Video Game News Radio is the oldest weekly gaming radio show.  It began in 2004 and continues to run today.  The theme of the show is different than ordinary gaming shows, because it presents a "working class" view of the gaming industry.  The hosts include a Steel Worker and Brick Layer, a Truck Driver, and a currently out-of-work struggling student.  The show is lead by a computer programmer who is passionate about gaming, he tries to keep the crew on topic while it often steers blindly into other topics, such as which pizza place is better, why Australians should ride kangaroos (If you got 'em, use 'em!), and many more stupid conversations.  We have a lively audience that participates via email and Facebook, and they help support and add to the weekly conversation.  It's like a big party and you're part of the conversation.  Nothing too serious, nothing heavily edited (or edited at all for that matter).  It's raw and truthful and often a touch offensive, but not on purpose, just because somebody always says something stupid.<br>

We'll be using the Patreon money to help provide incentive for the hosts to contribute weekly (Real life often gets in the way of doing shows, so by providing some monetary value for the hosts, they are more likely to show up.) as well as a percentage will go towards beefing up the show and services related to it.  We aren't asking for much.  If you want to give the minimum, that's great.  I'm not going to lie to you and tell you we plan to build a new revolution in gaming media.  We're just going to keep producing the same content we always have, and this will help us to continue doing so.  Thank you for your time, and if you never listened, you can find the shows in the following ways...<br>

1.  youtube.com/vgnnetwork  (Audio and Video are recorded and updated here, as well as live shows are presented every Sunday at 8pm EST)

2.  http://vgn.libsyn.com/rss  (The RSS feed of the show for podcast applications and iTunes)

Do an Oblast with Kevin.  Kevin will have a show with just you, talking about your life on Kevin's Oblast Radio in an interview format.  You will find your life is a lot more interesting than you thought it was.  And you'll get to tell yours story and be immortalized in the grandness of the VGN hall of heroes.  (To be built in the future.  Maybe.)  Plus all the rewards found above.

If you pledge this tier or you have contributed this amount in total from previous pledges, we will send you a memory stick that contains Video Game News Radio the Early Years.  Here is where it all started.  Listen to Don, Kevin, and Brian do their best to do a show with the poor technology choices available back in 2004.  Listen to Don get dropped, Brian say "Oh my God" and then vanish, or the recent influx of people who found us for the first time when iTunes went live with podcasting.  Plus all the rewards above.

If you pledge this tier or you have contributed this amount in total from previous pledges, we will send you a memory stick that contains The Complete Midwest Wasteland Collection.  For years, Midwest Wasteland was a popular sister show to VGN which offered a deeper look at the lives of the hosts and their crazy exploits.  Many of these episodes were lost when the servers were moved to Libsyn hosting, and there have been repeated requests to bring them all back in one set.  Midwest Wasteland continues to be recorded on special nights during the year, so this collection will contain the most episodes possible at the time of shipping.

If you pledge this tier or you have contributed this amount in total from previous pledges, we will send you a memory stick that contains The Donn Suesse Years for Video Game News Radio and MediSpecitve.   For years, Donn Suesse participated as a host of the show while Don Anderson dealt with his marriage and strange Amish house locations that didn't have access to Internet.  Donn eventually had to leave the show to deal with drama that took place from things he said while on the show.  Now you can own the complete collection of Donn as host of VGNRadio.

If you pledge this tier or you have contributed this amount in total from previous pledges, we will send you a memory stick that contains Video Game News the Jedi Years.  Jedi was long a fan of VGNR and offered a younger perspective to gaming plus a religious bent that played off the other host's insensitive behavior.

If you pledge this tier or you have contributed this amount in total from previous pledges, we will send you a memory stick that contains Oblasts, Dailies, and Odds and Ends.  Kevin often tried to add new shows, one-offs, and even a daily show for awhile to mixed reception.  Often trying to do too many things at once, these shows were often good but were released too inconsistently and didn't stick around, with the exception of Kevin's Oblast Radio which is still produced and posted today.  Here you'll get the complete collection of current Oblasts, plus the various odds and ends of shows that have been tried over the years.

If you pledge this tier or you have contributed this amount in total from previous pledges, we will send you a memory stick that contains Video Game News Catch-Up Series 1.  This contains a mixture of episodes that the other collections didn't have room for or contain, especially later on when Larry joins the show, the show becomes more sporadic and hosts move around (many people thought we had simply stopped producing the show, so many lost episodes are contained here) and our eventual resurrection as a weekly show again on a regular schedule.

From here forward, every additional $100 in earned rewards (Or if you by some crazy reason pledged at this level) will get you the year's episodes from 2014 and up as the year's click past.  On memory stick, or future memory tool that the aliens grant us when they arrive.  Possibly a brain implant or crystal memory that when struck by a laser allows you to be in the room with the VGNR hosts.  If we're not dead.  If we are, then you can imagine this to be whatever you want.  It's your call...
