First of all, thank you for watching our show. We have a blast making it and enjoy bringing you the latest news from Entertainment, Culture, Tech, and General Absurdity. We always promised that we wouldn't ask for your help with funding the show unless we absolutely needed it, and we were amazed to find that a lot of you would support this show to keep it going. 

We want to continue to produce the same quality episodes we've always done and potentially do more... that's where YOU come in. By contributing to the creation of our show you will become a vital part of keeping our brand of comedy and news alive for years to come. We're still looking for ideas on how we can offer incentives for your contributions so let us know what you want! In the meantime, check out some of the levels we currently offer.

Again, your support means the world to us and we love keeping you entertained and informed.

Here are some of our goals and how we'll spend the money:
- We want to become self sustaining and make this show and channel our full-time jobs.
- Paying for Studio Space. LA is an expensive city, and we want to produce the best quality shows we can.
- Hiring an Editor. We will be writing, producing, filming, and editing all of our episodes ourselves which is incredibly time consuming. One day we'd like to hire an editor to take some of this off our plates so we can focus on building more and doing more
- Paying Guests. It's fun to have guests on, but they have to take time out of their busy schedules to appear - we want to give them an incentive to return over and over again
- Creating More Shows. Like we said, our plates will be full at the start, but we'd always like to do more
- Paying Artists. Paying Artists for Graphics Packages and Merch Designs
- Less Ads. We rely heavily on ads and sponsors. We'd like to be far more selective in the future, funding will help this
- More Conventions/Meetups. Taking time away from home and the studio costs money and takes time, we LOVE meeting all of you and covering events and would like to do more of it.
- Live Shows. Not just on twitch, we'd like to do Live Events at Cities here in the US and Around the World.
