OUR MOVE TO PATREON AND WHY WE DID IT!

This was a BIG decision for us. In keeping true with who we really are, we made a big decision to move our show from YouTube over to Patreon.

In keeping true with who we really are, we made a big decision to move our show from YouTube over to Patreon.

This was a BIG decision for us. YouTube and Facebook had been our home since starting our podcast. We’d stream our shows every week to a LIVE audience and then archive those shows on YouTube for our fans to watch at a later date. This seemed to make a whole lot of sense in the beginning.

Then we started getting interest from advertisers and the conversation changed. They talked about us tailoring our content around a specific demographic that was in line with their ideal customer. They even asked about running commercials during our show and being guest themselves to be interviewed. While the idea of making money for something you love doing seemed very attractive, we decided to sit on the idea for a few months before getting back with them.

Those months of discussion with our team helped us realize that we hated the idea of tailoring our content for a sponsor. It frankly just feels really gross and not what our show is about. We’ve worked hard to be very authentic in our discussions and if we were to interrupt those great organic conversations with a commercial then it just wouldn’t be the same show. So we are not going to accept advertisers… EVER.

If you are not familiar with the platform PATREON, its time you are. This platform is similar to YouTube and allows you to watch content from creators you like. The only difference is that YOU (the fan) are the sponsor. We’ve always felt like we answer to our fans anyway so this is a natural progression for us and we hope you see it that way too. When you join as a podcast supporter on Patreon, you get to decide how much you’d like to support the show with different tiers starting at $5/month.

We put a lot of time and effort into this show and we think it shows (no pun intended). Your ongoing support as a patron helps us keep the show REAL, Ad Free, and exactly what we and the fans want. No censorship, no ads, ever.

Starting now, you will only find our full unedited shows and live streams on Patreon. We will still post the audio-only version of our podcast on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. YouTube will be home to clips from various episodes old and new. Our website will be the hub for the latest news on upcoming guests, and other interesting things we might be doing.

So if you’ve been enjoying the show so far, we hope to see you again over on our Patreon.
