I'm Dan Benjamin. I'm the founder of 5by5, a podcast network for geeks, where I host a handful of shows. I'm also the author of The Podcasting Method, with advice about podcasting gear, technique, and more.

I want to make the best podcasts and video shows in the world, and you can help. 5by5 was made possible by my listeners' ongoing support since the very beginning, and although 5by5 has grown a lot since then, I still need your help to produce and create the best shows.

If every listener donated $2/month, we'd have all of the creative freedom to deliver the kinds of shows we've always wanted to create, without any limits.  Reaching this goal would create a better balance between listener support and sponsorships, and create a more sustainable model for 5by5. This means better shows, more video, experimental projects, fewer sponsor breaks, and a better connection between you and what I create here.

5by5 wouldn't be what it is today without your support, and we truly appreciate your donation, no matter the size.

First access to a monthly Q&A video about 5by5, podcasting, video, technical setup, business, my neighbor's weird red light, comics -- whatever you want! I will keep an ongoing list of questions from my $10 patrons, and a moderator will pick the top 10 most popular ones for me to answer, in audio or video format.

First access to a weekly video update with a behind-the-scenes look at 5by5. Everything from our audio gear, video setup, DIY advice, updates about new shows, new tech we're experimenting with, unboxing videos, studio art, all the stuff geeks love.

I will post your logo, sticker, photo, mascot, or toy on our Wall of Awesomeness, our studio desk, or somewhere in our studio, ideally in a place that's visible to our video audience.

I will provide a voice-over for your project, business, or kickstarter video. This can make the difference between a great campaign and a crappy one. If you prefer a woman's voice, @haddiebird will be happy to record it for you instead.
Goals
$500 of $1,500 per month
Buy the equipment we need to add video for the shows we record here in Austin. This would also let us do video shorts, specials, and man-on-the-street interviews.
