Hey, we get it: finances are tight! If you want to chip in a bit to help us cover the costs of our regular episodes, every bit helps! This tier doesn't come with bonus content, but it does come with earnest gratitude from your Book Fight hosts.

For the last several years, we've been putting out free weekly episodes of the Book Fight podcast--hour-long discussions of books, short stories, essays, the craft of writing, literary gossip, weird fan fiction, and sometimes Pop Tarts. We're both writers, editors, and college professors, though we're also famously dumb: this is not, by any stretch, The New Yorker's books podcast.

Here on Patreon we're offering three bonus episodes a month. That includes a monthly installment of Book Fight After Dark, where we take a break from reading serious literature to instead discuss romance novels in their many forms (Nascar romances! Amish romances! Time-traveling erotic romances involving cavemen! And so much more!).

Your Patreon membership also gets you two monthly mini-episodes called Reading the Room, where we answer your questions about how to behave. How do you talk to a writer after their reading without seeming like a creep? How do you talk to your friends about their bad taste in books without sounding like a snob? Should you expect your spouse or partner to read (or care about) your creative work?

If $5/month is too steep, we get it, and you can support the show for as little as $2. Any contribution helps us to offset the costs (and time!) of producing a weekly podcast that will always be free to everyone. But $5 is the threshold for getting the bonus content, which we think is a pretty good deal, all things considered.
