Keeping our podcast free is important to our goal of spreading story and helping the talented writers, artists and composers we work with find new audiences. Because we have always seen our projects as a form of community building and collaboration with our listeners, we wanted to create a way for our core fans to become a part of what we do.

Why Patreon?
Supporting us in Patreon is a way for you be a part of what we create and ensure its growth and sustainability. By becoming a Patron, you are not only a fan and listener, but you're a part of helping bring our creations to life. 

Many people volunteer their time and talent to our shows. In addition to creating shows we and you love and are excited about, most of us have full-time commitments and other obligations. 

Of course, there are hard costs tied to making each episode. These costs include hosting the websites, storing the audio files you hear, maintaining and upgrading microphones, cables, and other recording equipment, as well as paying, authors, voice actors and composers for each episode. 

Thank You
Our patrons help us focus more time on the quality and development of the podcast, and also create the opportunity to reward the people who give their time and talent. We can’t put into words how much it means to us that you listen to the shows each time we post a new episode. Your feedback, support, and love of the worlds we create are what keep us going. There are many levels of support, but if you can’t afford to back us financially, please leave a star rating and a written review of the shows in iTunes, and tell a friend! The more people who hear the shows, the more opportunities we have for continued growth.

About The Lift

The Lift
is part Twilight Zone, part Night Gallery, a little bit Fantasy Island, and all about story and characters. It should both entertain and challenge the listeners in new ways and provide the authors, artists, and musical composers with a great way to reach new audiences. This show is a labor of deep love and Victoria’s chance to move about in the world. You might even learn some things about yourself while you’re being entertained.

The 2015, 2016, and 2017 PARSEC Award Nominated Podcast was created by Daniel Foytik and Cynthia Lowman who, along with talented voice artist, Amber Collins, bring the stories to life through dramatic readings.
