Hello!We're Erin and Lee, and together we're Passer Vulpes Productions, audio fiction producers in Melbourne, Australia.
and Erin Kyan, with his cat Boop in his arms.
We make podcasts!
You might be familiar with Love and Luck, our cute queer love story with a touch of magic. Set here in Melbourne and made by an all-queer team, Love and Luck is made for people who like healthy relationships and happy endings. Releasing short episodes weekly on Tuesdays, Love and Luck was downloaded over 50,000 times in its first season, hit 100,000 downloads not far into the second, and continues to grow.
Nym's Nebulous Notions is a science fiction podcast in which we follow our intrepid conspiracy investigator Nym as she seeks The Truth about a mysterious signal that she's intercepted. NNN will take you to a mysterious ship abandoned in the dead of space, and then ask you what exactly you expected to find there. NNN is 12 episodes long and all fully released!
Floodlight Viscera is a monthly poetry mini zine written and read by Erin Kyan. Written with little to no filter, minimally edited and minimally rehearsed, it is fresh and raw to encourage a more... well, visceral connection to the audience. FLV releases on the 21st of every month.
Up and Coming ShowsWe're working on another show, Supernatural Sexuality with Dr Seabrooke, a fictional radio sex and relationship advice show set in a world where magic and monsters are real. We're hoping to launch SSDS in October 2019.
Money, Money MoneyOur shows are free! You can listen to them whenever you want and however you want. You can find them on your favourite podcast app, on Spotify, and with captions on YouTube (accessibility is important to us!).
However, our shows are not free to make. It costs quite a lot of money to make a high quality audio drama podcast. We have the usual hosting fees of course, but we also have recording studio costs, hardware costs, marketing costs... and the most important thing, our talent.
See, we do our best to pay the people involved in our projects. Our actors, writers, sound engineers, artists, consultants... everyone. Work is work, and art is often undervalued, and queer artists are even more likely to have their work undervalued.
We don't get grants and we don't have sponsors. Our funds either come out of our own pockets, or from listeners like you!
Your monthly pledge to us will be directly supporting queer art by queer people, and helping us bring more audio fiction to Australian podcasting. You won't just be helping us pay our teams and produce the shows, but you're also sending a message that kind, queer art is important both in Australia, and all over the world.
Rewards, Rewards, Rewards!So what do you get, if you back us on Patreon?
You get exclusive behind the scenes sneak peeks at the production process for all our shows. That's right, all of them! We'll keep you in the loop on what's happening for all of our productions.
You'll get access to our monthly livestream! We'll chat with you about what we're up to and answer your questions - and hopefully have some of the rest of our team along as guests sometimes too!
You'll get access to special Patreon-only channels on our Discord server! There you'll be able to hang out with other fans of our shows, but more importantly, you'll be able to chat directly with us and our teams!
You'll also have your name listed on the Supporters page on the Love and Luck website. We really couldn't make the show without you, and we want to make sure you're credited for your part!
You may have noticed that we don't have any reward tiers above $1.
There's a reason for that.
We know that the majority of our audience are marginalized people at a greater risk of financial insecurity. We don't want you to miss out on anything just because you can't spare as much as other people may be able. So all of our patreon rewards are available to every patron.
But of course, if you can spare more than $1 a month and you think we're worth it, we'd be delighted if you pledged more!
Goals, Goals, Goals!To pay for Love and Luck's base expenses - that is, not including talent costs - we need to be making $150 per month. To pay for Love and Luck's expenses including talent costs, we need to be making $300 per month.
To pay for Supernatural Sexuality's base expenses, we need to be making $400 per month. To cover Supernatural Sexuality's talent costs as well, we need to be making $500 per month.
At $600 per month, the marketing costs for our shows finally stop coming out of our own wallets, and also give us the opportunity to expand them and find new listeners!
And at $700 per month, we the producers finally get a little take home pocket money for our own work! We make our shows out of love and passion above all else, but it would be lovely to be able to pay ourselves as well as our teams!
And, the big dream? $1600 a month, which not only covers all our costs, but will let us hire a part time marketing officer, to take the huge marketing-and-admin-surrounding-marketing workload off our shoulders.
