Of course there are bad ideas. Like, a lot of them. But any idea can be turned into a good story.

No Bad Ideas is the creation of Gabriel Urbina, Sarah Shachat, and Zach Valenti, three writer and artist-types who, in order to stay fresh creatively, have an excuse to hang out with each other once a week, and check in on what they're working on, take a terrible idea they found on the Internet each week and turn it into a compelling narrative. Or as close as they can get in 30 minutes. If you're someone trying to be creative yourself or even if you just appreciate a good story, you'll enjoy listening to Zach, Sarah, and Gabriel figure out how to make sense of the best (worst?) absurdities the internet has to offer. We guarantee there have definitely been worse ideas. 



Mics cost money. Hosting websites costs money. We don't know if you know this already so apologies if it's old news, but if you live in a building you don't own, there's this thing called rent, and actually it costs a lot of money.

It all seriousness, we've turned to our friends at Patreon - who make it easy for artists to get paid to make more art by the folks who want to good art - in order to help defray the costs of making the show and to help us do more and new and ambitious things for all of y'all. Supporting us here will allow us to not only make this weekly podcast A Thing that continues into the foreseeable future. It will also give us the resources to tackle more ambitious creative projects. Gabriel, Sarah, and Zach were the producers behind the Webby-nominated, eight-million-downloads-and-counting, audio drama podcast Wolf 359, as well as Time Bombs, a miniseries that was made entirely in the span of a single week. We've done long projects, and we'd like to do them again. We've done short projects, and we'd like to do them again. We have medium projects we'd like to make for you, and supporting us here will help us bring them into the world. 

Whether or not you've listened to every episode of Wolf 359 or are just joining us because you heard this was the podcast that did silly things with Best Of Craigslist ads, we want to be in the business of telling stories to you as well and as long as we can. So come join us, get some cool rewards, and hear hopefully many more ideas - varying in quality but always entertaining.

Thanks!

If at least one hundred people are interested in this crazy thing, then we'll add a fifth, Patrons-only session of No Bad Ideas every month.

And you all will able to vote on which Bad Idea we use.

And we'll livestream it.

AND we'll take suggestions from you all in chat about how to improve the idea as we go.

¡AND! we will finish off the livestream with a Patrons-only AMA. You'll be absolutely spoiled with ideas, good, bad, and/or ugly.
