How to Support the Show
There are a few ways you can help keep this train rolling, like sending us stories or tweeting titles to Gordie (it's very important that he never perform this service for himself).
The best way to support us is by donating on Patreon, which allows us to upgrade our equipment, cover hosting costs, and pursue more ambitious related projects. In short, it opens up a lot of time for us to spend on the show. Our current reward tiers are:
