Matt Fradd & Team

are creating Videos and Podcasts
When I started this Patreon account it was to make my podcast, Pints With Aquinas (PWA), the best podcast it could be. 

Since that time we (I say we because there's now a team of us ... as you'll see) have gone on to start the Bible History Podcast, as well as to develop a long form discussion show on Youtube called The Matt Fradd Show.

It has been one exciting ride!

I've also been able to hire several people to help with the running of all this, such as my personal assistant, Melanie, who helps me to schedule my guests; a social media director; a fulfillment director who takes care of all of our inventory and shipping needs, a video editor, an audio editor (for PWA) and a couple of graphic designers.

None of this would have been possible if it weren't for my amazing patrons. And it won't continue unless awesome people like you begin supporting.

All of this requires upkeep. To give just one example, to record one episode of The Matt Fradd Show costs over 3 grand (studio rental, production staff, video editing stipend for guest, as well as flights and hotel.)

And here's the thing, I don't just want to be maintaining things. I want to grow all of this good work that I'm doing so the quality can go from good to great and we can reach more and more people.

This is why I need your support. And I'm not asking for a lot. Five or ten bucks a month from many fans goes a long way.

When you sign up as a patron you'll get a bunch of free stuff in return (which you'll see when you sign up so I won't explain that here).

Thank you for driving all of this work. None of it happens without you, and, frankly, unless people continue to support and remain consistent in their support, I'll have to gradually stop doing this.

And I think that would be a shame, given how many people it seems to be helping.

Thank you for being apart of this.

Goals
80% complete
Reaching this goal will enable me to write, have translated, and print apologetics material for Catholic communities in poorer countries around the world. The apologetics material I will write will be specific to the needs of that community. I will then fly down and speak in those countries and distribute the material. All this will be at my expense.
