$14
per podcast
Join tabletop RPG aficionados Chrispy and Tim for a trip through the game of D&D and the world that surrounds it. Every episode, we pick one topic to talk about, and we don't stop talking until we run out of words. Enjoy a closer look at the game, the way it's played, and the culture surrounding our hobby.

Critical Wits is a side project for both of its hosts, which means that there are often substantial delays between episode releases. With your support, we'll be able to prioritize the creation of new Critical Wits content, including more frequent releases (from "occasional" to "regular"!) as well as written articles by both Tim and Chrispy, including various thinkpieces and examinations of tabletop game rules, history, and culture. We might even be able to create other, more involved projects, like videos!

Your pledge will go toward covering the costs of running the podcast, including web hosting and the cost of new equipment, as well as helping support its hosts, starving self-employed creative Tim and starving full-time academic Chrispy.

Be the decider! Pledge 1 dollar per episode, and you'll get to vote in patron-only polls deciding what the topic of the next episode will be. You'll get access to our Big List of Potential Topics, and get to vote up what you want us to talk about. At least every other episode, we'll discuss a topic chosen by you, the patrons!

Hang Out with Us! Pledge at least $5 per episode, and you'll be invited to patron-only Google Hangouts with the Critical Wits folks at least once a month! You'll get to schmooze with us, ask us questions about D&D or basically anything else, ask us to elaborate on opinions we've expressed on the show or make us defend our beliefs as you viciously attack our credibility, live on the Internet! The hangouts will be posted to the Critical Wits YouTube account, so it's almost like a free extra podcast!

Sponsor Shout-out! Pledge 35 dollars per episode, not only will we give you a shout-out at the start of each episode you support, we'll also plug your own projects! Just give us a URL or other information about where to find you, and we'll highlight your work on the show right at the start!

Guest Host! Pledge at least 60 dollars per episode, and you'll get to guest host an episode with us at least once a year! We'll Skype you in (unless you want to travel to the Vegas area to meet us in person) and talk about any topic of your choosing, even if we've done it before! You can call us mean names, and we'll just have to take it, because we can't do this show without your support!
Goals
$14 of $100 per podcast
Upon reaching $100 per episode, we'll be able to set aside time to come together and create a podcast episode at least once a month. Since we always record episodes together in person and neither of us have transportation, not to mention that both of us are typically preoccupied with our own projects or studies, this is typically something of an ordeal - but your pledge can make it happen!
