Sounds Like An Earful is a Canadian studio that develops really good podcasts.


We are a group of talented oddballs who produce independent podcasts. Our studio creates original content in-house and we work really hard to foster a creative community around podcasting.

WHAT ARE YOU SUPPORTING?


Sounds Like An Earful is a 'podcast studio'. Not sure what a 'podcast studio' does? No worries, it does a whole bunch of great things. Among those things are:

  • Creating really high-quality original podcast content
  • Working to help other podcasters both look & sound better
  • Creating free resources for podcasters - this includes releasing Creative Commons music
  • Fostering a community of people by blogging, connecting & promoting the medium of podcasting (and all it has to offer)
  • Supporting newcomers who want to start their own podcasts but lack experience
  • Celebrating being odd & creative

Mostly though, we like to make folks laugh, cry and think (not always in that order). Our studio is a place where creativity is necessary, strange ideas are celebrated and everyone is welcome as long as they have stories to tell.


WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?


The simple answer is that while we love producing podcasts and our audience wants more (see reviews here), the workload is reeeeally big. Creating multiple shows every week takes time, technology, and humanpower. We do work for hire in order to sustain the studio, but we also volunteer a lot of our time toward all of the not-for-profit things that the studio does. We need your help to continue producing original content & volunteering our skills to other good folks.

Firstly, your support goes directly toward the immediate costs of our original podcasts  (server storage, software, studio expenses, etc.). The more we can raise here on Patreon, the more we can create great content for our growing audience. 

Secondly, your help will enable us to dedicate more time to doing things that give back to the entire podcasting community.

  • We want to make music & give it away to folks with great ideas (but small budgets).
  • We want to incubate new shows and help them develop their skills without all the regular prohibitive costs associated.
  • We think podcasting is a really cool way for human beings to connect, understand each other & exchange ideas. We want to encourage that however we can.

If everyone who gets value out of the things we create gives as little as $1/month -  Sounds Like An Earful can be a hub of really creative audio.


STILL CONFUSED?!...


We know, the internet is a weird place. Here is the bottom line. We produce a bunch of online radio shows. They are pretty good by our best estimations. They are always getting better. You can help that process continue by giving a small donation every month. It is a simple way to help build a community around creativity, curiosity & audio.  

If anything you've heard from Sounds Like An Earful has made your day a bit better - you can return the favour by keeping us busy & well-caffeinated. Of course, if you change your mind you can always cancel at any time.

"Tip Your Hat" Club

A dollar means a lot and we'll put it to good use. Members of the "Tip Your Hat Club" will be first in line for early releases, merch, music, etc. as those things happen! We'll also thank you by name in the Community section of our website. That adds up to $12/year - which is the price of a single date to the movies! (I think... it's been a while...)

The Coffee Club

$3 a month is like saying the studio means as much to you as a nice cup of caffeine each month. And caffeine is so good! So thank you! Joining the "Coffee Club" will gain you access to our patron only stream (which will include extra behind-the-scenes audio/video/written blogs about how we make our shows). That's $36/year and you'll get to be an elite member of the community.

The Listening Party Club

$8 a month gets you everything above, plus one of our podcasts will be "brought to us by you" for one week. You'll also get invited to our Google+ hangout listening party on the first Sunday of every month. The other $8+ patrons & I will hang out, talk podcasts, talk music, talk life - it'll be fun! That's $96/year to help bring some of the best podcasts out there to listeners' ears.

The Official Sponsor Club

Pledging $25 a month gets you everything above and a great big shout-out on the podcast. All " Official Sponsor Club" members who stick with us for a full year will receive a care package via snail mail. It will include hard copies of the music you helped to produce, hand-crafted goodies inspired by our shows, and whatever else we can fit in there to show our gratitude for your patronage in making these fine shows happen. For transparency sake, that is $300/year to be an Official Sponsor.

The Deep Pockets Club

Honestly, we are not sure what to offer here... If you really like what we do and have this much to give in support of the podcast, lets you and I have a Skype and chat about how we can return the favour. Patronage at this level means that you are personally investing in our dream of being the best independent podcast studio in Canada; and THAT is huge.
Goals

  • We can properly fund our creators
  • We contribute Creative Commons music to the podcasting community twice weekly

  • We produce a minimum of 8 active shows in-house every month
