Hi, my name is Elton McManus and I set up what would become RogueTwoMedia in 2009. Since 2008 I’ve been listening to and creating podcasts. Over the years I feel that I have become quite good at it, I’m certainly not perfect but I am, in my opinion, getting better the more episodes I put out.
In ’06 I moved out of the London area for a much better life for my wonderful, growing family. That year we moved house, had our second child and I changed jobs which meant spending a lot more time travelling in a van.
At this point I had already acquired a taste for spoken word radio but I was finding it harder and harder to either get a solid reception or find a set of programs to help me through the day.
This is where podcasts come to the rescue. I was heavily into the tv program LOST and found the LOST Initiative with Iain Lee, it was a SkyOne production and within the first episode I downloaded, I was hooked. I started looking around for other shows and found Movies You Should See from Simply Syndicated, ended up joining their forum, from there I was put in contact with Mr Scott Copperman with whom I recorded many, many episodes of An Apotheosis of a Bombast and Rethinking LOST.
In the meantime I had recorded four short episodes with my better half and had been bitten by the bug.
So what is the idea behind this Patreon page? Well, I love recording these shows whether it be as the host or the guest and I want to build on what I am doing. I’ve slowly turned the show Shonky Lab into a LIVE experience and would like to build on the ‘call in’ opportunities I have here but getting the time is sometimes tricky so if I could use this site as part of or as a wage then I will have more time.
More time means more episodes and hopefully new shows. What I would love to do in future is expand Shonky Lab into a regular show two nights a week where we have the topic discussions one night and a solid call in show the other.
You never know, I might be able to pull it off so please do consider helping me out.
Just incase you’re wondering what the PATREON would be going towards
$50 per month
Reaching this goal will mean that all the podcast hosting and website charges are covered.
