At RDub Studios, we create podcasts centered around motorcycles and other automotive topics. Our first show Loud Pipes! is in the third year of production and is released on a weekly schedule, thanks to the support from our Patrons.

We also operate the Motorcycle Podcasters Challenge.  This is an annual event among podcasters that host shows with a motorcycle related theme.  We ride for points, a sweet trophy, and bragging rights among our friends and colleagues.  

We have reached a point in our journey where we want to grow and have considered selling advertising for our shows.  Instead, we prefer to grow and strengthen the community around our shows with Patreon.  The idea is to keep the podcasts completely Ad free and offer additional and behind the scenes content through Patreon that will not be released publicly.

Proceeds above and beyond the ongoing support costs of the show will be used for upgrading equipment and process improvements as we grow as well as being able to travel to various events.
