About Challenge Mania

If you're reading this, you are most likely already aware that Challenge Mania is a Podcast hosted by Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager that covers everything Challenge. If you did not know that, we thank you for your blind intrigue and/or apologize for someone sending you the wrong link, either by accident or as sick, twisted joke. It's possible that you may need better friends. You've come to the right place because there's a good chance you make some here.

What makes Challenge Mania awesome is that although Derrick & Scott are the hosts, it is YOU, our friends, that keep the show going! Without the Challenge Maniacs letting us know who YOU want to hear on the show, we wouldn't have a guest list. Without YOU guys blowing those cast members up on social media and letting them know their presence is wanted, needed and demanded, our calls wouldn't be answered as quickly. Without YOU sending in amazing questions based on years and years of viewing experience, we wouldn't sound like we remembered each and every anecdote and noteworthy event in a guest's Challenge career. Without YOU Live on Zoom with us, we wouldn't have a party!

Simply put, without YOU, Challenge Mania would not be the podcast that it is today. 

And because of you, Challenge Mania will be an even better podcast tomorrow. That's why we call you guys, the Patrons, THE POD SQUAD!

It is very important to us that Challenge Mania remain mostly free and accessible to each and every person all over the world. We understand that not everyone has money to spend on entertainment and we are flattered enough that you all dedicate several hours a week to throwing us in your headphones and participating in our silly social media games and antics. That being said, in order to keep the Challenge Mania Podcast free of charge for Maniacs around the world, we are hoping that the Challenge Maniacs who do have the ability to make a pledge towards our future will consider doing so.

"But the show is already free. Why would we do that?" Good question. See, it's that sort of intellect that makes us love you all in the first place. There are two reasons. One is to show your appreciation for the countless hours that Derrick & Scott put into the show each week, from booking guests to research to the time and money that goes into recording, producing, editing and hosting each and every episode. Throw in the time and money necessary for promoting and sharing the show on social media, interacting with the Maniacs, gathering questions and conducting a continuous conversation with each and every one of you. Now, top it all off with the development of promotional materials, stickers, merchandise and Challenge Mania Live Events and Challenge Mania has become a full time, seven-day-a-week venture. If you appreciate all the hard work, time and money that we have and will continue to put back into this show and all its related entities in order to put forth the most enjoyable, interactive experience for die-hard and casual Challenge fans alike, a pledge of any amount you are comfortable with or capable of contributing is much appreciated.

And secondly and more importantly, we are going to make it worth your while. (Cue the air horn)

We have crafted several tiers of participation as a patron and we invite you all to take a look and see what you might be able to swing financially and what prizes or features may entice you to do so. Some of our prizes are physical things like stickers, shirts, tickets and other stuff like that. Some of those will be exclusive to patrons and unable for purchase anywhere else. Also included will be exclusive content that only patrons have access to. This will include bonus podcasts like Double Trouble, All Stars Review, Call Me Mania, Music Mania and more, video content, Live Zoom Parties, Live Zoom Watch-Alongs, bonus Q&As and more! Lastly, we will be offering one-of-a-kind experiences you won't be able to get any other way like receiving a Thank You Call from Derrick & Scott, in-person Meet & Greets at Challenge Mania Live shows, and the chance to APPEAR ON A FUTURE PODCAST! 

The same way we look to you all to give us ideas and inspiration for podcasts, we will do the same for patron incentives. If you guys have cool or fun ideas for what might motivate you or others to make sizable contributions to our cause, please let us know on social media. #ChallengeAccepted

Once again, we just want to make it clear that simply by being a listener of our show, by tuning in every week and by hopefully telling your friends and family about it along the way, you are already in our hearts. If in addition to that, you find yourself able and willing to become one of our patrons, we promise, we will make it worth your while and will make it our mission to demonstrate our gratitude in fun and innovative ways that only we can come up with! If you are wondering whether it is worth it, ask one of the longtime members of the Pod Squad. If you need more proof than that, simply email us at [email protected] and we are happy to send you a free sample of that Bonus Content we churn out several times a week.
