Quite Frankly is a nightly podcast, recorded in a live, cozy, interactive setting; a show for News, and Uncensored Social Commentary, in a Stream of Consciousness format.

I want to continue to make this into a place for deep conversation with interesting guests; a place where History is interpreted fairly to gain a more wholesome, hopeful perspective on the world; and a place where nostalgia, movies, music, and the arts add color and context to all of the Black and White issues of the current age.

With your support, I know I can continue to develop and turn out a product that will get sharper, more inclusive, and more courageous as the platform grows.

Thank you for reading!
Rewards
The Follow-Back Package
$5 or more per month 138 patrons
You want to pitch in $5 toward the monthly operation. You are a good person, don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.


You get a spot in the Nightly Credit Roll, and a Twitter Follow-Back! I always reach out to personally thank new Patrons/Sponsors, BE SURE TO GIVE ME YOUR TWITTER HANDLE THEN. Okay, love you bye.

The "Mailsack!"
$10 or more per month 53 patrons
Mailbag members will always have feature time on the podcast every week!
  • One of your question is read-off and answered live on air, every week
  • This includes a big, loving shout out, obviously.


Get creative! I'll answer personal questions, hypothetical questions, and offer opinions on Politics, History—Whatever!  The stranger the questions get, the better this bit becomes. 


*Unused questions do not roll-over.

The 1776 Club
$17.76 or more per month 12 patrons (sold out!)
The 1776 Club was inspired by the viewers who began pledging $17.76 on their own. I was so moved that I found something special to do:

Limited to 10 people, you're in the nightly credit roll, BUT you will also be getting an exclusive hand-written letter. We will become pen pals, just like Jefferson and Adams were, at the end of their lives, when they stopped hating each other.


PENPAL PATRON WILL RECEIVE THEIR FIRST LETTER ON THE FIRST MONTH. From there, we are on a reply-basis.  Take your time, there is no rush!

War Department Pen Pals
$18.68 or more per month 15 patrons (sold out!)
The letter-writing continues! It would be impossible for me to write more than 10 hand-written letters a month without falling behind, so we will honor the invention of the Typewriter (1868) by adding an addition 15 spots for pen pals.  I'm going to be like the typists in the War Department from Saving Private Ryan every month.


Aside from your inclusion in the nightly credits, every letter will be personal, signed, and doodled on by me.

The Awkward Polaroid Club
$20 or more per month 22 of 30 patrons
Every month you get an envelope in the mail. Inside of this envelope is a freshly-taken Polaroid capturing a frame out of the day in the life, behind the scenes, at the studio. 


The Polaroid will have a caption, and a signature. You're in the Nightly Credit Roll, you get a Twitter Follow-Back,  and you're encouraged to submit a question to be answered On Air every month.

Goals
$2,602 of $5,000 per month
This benchmark is the beginning of what I'd like to call 'Heaven on Earth.'

All of our basic production/rent/utilities/labor needs will be met.
This is when I can fund better Guest Booking efforts, Scripted Video Projects, Significant Equipment Upgrades, and I will have travel money to fund periodic trips across the US and Europe; visiting historical landmarks, and hanging out with interesting people. Think Dave Attell's old show "Insomniac" but just fit to my personal interests. Sky is the limit.
