out. I am really proud of them, and proud of the pragmatic conversations that they end up starting. I think that what I do matters a great deal, and I want to keep making videos about food production, and one day branch out into other divisive topics as well. 

There are obstacles standing in the way of that goal however. This is a full time job for me, but the focus has always been on telling good stories, and less on generating revenue. One thing that I think makes Know Ideas Media a trusted source of information, is that I'm careful about who we accept financial support from.  I've always been cautious on doing ads about, or accepting sponsorship from companies or organizations that might have the appearance of informing the stories I tell, even if they'd really be quite hands off. In other words: I would lose credibility if I was funded by Monsanto, right? 

Well, as a result of this altruistic self imposed limitation, things at Know Ideas Media are getting pretty tight. We don't have funds to continue creating content for much longer, but I don't want to stop.  I have so much more to do. 

I need help. I need support. I need you.
