Hello Authors,
Just...wow. We’ve been at this for just about ten days. The response has been dramatic and heartwarming. Authors, we’ve jumped more than $100. We are now sitting at just under $300.

That’s incredible. Authors, help us get over the hump to $300. It doesn’t take much: a $6 subscription means we can pay to get the most talented actors to read the hell out of these stories (Many of them go through your stories line by line with Marcy Arlin directing them. We can pay audio engineers to tighten up the audio that we can’t (Bradley Robert Parks, Sam Schreiber, and I do most of the audio production ourselves with assists from friends like Jessica Plumbley, Terence Taylor and Kyle Fink). We can pay Marcus Tsong for knowing exactly what song to put to each story (He chose all the Bowie we used last season). $6 helps us pay for more amazing art to bring these stories, authors, and actors to life in living 2d color. And of course, we can pay the authors of Season 3 more and save up to pay pro for Kalediocast Season 4. That could be your story or the story of your critique partners!
$6 dollars a month will do it. 20 more people and we are there.

Hello Everyone!

Kaleidocast Season 3 has more than a couple stories with clear folklore and fantastic roots, so I asked Professors Sara Cleto and Brittany Warman of the Carterhaugh School of Folklore and the Fantastic Discussion Groupp if they would do commentary on those stories. They said yes, so now we’re building a treasure trove of additional folklore content to go with our stories for Season 3 as we produce them for release in September. In Season 3, we are companions traveling another worlds Land of Death. We discover the not-so-easy life of Centaurs in the 21st century swipe-left dating scene. Then we dance with foxes, commune with and/or hunt trouble spirits, and of course walk through the dark forest. This audio is a taste of the content for season 3 with part of the conversation about the story "Little Red," by Val Raggtime.

There is a pandemic, and memes are flying like bullets. Life as we know it has become very...meta. It's times like these, I find a strong dose of unreality is just what the doctor ordered. And despite the quarantine and the chaos Bradley Robert Parks Sam Schreiber Marcy Avenue @Sondra Fink Essowe Tchalim Jo Ladsinksi, and new addition Marcus Tsong (no, not the R&B group) and I have been working hard to bring you more stories from the Kaleidocast.

Season 3 brings stories new and stories long past due for another listen, from current Hugo award winning authors and the soon to be nominated. Don't take my word for it, Brad will break it down.

Hey everyone, I'll do an official announcement with fireworks and all the trimmings a little bit later, but it's been a long 2020, and I wanted to give you all a little bit of good news. Creators are still creating. Here in Brooklyn, we're making a home for their stories and art. Kaleidocast Season 3 is still in the works and we've finalized the list of stories. We will announce the Season 3 authors on Monday.

Trust me. You're gonna lose your ish.

Folklore is the foundation of modern fantasy writing.The symbols and characters used in so many of the stories we love have a legend, a fairy tale, or a myth at its root. When authors get it right, it feels a little like coming home. We happened to notice that many of Kaleidocast Season 3's stories tease out these folklore elements in startling and spectacular ways. So we reached out to the experts to dig a little deeper.

Sara Cleto & Brittany Warman, the founders of the Carterhaugh School of Folklore and the Fantastic, are brilliant and warm academics who make the Dark Forest a fun place to play.

The first of the exclusive #Patreon video lectures they will be producing for the the Kaleidocast is for "Sailing to the Underworld; Or, Anywhere You Take Me from Here," by BSFW member Mimi Mondal with Joshua A.C. Newman, which will be published this year for Season 3. Please subscribe to the Kaleidocast Patreon and help us become a new home for new and amazing speculative fiction.

Tim Pratt. N.K. Jemisin. Amal El Mohtar. Theodora Goss. What do these amazing authors all have in common? Kaleidocast published their stories alongside amazing new writers from right here in NYC. And we're going to do it again in Season 3, but this time we're going to pay at least semi-pro. We've just hit the $164 mark, almost halfway to our goal of $400 a month. We believe authors should get paid well for their work and with your subscription, you can help us become a new home for speculative fiction. https://www.patreon.com/kaleidocastnyc
