How Can You Support the A.D. History Podcast? Contribute to the Show on Patreon!
As the creators, hosts and show runners for the A.D. History Podcast, our greatest priority is producing the highest quality show possible. As listeners of the show, we believe you deserve nothing less. That can only be properly accomplished with the financial support of listeners such as yourself, through the crowdfunding platform Patreon.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a unique crowdfunding platform where listeners like yourself can choose to financially contribute to programs or creators for an amount you define on a monthly basis. As a patron you receive exclusive benefits, rewards and access in return for your deeply appreciated support.
How Will Your Contribution on Patreon Help A.D. History?
Your financial support on Patreon assists the A.D. History Podcast in countless ways. Producing each episode is a significant investment in time, money, and applied expertise in both crafting the content for each episode, as well as creating the best sounding show from a technical perspective.
As we hold the show’s production quality value to the highest standard realistically attainable, this is where your support has the greatest impact.
In addition to helping offset various costs of hosting the show that is inherent to all podcasts, it is our foremost goal to hire a professional editor to helm each new episode during the post-production phase.
The post-production phase is the most technically intensive, financially demanding, and the largest overall investment of time in every episode’s creation; accounting for up to 90% of an episode’s overall effort in some cases.
An average 90-minute long episode usually requires no less than 20 hours in post-production. When factoring the inclusion of each episode’s research, and recording phases, it takes between 30-35 hours to create a single episode of A.D. History.
As a program that releases a new episode every two weeks, with an average 90 minute run time, we require the services of a hired third-party professional editor to help much better meet that demand.
Hiring a professional editor allows us as hosts to exclusively focus on what we do best for you: researching, recording and presenting history. In doing so we can release more episodes for you more frequently, with the standard of quality you’ve come to enjoy from A.D. History.
What Benefits Will You Enjoy By Contributing to A.D. History on Patreon?
In addition to helping create more high quality episodes more frequently, as a Patron you will receive a number of exclusive benefits that include the special Patreon-only The Best of B.C. series.
