Keeping Wanderlustis creating a Podcast that's half travel guide, half love story & half sober
Select a membership level
You love the show and want to show your support.
You recognize that every penny counts and Wanderlust Nation salutes you. Included with the Support membership package are:
- Early access to the Keeping Wanderlust private Facebook group (when it launches)
- Behind the scenes videos of our podcast recording sessions.
- A huge hug. If we ever meet in person.
- An animated GIF file created from the recording of that huge hug
- Discounts on merchandise available in the Keeping Wanderlust store (which doesn't exist yet).
You really love the show and want to be more than just a spectator.
The value you derive from listening to the podcast is worth almost as much to you as your Netflix subscription. Included with Citizenship are all the same benefits that supporters get, just at a slightly higher cost to you.
We'll also let you claim your own nation state on the fictional Keeping Wanderlust map (which doesn't exist yet), complete with custom naming rights, selection of noble title (other than Lord), and a hyperlink to anything on the web (within the realm of sensibility and good taste).
There are only 100 countries on this make-believe map, and we have a strict one person per country immigration policy to limit overcrowding. Once all countries are claimed we will no longer be accepting new citizens unless someone steps down from their throne.
You love the show, want to scream it from the roof tops AND GET FREE STUFF!
Select this membership level and receive the following perks:
- Your name mentioned in the credits of the show (or the name of one of your social media profiles)
- An actual postcard in the mail from each new country we visit.
- A Keeping Wanderlust branded hoodie (or t-shirt if it doesn't get cold in your part of the world).
- The latest and greatest Google Nest Hub with access to our private Google Photos album containing videos and pictures from our travels.
Disclaimer: While lordship includes all the benefits bestowed upon supporters, it does not automatically include citizenship benefits. If you would like to stake claim to your own Nation State on the Keeping Wanderlust map, you must apply for Citizen membership in addition to being a Lord.
Free stuff is shipped only if a valid mailing address is supplied during pledge checkout and after maintaining good standing for at least two months as a Wanderlust Nation Lord.
Due to limitations imposed by recent legislation which controls the ratio of Lords to Citizens, Keeping Wanderlust Nation can only have 25 Lords at the same time. Once the House of Lords is full, no additional Lords will be accepted until such a time comes when a Lord volunteers to step down from his/her post, meets an untimely end, or when their credit card expires.
If Lordship is full, and you still want to support the show, please select the Sponsor membership level.
Originally Kris & Kayla sat outside bus depots and busy train stations in New York City with paper cups in their hands asking for people to donate their hard earned money to support the Keeping Wanderlust cause.
Needless to say, that business model did not scale too well considering that there are only two of them and people didn't seem to love the idea of a long form podcast blasting from a boombox in a public space.
They then tried pitching the show to the major radio stations and were told that they just don't have the right look. Apparently neither one of them have a face for radio.
Alas, they were turned on to Patreon, where the biggest fans of the Keeping Wanderlust show can unburden themselves of their discretionary income to support one of the greatest causes of all... keeping the Keeping Wanderlust show on the air!
By pledging a small amount of coin each month you're rewarded with exclusive membership status within Wanderlust Nation. Which basically affords you all the same privileges as someone who doesn't give us money, with the exception of that warm and fuzzy feeling that accompanies just about any donation. If you choose not to part with your cash, you can still head over to KeepingWanderlust.com and enjoy the fruits of our labor knowing that someone else is footing the bill for you.
Kris and Kayla will eventually will be starting a private Facebook group as soon as they hit a meaningful number of members. At which point they will be giving members access to unedited recordings, influence into topics discussed on future episodes, an occasional on air shout-out and the ability to participate in contests where they'll give stuff away from their many sponsors (currently at zero). Until then your money will be put towards costs associated with creating and hosting the podcast, which currently runs about $500 per month.
