At one thousand fathoms, the deep sea starts. It's a dark and unknown place, full of creatures free to evolve into the strangest things on Earth. For us, we wanted to create an hour-long radio program that celebrates those lurking below the mainstream. On 1000 Fathoms, you'll hear skits, unbelievable documentaries and personal stories told by some of the coolest musicians out there.

Right now, we're seeking funding for season one. Consisting of six episodes, the first season will feature contributions from:

  • DAN DEACON
  • FUTURE ISLANDS
  • MARY JO PEHL (of Mystery Science Theater 3000)
  • O'DEATH
  • IMPORTANT COMICS
  • ROBBY RACKLEFF
  • MIKE PIELOCIK (of The Onion)
  • ED SCHRADER
  • THE CREEPERS
  • AND MANY MORE!

We're starting this all from scratch, and right now we need some help with getting things up and running. If you make a pledge, your money will go toward travel expenses, feeding people that are kind enough to help us out, promotional costs and much more.

And when it's all wrapped, be sure to tell your public radio station you want 1000 Fathoms!

SOME THINGS WE HAVE ALREADY

We have a lot more but we want it to be a surprise!
