For over a year now, we have aimed to make a funny and informative podcast about all things macabre, something that we hoped other weirdos like us would like to listen to. And some of you actually do! And you like it enough that several of you have asked us to create a Patreon, which is so completely amazing and flattering! We never really considered it starting out, but after a year's worth of hosting fees, website fees, and new equipment (not to mention the shear amount of hours that go into researching and editing for just a single episode), we've decided that the time is right. Just to make it clear-we don't expect to get paid. It has been and probably always will be a labor of love. But if some of you feel compelled to throw a couple bucks our way to recoup some of the money we've put into the show, then we will humbly accept. We thank you all in advance for any and all contributions made, but most of all-thank you for listening and sharing.

Tiers
The "Can you help me with my water bill?" Tier
$1 or more per month 5 patrons
Much like the crazy lady that flagged Billy down on the road to ask for help with her water bill, this tier is the cheapest. Just $1 will get you a shout out on the show, access to Patron-only bonus audio content each month, and our undying love!
The Joe Nickell (balls deep) Tier
$3 or more per month 5 patrons
For just $3, you'll get a Martinis and the Macabre sticker that you can show off! You'll feel as important as Joe Nickell does at one of his lectures. You'll also get a shout out on the show, access to the bonus audio content each month, and our undying love!
The "Stay Safe" Tier
$5 or more per month 3 patrons
For $5, we're going to reward you for "staying safe" with an official Martinis and the Macabre Certificate of Achievement for avoiding heart failure and tuberculosis! You will also get the shout out, the sticker, access to the bonus audio content each month, and our undying love!
The Olive Garden Tier
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
For our "higher end" Patrons, $10 will get you a heart failure/tuberculosis key chain, shaped like an awareness ribbon and hand-made with paracord by Billy "Snugglebunny" Jones himself! And, of course, you'll get the shout out, the sticker, the certificate, access to bonus audio content each month, and our undying love!
The "Maybe you're a baller, yo!" Tier
$25 or more per month 1 patron
If you're a true baller and want to show it with a $25 pledge, not only will you get all of the above (the shout out, the sticker, the certificate, the keychain, the bonus audio content, and our love-did we say its undying?), you will have the opportunity to introduce one of the episodes and will be listed in the podcast shownotes! Your name and voice, forever connected to Martinis and the Macabre, for all of internet eternity...Truly baller.
The Platinum Tier (AKA The Martinis and the Macabre Hall of Fame)
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
We're not expecting any takers on this, but for $50 a month, you can freaking co-host an episode with us! You'll also get to do the introduction to the show with an acknowledgment in the shownotes, the sticker, the certificate, the keychain, access to the bonus audio content, and our undying love! (No shout out, seeing as you would literally be on the show.) *We reserve the right to edit any audio recorded for an episode with a co-host and/or not publish said audio if we feel you're being a total douche. We like funny. We like morbid. We don't like completely offensive fucktards.* At this level, you will truly reach Platinum status!
Goals
$87 of $100 per month
We'd like to cover our monthly hosting fees and what it approximately cost each month (when breaking the annual fee into monthly amounts) for the website, which together are around $50/month. With another $50/month, we'd like to recoup some of the expenses from the past year (new laptop, microphones, headphones, etc.) as well as costs associated with stickers, stationary, printer ink and paper, and other items used for creating the podcast and making Patreon perks. We would like to get a P.O. Box for listeners to send mail to us and would eventually like to have merch again as well. With your help, we can get back to making some great Martinis and the Macabre items!
