About me!  OK!  Where to start?  Hi - I'm Tom - (AKA Big Daddy!) of the Big Daddy Road Show - The BDRS is an Easy Going Online Video Livestream Talk (Almost alswys entirely recorded LIVE) Podcast Production/Show. 

"Civil Conversations for/about America and the world going (+) for a change"  Topics Vary from show to show

  1. Wednesday Nights 9pm est - Mid Week Mash Up with Big Daddy
  2. Friday Night Free for All - (More donations - more shows) See group page for dates or PM BD.
  3. Real Talk with Big Daddy (Serious conversation) Random -  As Produced. 
  4. Sunday Chill - Random
 
I'm a long time professional photographer with real-life art degrees and everything, - I ran a very successful studio for 25+ years. (Sadly, forced into early retirement, due to a rather stupid accident that happened over 14 years ago) -

I started this show over 3 years ago to make some additional income, with affiliate banners on our website - I built a nice sized audience and learned tons... but made zero dollars.  Actually - I'm out just over 11K - not covering the endless hours - of production - but hey!  It keeps me from going nuts!
  
I have some great shows (Over 450 examples) on the net gaining thousands of views each - (One video - 72,000 views!)   Visit www.bigdaddyroadshow.com to find most of these free shows!

Many newbies to the BDRS binge-watch our previously recorded shows and constantly PM me about shows from many moons ago. (Amazes me!)  - Makes me smile.  Keep them coming!  TY.

Anyways - Will the show go on? By New Years 2020 - I'll need help with the bills and future productions of this video podcast if things are to continue - (the bookkeeper is upset, we need funds - period) Remember - I lost my career in photography.  #PoofGone.  So - this is me trying to make a small living - doing something I love doing - talking and listening to interesting people from all walks of life. 

Moving Forward and staying positive!

Members suggested I start this Patreon Account many months back (2018) to help out with the bills and more importantly - "the future goals of the show," - I felt bad.  Embarrassed.  (I still do, btw) But it is what it is - Facts of Life! We all get old.  If the shows to continue on!  Big Daddy - (Tom) needs some help!  $1/5/10 a month contributions would help tremendously! 

This is me - asking for help!  You can contribute to the BDRS for as little as $1 a month! (do that and share the shows - and also - add members to the Facebook group page) and #Boom!  That's a huge help right there!  

If you enjoy the shows, random live conversations - the Friday Night Free For All shows, Mid Week MashUp shows and the "Real Talk with Big Daddy" Shows - Etc, please consider helping with a contribution today.  

WHAT'S NEEDED?

What's needed is better equipment and funds for #BDRS expenses (BOTTOM LINE)  - Items like website and software subscription fees, plus, occasional website design and SEO work plus, basic upkeep, etc.  Future BDRS publicity/advertising expenses, one or two - special professional writers for certain shows (in my head) - website articles - from time to time, Some "super special guests," that might have small expenses to visit the show's studio, lodging, etc - and a small income would be nice...  it's getting hard to keep my head above water these days!  Thanks God, so far still above water.  

(This is why I want to consider surgery on my back if the new Dr's agree) *I need my old life back!  I need to get back to walking without issues - get back to real work! (I'll WORK, if possible - It's my longtime goal, surgery - or some new therapy miracle..)  *Update - shots in spine are helping very much - but do not bring me back to 100%.  Still - much less pain! - TY lord. 

Other Goals - New Equipment and Gas Money.
Oh lets see what else - better mics, sound equipment, cables, and current 2018, computer programs - better-performing podcast and lives software, even more cameras, and finally - a small slush fund of money to get us on the ROAD regularly  - (the Big Daddy Road Show was originally to be an actual "Show from the Road," - Roads Across America!)  Betcha Didn't Know That!

Originally - I wanted to do far more, more - remote interviews with celebrities and interesting people that couldn't possibly - make it to the BDRS studio.  Going to the guests home turf gives the BDRS audience a more real-life feel of some guests.. I feel. (Catch them in their real environment) 

Now - it's up to you guys! (Seriously -If you can afford even a buck, $5 or $10  a month - At this time.) That would ROCK!  

I'm asking for two things - Many more for shares of the podcasts (You can do this for FREE) - and more shares of the live videos on our YouTube channel and off the Facebook Fan Group Page posts.

Think about it - Even contributions of a buck or two - from oh, say - 2,000 people. (Strength in Numbers! Right?)  Certainly, this is a goal that can be attained given the number of people that visit the Group Fan page on Facebook (And BDRS website) not to mention the other long-time hardcore Big Daddy Road Show "podcast-only listeners."  At least I hope!   

Again - it's up to you guys!  Thanks for listening to this old timer yammer on - and thanks for anything you can do - again, "without it killing your bank or monthly - budgets!" - Please.

Six Months and Counting!  08/03/2018 - From the Desk of Big Daddy.  (lol)

When we reach $500 a month - This old man can really just chill again - know the bills are paid, relax a little - and really get back to rocking insanely interesting/funny/provocative/etc BIG DADDY ROAD SHOWS - (The accountant is upset), actually - Pissed is a better word.

Basically - THIS FIRST GOAL for this Patreon account  - the goal that will literally - SAVE the SHOW.  (yeah - its that bad) I have a budget for 6 months tops!

I'm going to continue to pay the expenses until Late January 2019, regardless  - after that - It's up to our known and tracked - :)
"MEGA COOL, Thousands of Awesome Loyal, Rock Star - Returning Listeners - and God."  

BD footed the bill (Happily) for 3 years + now, and well - I have over 300 awesome BDRS - Lives and Podcasts - That rock! And a great number of great new guests in the pipeline for this fall and winter! 

My 300 shows - that are in the can and currently online (Free entertainment) - have hours of awesome fun, (Where tons of fun to make) and offer it all!  They have - drama, (People love drama) and cool information and really interesting conversations, from average joes and janes and celebrities and sports stars - etc...  and I'm proud of them..  And I thank everyone that helped make them happen - Even a few of the haters!  (And professional trolls) Wink wink!
 
By Late January - 2019 - I'll know how much the listeners - and If the listeners -  love the show - (and if they can either really share the shows a lot more OR - get people donating.  Either way - whatever the outcome -  I can say - I gave PODCASTING, and Live Videos a try!  - "the good ol college try.. as they say."  I simply,  just can not afford the time and money - it takes - to produce all these shows - so I'm asking for help from my friends.  (A few friends suggested I try this) - so - here I am - trying Patreon!

First - GOAL! $500 a month - At this level - I can add MUCH NEEDED "new equipment, cameras for starters, (more angles during show) and hopefully - lease - some expensive higher end - pro video software," at which point - the BDRS can - and will produce "way... more polished, professional video podcasts and - shows" -

At the $500 a month level - I'll guarantee, a weekly Friday Night Free 4 All show! Except for holidays - but you guys know -  I even know to work some holidays! Especially if I'm hitting the Egg Nog!   (the listeners "easy fave" to date is FRIDAY NIGHTS FREE FOR ALL - Open MIC LIVES)   also - we will try our best to tape at least -  one or two "Real Talks with BD ." - that is if the interesting guests can be scheduled/secured (on their calendar,) their time, terms.

P.S. - I'll make the time and tape shows at 3am if need be!  (Passion)

From there - the next goal, (And I have to tell you rockers - I have even bigger ideas and goals after goal # two happens - If it happens) Next goal - would be 2500 a month - then things really start to get creative and exciting on the BDRS -   I'll hire part-time Staff, Paid Show Talent - Writers, Part-Time Producer/Tech Help - and GET THIS!!! (Think Comedy People) I'll even buy a "real live - talking bird" so our shows two famous kitties (Steve French and Captain Space Pants) can "have some fun between," their BDRS show appearances .. I'm kidding - maybe.  (No animals will EVER be hurt on the BDRS - this is only a joke)  I'll also buy new batteries for WeedASaurous!

2500 + I'll have the extra money for expenses for special guests, (Most likely 50,000 listeners) be doing - some really big remote shows (on the ROAD!) by requests, and be able to add - numerous other show building items like, pro PR - serious props, explosives, research, stunt doubles - some "little people maybe" - midgets, and zoo animals on show...  what have you - things like that!

Huh?  Right?  Exciting?  Look at what we did on a shoestring budget for 3 years -   

Please!  People -  Get me a budget to really be creative with, (Get the ideas in my head on screen) I do have two serious art degrees and years of being creative - basically -  Help - BIG DADDY get to the real work!  (That next level!!!!)  #BDRS #BDRS4Life  *Thanks to those pledging - If you pledge and you want a shout out and or a mention on the group page  - just pm me on the Big Daddy Road Show -  Facebook fan group page. and YOU GOT IT!  Also - if you can't afford even $1 a month - adding listeners and sharing shows - is another way to help and for anything you can do - I'm grateful and appreciate the support!  I really enjoy doing these talk shows and podcasts - but the budget for this old man with the bad back - :( - My budgets not what it used to be.  THANKS, GUYS!  Much Love - Big Daddy
