We're ready to talk Twins, maybe even daily, for this historic season, but we need your help.

For almost a decade, we've been podcasting weekly about some pretty crummy Minnesota Twins teams. This year, that all changed. Now we're getting lots of requests for more frequent podcasts, which we would love to do, but carving out the time to do so can be difficult to justify.

That is, unless there's enough interest from the community. That's where you come in.

We will record at least one additional 30-60 minute, commercial-free episode each week for the remainder of this crazy 2019 Twins season, with the possibility for as many as five extra shows per week if the interest level from Patreon supporters (and the Twins' play) warrants it.

Those willing to pay $1 per episode will be the only people able to listen to these exclusive, "off the record" podcasts. If we record twice in a week, you'll be charged $2. If we record five times in a week, it's $5. Whatever the case, it'll be cheaper than a beer at Target Field.

We'll analyze trades and signings as they happen, discuss call-ups right away, break down particularly interesting games, deal with rumors and speculation in real time, and answer plenty of mailbag questions. In fact, Patreon subscribers will get access to a special, private e-mail address they can use to send us questions directly.

If there are at least 200 people interested enough to subscribe, we'll commit to doing this. If not, that's fine too. We get it, money doesn't grow on trees. Either way, you can still count on our weekly long-form podcast to be released on Sundays, absolutely free, like it has been for eight years.

So what do you say? Do we want to do this? If we get 200 subscribers, we'll start recording our first commercial-free podcast THAT DAY. We'll stop when the season ends, hopefully at the end of October. (Yes, Bonnes is knocking on wood furiously.) We trusted you all to listen when we first started babbling into mics in 2011. We'll trust you to tell us which way to go on this. Either way, thank you so much for all of your past and present support.

Gratefully,
Aaron and John

P.S. We’ve received a lot of questions from people concerned with how many podcasts we might do each month. Here’s why you need not be too concerned about that:
1) When you signup, you have the option of limiting how many podcasts you pay for in a given month.
2) We plan to start pretty slow, partly because we both have time limitations.
3) If we have a week where we do four or five episodes, it will be because you WANT four or five episodes.

Plus, of course, you can change your account anytime. So if you’re new to Patreon (like us), we think you’ll like it. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
