Things Not Seen is an independent radio show and podcast that features in-depth interviews with nationally recognized guests. Each week, we welcome authors, musicians, politicians, filmmakers, and more.

The show is hosted by Dr. David Dault, a former professor of religious studies who moved to Chicago to make radio. We are available nationally to NPR stations through PRX - the Public Radio Exchange. The podcast of our show is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Soundcloud. Since 2012, the show has been downloaded over 100,000 times.

Our show fills a gap between Fresh Air with Terri Gross and On Being with Krista Tippett. We take faith seriously, and our guests do, too.

We are produced by Sandburg Media, in partnership with the Chicago Sunday Evening Club, a faith-focused not-for-profit company that has been creating media for radio and television for over 75 years.

We produce approximately 30 new episodes a year, released 3 to 4 times a month, usually on Sunday mornings. 

Please consider supporting us on Patreon. Any amount you can give is a great help! But even if you can't support us right now, there are other ways to help. You can tell others about the show, or email us a word of encouragement. You can write us a review on iTunes. Any of those would be amazing.

But if you can, we hope you'll consider backing us here. Thank you for helping us make a great show about culture and faith!

Coffee Club
$1 or more per Things Not Seen episode 8 patrons
You are supporting independent radio, and that is awesome, and thank you! A gift at this level will cost you around $4/ month total. That's one cup of coffee at Starbucks. But to us, it opens up doors (and windows, and balconies) of possibility. Giving at this level gets you access to our Patron-only news feed. Thank you!
Cheap But Decent Bottle of Wine Club
$3 or more per Things Not Seen episode 3 patrons
You are more than doubling-down on your support of good radio - you are tripling-down! High five! This is $12 a month - the cost of a cheap, but decent, bottle of wine. You will be part of the patron-only feed, but you will also be added to an exclusive email feed, featuring show notes, behind the scenes photos with guests, and zesty bits of extra audio. That's right: zesty.
Movie Ticket and Popcorn Club
$5 or more per Things Not Seen episode 1 patron
This is a great encouragement to our work, friend - Thank you! This is very generous, and you are helping us a lot! This level is $20 per months - the cost of a ticket to the movies and a modestly-sized tub of popcorn. You will get all the above - feed and email list. We will also email you monthly, exclusive audio experiments created by David and the staff, interns, and freelancers who make TNS. Some will be weird, some will be fun stories. All of them will be interesting takes on faith and culture.
Fancy Stylish Haircut Club
$10 or more per Things Not Seen episode 0 patrons
ZOMG you are awesome - Thank you! This level is $40 per month - the cost of a fancy, stylish haircut. You get all of the above - patron-only feed, email goodies, and experimental audio, as well as a hand written thank you note from show host David Dault. His handwriting is terrible, but the thanks are heartfelt.
Wow Club
$100 or more per Things Not Seen episode 0 of 20 patrons
We thank you by name in the credits, at least once a month, probably more, every month, as long as you remain a patron. Naturally, you get all the rewards listed above as well (as well as an extra-long thank you note). This is amazing. Your support at this level is incredible! Thank you, thank you, thank you! 
Amazing Club
$250 or more per Things Not Seen episode 0 of 8 patrons
A. ma. zing. Support at this level allows us to dream. We can upgrade studio equipment. We can create live events. Your support will also allow us to work with other podcasters and radio professionals to teach them what we know about faith-focused reporting (we get a lot of calls about this) and to create NEW shows. All the rewards above, plus a "made possible by" credit on the NEW shows we create.
Jaw-Dropping Good Lawd Hello Club

Socks. Knocked. Off. THANK YOU! You get all the things above, of course. In addition, show host David Dault will travel anywhere in the 48 states to come visit you. Name it: He'll give a public lecture, or a private tutorial on audio production, or a house concert, or join you and your family for dinner and conversation. Pretty much anything legal is fair game, so let's talk. Thank you, and David is excited to meet you! (Wow!)
