The episode might be a never-before-shared interview for Andrew's book Chefs, Drugs, and Rock & Roll; extras culled from the cutting-room floor; or interviews conducted just for Patreon supporters. Whatever the subject matter, these bonus shows will be one of a kind and truly special.

This membership tier also enables you to participate in monthly Patreon-member-only polls (starting May 1, 2020), with results to be shared on the podcast.

MAIN COURSE members will also have access to Andrew's monthly exclusive blog post with behind-the-scenes stories and observations about how the podcast is made (first post to debut May 1, 2020);

About

Greetings, Listeners!

My podcast Andrew Talks to Chefs has been a labor of love since I launched it 2017. In "normal" times, we feature deep-dive biographical interviews with the best and most popular chefs on the planet. During the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, we shifted gears temporarily to offer nightly 30-minute special reports to an industry in crisis. Whatever the context, it's been a pleasure and honor to share the voices behind great food and restaurants with all of you.

I'm thrilled to share that we've joined Patreon to offer listeners the opportunity to support the show, and enjoy extra benefits and content. If you're not familiar with Patreon, here's a short (1 1/2 minutes) video that energetically describes it in easy-to-understand terms:


Pretty cool, right?

Starting in April 2020, I am creating additional content that will be exclusively available to those who support me via Patreon, such as special Toqueland blog posts, interviews or interview extras (i.e., portions of aired interviews that had to be cut for timing reasons), and themed episodes that examine particular subjects. So in addition to supporting the podcast, at most membership levels, you will receive something extra for your contribution. 

Because I'm launching this campaign in the midst of a crisis for the world and the restaurant industry, I will be donating 50% of each new Patreon member's first month's dues to a relief fund or charity associated with our bonus content. (For example, in our launch month of April 26 - May 31, 2020, when David Kinch is guesting, 50% of all first-time payments, after Patreon's commission, transfer fees, and taxes are deducted, will be donated to the Manresa Employee Relief Fund.)

I hope you'll consider becoming a part of Andrew Talks to Chefs' ongoing growth and success and that you find real value in what we're offering.

Thanks for reading, and for being such a treasured part of my professional life.

- Andrew
