This Kickstarter project is here to help fund some very specific items for the Vampire Historian podcast. 


1) Audio equipment. Currently, the podcast is recorded on a portable digital recorder, which uses condenser microphones, and picks up a lot of extra noise. I would like to purchase a modest dynamic microphone that would allow me to record straight to the editing software. Projected cost is around $90-100. 

 2) Books, books, and more books! There are many scholarly books about vampires that are just expensive, or very hard to find. Most of the money raised here will go to purchasing some of these important books. You can view a list of books that I plan on purchasing here- http://amzn.com/w/1QQLHARQ575YY In addition to these, I have a more extensive wish list that could be purchased if the Kickstarter goes over the initial amount. 

 3) Any money over the initial amount would be used for one of the following: other books or resources; travel costs for conferences or interviews; technology resources, such as a new computer or better audio equipment.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge with this project will be the ability to find sources. Many of the sources needed for research are out of print or hard to find. That's why this kickstarter is important. It will help with the procurement of many sources that I otherwise would not be able to access.
