Q: What happens when two monster kids with their own podcasts find each other?  
A: They start a podcast together!  

Test Pattern started as a local radio show in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, but once we joined forces, it became an awesome podcast about all of the creepy things we love!

What is Test Pattern?
In the days before syndicated shows and 24 hour programming, television stations often showed old monster movies hosted by local on-air talent. It is in this spirit that Test Pattern is made – a little bit spooky, a little bit silly, but always informative!

We have a new topic each week, with a focus on the macabre offerings shown on television starting in the mid 1950s, favorite creature features, B-movies, and occasional forays into the outer realms of horror.  Most of our episodes fall into one of four categories - We Play All the Classics (classic horror), Tales From the 90s (movies/TV for which we have a heavy dose of nostalgia), Deep 13 (weird, off-the-wall cult films), and Soul's Midnight (the depths of the macabre).

Why Patreon?
One of the biggest things we have in common is that we love talking about movies.  Hosting a podcast together allows us to do that every week and Patreon will allow us to continue making those conversations available for others to consume, while also providing new, special content for our most devoted listeners.

Things like equipment and editing software are one time costs, but there are monthly expenses to running the show as well - file storage fees, website hosting costs, and even renting or purchasing the movies we don't already have in our personal libraries.  We'll be thrilled if we're able to make enough to cover those expenses through Patreon.  Everything else will be cake ... which we'll pass on to our subscribers in the form of bonus content and fun surprises.

Thank You!
We love our listeners (to pieces), so the fact that anyone tunes in or downloads the show is amazing.  The fact that you're here, contemplating paying us for doing what we love is mind-blowing.  Every dollar that we receive is precious and will be put right back into the show, so if you love listening to Test Pattern and want to help us make it the best show it can be, consider subscribing today!

ROAD TRIP!
We will attend a horror film festival or convention and release a bonus episode recorded at the event.  We may even have an awesome guest for that episode, depending on the celebrities in attendance!  

There is also the potential for a Test Pattern listener meet-up, if you guys are interested in that!
