Tales of the con is a small independent team. Everything we do is out of our own pockets.  Nobody likes ads, and quite frankly an advertisement-based business model is a dying breed. Crowd funding allows you to contribute in a more meaningful way, easing financial burdens, showing support, and letting creators be creative!

Tales of the con has launched a Patreon page.  Patreon is a site designed for patrons (that’s you!) to support content creators by signing up for monthly contributions. These contributions are separated by dollar amount, and each tier comes with a reward.

Our ultimate goal is non-stop convention coverage with a spotlight on every fan, artist, and cosplayer that has a story to tell.

Currently we have one tier. By subscribing to the first tier you will receive early access to our podcast, a week before anyone else.  We are working behind the scenes to bring you more tiers and rewards including: exclusive T-Shirts, merch, and New Patreon-exclusive shows…
