Everything a Gumshoe would get, and:

  • Sporadic essays on film, television and fiction that I find influential! There are a lot of works that I draw inspiration from, and I'd love to wax eloquent on why.
  • Updates on production of the next season! Behind the scenes pictures, and frantic written updates from me on how far behind I am, because what writer doesn't almost blow every deadline?




What Is The Neon Noir? 

The Neon Noir is a hardboiled audio drama of original detective fiction, told through the eyes of the characters living them. It blends the literary quality of an audio book with the professional sound design of film. I once overheard our producer describe it as "a twilight zone for noir" which I immediately decided to steal.

We launched our first season on August 30th, 2018, and are chomping at the bit to make more. I've already begun outlining the next season, and it's shaping up to be larger and more ambitious than the first. If season one is a proof of concept, season two will be a magnum opus.

Why a Patreon?

While many artistic endeavors are the product of dedication and hard work, it has been a point of pride for me to pay everyone who has worked on The Neon Noir. I am a firm believer in paying talented creatives for their work, and everyone, from the actors, to our sound designer, graphic designer, and musicians were paid for their work on the first season. The quality of the show is only possible because paid professionals were able to lend their talents to the project.

However, that means that the costs of creating the show have fallen on me personally. The only way more episodes can be made is by paying everyone again. So, in the interest of creating more Neon Noir, I decided to bite the bullet, and give listeners the ability to support the show directly.


I don't take financial support lightly, and I think those who are willing to financially support the podcast deserve unique rewards every month. So please, enjoy the podcast, take a look at the rewards, consider becoming a patron, and I hope to see you off, off in the neon noir...
