Often, when I meet with my guests, I get to have personal chats, try new products, and hear cool stories that don't always make the final episode cut. So, I've decided to let donors in on these little tidbits and a behind the scenes peek at Fungi Town. Don't miss out!

Maggie Baxter mushroom prints

I'm happy to be able to offer three beautiful mushroom prints from local Athens, GA artist Maggie Baxter of MakeNiceDesignCo. (visit this link to see them) There's an appealing amanita, an optimistic oyster, and a beguiling blue mushroom. Each is printed on high quality heavy duty cold press watercolor paper and measures 6" x 9". Have your pick of the three (while supplies last) when you become a patron at this level and also enjoy all the benefits inclduded with the lower contribution levels (access to bonus mini episodes, a spiffy vinyl logo sticker, and a "Follow Me to Fungi Town" bumper sticker). What a great package!

Support fun, informative science communication and education by contributing to Fungi Town today.

The world of fungi - which includes mushrooms, molds, and medicines - is all around us and affects us every day. Yet, it remains mysterious and hidden. Fungi Town highlights the intersection of mycology (the study of fungi) with our everday lives, bringing experts from a wide range of fields to talk about their love of these fascinating organisms in a way that everyone can enjoy. We'll talk to beer brewers, lichen researchers, mushroom farmers, plant pathologists and many more. 

Funding for Fungi Town goes to support travel to meet with experts and enthusiasts working with fungi. The main goal for the remainer of 2018 is improving sound quality. This includes new equipment and audio processing services. Funds will also go toward producing transcriptions of each episode, to make the show more accessible to those with listening challenges.

 

Fungi Town is a labor of love and a one-woman show. It requires hours of research and travel in order to deliver the most interesting and entertaining content. With your support, I can explore further afield and reach out to more people so that we can learn together about the marvelous fungi in our world.

Mobile Microphone

$200 per month

Funding for this goal will go toward the purchase of a MV88 iOS Stereo Condenser Microphone. This portable device is compatible with my iPhone so that I can improve the audio quality of my in-person interviews and YouTube videos. Its easy user interface and balance of sound quality and affordability makes this my choice for mobile recording. I even got to try this device out at the Podcast Movement convention!

Fungi Town is a labor of love. It requires hours of research and miles of travel in order to bring great content to each episode. If you've enjoyed the show, please consider supporting with whatever you can afford. Check out the great rewards for each level! Even if you can only afford $1 per month, you'll receive access to patron-only content, a spiffy vinyl sticker, and help out with new equipment and processing. If every person who listens to the show regularly contributes just $1/month, Fungi Town will easily reach this $200 goal. Thanks!

 

Audio Transcription

$500 per month

Maybe you love fungi but can't listen to Fungi Town. I could be because you have hearing challenges or it could be that you work in an environment where you're not allowed headphones. Perhaps you remember a fun fact from an episode and want to find it again quickly. Whatever the reason, you'll soon be able to find transcripts of each episode in .pdf form that you can search and print. Transcripts will even include time stamps so that you can go back and listen to your favorite segment of the show. 

I've connected with a local professional transcriptionist who is branching out to start their own business. I want to show my support by partnering with her for Fungi Town's transcriptions, and they've given me a great deal!

Audio Processing

$600 per month

Funding for this goal will go toward the cost of audio editing. Although it takes stellar content to make a good podcast, it also takes great sound quality. That's why I'm working on improving your listening experience at Fungi Town.

Because I believe in supporting local business, I've connected with a sound editing professional in my town to negotiate a great price for improving the audio of my episodes. Reaching this goal will fund audio editing for the next year.
