      Thanks numba.ninja,

      Good point about the name.

      The idea isn't that food is why we were created. He created us for His glory to tend the world that He created.

      It's more about how he has created us, which includes the ability to enjoy and to thrive on the foods that He has created for us.

      Love it Jacob and congratulations on your personal... 'growth'... he says, wondering immediately what better word to use.

      You have a simple, clear and worthwhile campaign goal and very attainable budget. Also an easily defined target audience for your blog, although I guess some may have some issue with the title of the blog, in that food was created for us rather than vice versa.

      It'll probably be worth you actively promoting your concept to that audience ahead of launching, so that you have plenty of people to tell about the campaign just before it launches, rather than just relying on the kickstarter community to do that. Then you'll increase the liklihood of exceeding your basic funding goal and getting your bigger wishlist achieved.

      The LORD command his blessing over your campaign and the blog itself.

About

We are entering a Renascence of health. In the 21st century, amazing strides have been made to understanding conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer's, heart disease, obesity PCOS, cancer, and others.

Science is a significant tool to understanding how God created the world we live in. But how does science compare to a biblical understanding of our world?

My name is Jacob Wagner. I am a professional software engineer with over 20 years in the IT industry. Seven months ago I weighed 378 pounds and discovered that I am pre-diabetic.

So, I started an amazing journey to learn about how God made the human body to work. What I have discovered has changed almost everything that I thought I knew about food and metabolism.

Now I feel great, have lots of energy, and have lost over 50 pounds. But more than that I now understand how what I do affects my body, rather than relying on others to tell me what to do with it. 

Above all, I have learned that I (and you) have bodies created for the food that God has provided for us.

Enter - Created 4 Food

Please join me in producing Created 4 Food, a podcast where together we will explore food science, health, and metabolism from a Christian perspective. We will invite experts in nutrition, health, science, exercise, and theology to help us discover how our bodies are made.

The plan is to start sometime this summer and to produce at least 26 by the end of 2018. 

What I Need

To get started all I need is a little money for hosting services and microphones.

  • Web Hosting ($13/month) $156 
  • Media Hosting ($15/month) $180 
  • Web Domain $12 
  • 2x Quality USB Microphones ($90 each) $180 

Subtotal $528 
Estimated Kickstarter/Processing Fees (9%): $53 
Total $581 

In addition to this project budget, I will be spending about $500 of my own money on computer equipment and a consultant to help me produce a quality podcast that will provide value to listeners.

If I get an additional $600 I will also hire a professional audio editor. $1500 beyond that and we will do a live broadcast from Ketofest In July, and of course get as many interviews as we can from the experts there.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is that I have not produced a podcast before. As a result I am engaging the services of Dave Jackson. Dave has been podcasting since 2005 and has taught hundreds of people through the School of Podcasting, which he founded more than a decade ago.
