About Batman: The Animated Podcast

Hello! I'm Justin Michael.  Since 2015, I've hosted a podcast about my favorite childhood cartoon, the very excellent Batman: The Animated Series. And the podcast is unsurprisingly called... Batman: The Animated Podcast.

When the show began...
It was pretty much my only job. I brought in guests who worked on the original series like Kevin Conroy, Paul Dini, Andrea Romano, Eric Radomski... and many, many more. I also interviewed fans of the show from the world of comedy, film, and animation.

Now, in 2021...
Work has kept me too busy to update the show weekly. But I love making this podcast and I love the very kind and loyal audience, so I try to release batches of new episodes at least once or twice a year. The goal is to cover every episode before calling it a day!

Where's your money going?
After a brief stint at a network, the show is back to being a one-man production. That means I do everything at home, from producing the show to editing and uploading the final cuts.

Monthly Hosting Fees
Every episode is ad-free and available for anybody to listen to! That's the way I like to keep it. Not everybody can afford to pay for a podcast, and it seems to make a lot of people happy.

So your money directly pays for the monthly hosting fees to keep the archive of episodes available and free. And moving forward, I'm looking to hire an editor to help me out.

Editing tends to be the most time-consuming part of the process and when I'm busy, means that I just don't have time to release new eps. So I'd like to hire an editor for any new batches of episodes. This means you'll get new episodes, and more than I can handle alone.

How much does it cost to back the show?
Literally whatever you want. $1 to a Wayne Foundation $1billion.

While the Patreon featured rewards in the past, like stickers and shout-outs and even guest interviews... the show is simpler and more intermittent now. If you support the show and want a sticker, let me know! I've got them in droves. But for now, no specific rewards.

As I reconfigure the show, I'd love to hear from you about what types of rewards are most meaningful to you.

Thank You!
Thank you for supporting the show over the years and in the future. I really appreciate it!
$14.09 of $35 per month
Hosting the website and archive of over 75 ad-free episodes for free costs $35/month.

When I'm releasing new episodes, I receive anywhere between 10-14k listeners a month. And 5-10k with no new eps!

That's a lot of people who listen, so if 35 people pitched in a dollar... well, that'd be very nice.
