In case you haven't been listening to the newly rebooted Recurrent Events podcast, I wanted to pass along an opportunity for anyone in the world who follows RD80s to win some prize packs and help support the show. You don't even need to listen to the podcast to win! Just simply become a Patreon supporter starting at $1 and you'll be entered into a monthly giveaway.

If you've been following Rediscover the '80s for at least a week, you've notice the Recurrent Events news updates I typically post on Saturdays. It's a weekly compilation of links to retro pop culture stories and articles across the web. The revamped Recurrent Events podcast is basically an audio version of those weekly headlines. For those of you who don't know me personally, I have a heart (and a college degree) for radio braodcasting that I've never had the chance to use so it's natural for me to want to get behind a microphone and talk about my favorite subject, retro pop culture.

I've opened a Patreon account for my followers, listeners, and just fans of nostalgia to help me grow the podcast. And if I gain enough support, I plan to make the podcast and RD80s my full-time job. I know it won't happen overnight, but I just wanted everyone who has followed me online now for almost 6 years to be aware of my vision.

As a way to thank my Patreon supporters, I'm setting up two monthly giveaways based on the support level. I'll be giving away a $1 Level Prize Pack worth about $20 and a $5 Level Prize Pack worth around $50. I'm also offering sponsorship for individual podcasts through Patreon. I've got a welcome video and more information setup on the Recurrent Events Patreon page.

Below are the announcement videos of the two prize packs for August 2016. The $1 Prize Pack features 7 Hot Wheels pop culture cars from Ghostbusters, Miami Vice, Back To The Future, and more. The $5 Prize Pack has an 80s music theme and contains an autographed copy of The '80s Game featuring Martha Quinn, a cassette-style mp3 player full of music, MTV The Game, album cover mini posters, and more.

Head over to the Recurrent Events Patreon page and become an official fan or sponsor to be entered into the August giveaway contests! Thanks in advance for your support!!!
