More info from main host John Barchard:
Why Do This?
We want to expand our Eagles coverage and give you more content. With your help we can really take BGN Radio to the next level. We have a bunch of exciting new things in the works and we want to give you as many bonuses as we can along the way. Being a BGN Radio supporter will net you tons of special perks, bonus content, and will allow us to form a closer connection with everyone in the Eagles community. Every month, 25% of our Patreon proceeds will go toward The No Kid Hungry program which will help launch school breakfast programs, recruit summer meals sites, and empower families to shop for and prepare healthy meals. So not only are you helping BGN Radio, but you are also helping kids and families in need of their next meals.
Aren't You Guys On The Radio?
Yes! We are very fortunate to receive compensation from Sportsradio 94WIP that helps us maintain our current podcast feeds and promote the show. However, with our growing amount of contributors, we can't currently pay everyone on staff. With your help we can better reward the BGN Radio crew and offer more extensive coverage to our supporters.
We appreciate all of the support you have given us these past three year and we look forward to giving you even more this season and beyond!
What this means is you can now help support our podcast in return for rewards, while also donating to a good cause in the process. Everybody wins! Find a breakdown of the different tiers on our Patreon page. Here’s a basic overview:
$1 Tier - A Tip! If you like our work and want to leave us a tip, we would love it!
$3 Tier - Behind the Scenes: Want a special look at how we make BGN Radio? (Behind the scences videos and pictures, silly preshow conversations).
$5 Tier - Eaglea After Dark Podcast: Get a bonus podcast of all of us chatting about Eagles and non-Eagles stuff, plus all previous rewards.
$10 Tier - Be Part Of The Podcast: As a patron, you'll be recognized for making BGN Radio possible. We'll mention your name on an upcoming podcast, BGN Radio will follow you on Twitter, plus all previous rewards.

The entire BGN Radio crew truly appreciates your support. We’ve come a long way ever since I called up John Barchard one afternoon and asked if he wanted to do a podcast. I remember when we were excited to get our first 1,000 listeners on a single episode. Now we have over 2,000,000 lifetime listens over 224 episodes. We’ve been featured on both major Philadelphia sports stations, including our current home at SportsRadio 94WIP. And we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s to come.
None of this would be possible with the awesome support from our listeners! Thank you very much. We hope our Patreon offers will enhance our programming even more for you.
(Note: Our Patreon page was inspired by excellent Sixers reporter Derek Bodner. Please go support him if you’re interested in Sixers coverage. He’s the best around and I’m proud to say I’m one of his many patrons.)
