Hey Warheads!

Thanks for stopping by. Creating and working on Trivial Warfare has been one of the best experiences of my life. I'm thankful every day for the connection with our listeners and the relationships that have been created as a result of the show.

This patreon page has been created for people who enjoy the show and want to make donations to support it and keep it strong. My first goal is to get enough in donations so that the show pays for itself. My second goal is for the donations to be able to cover all of the cool things I want to do with the show. Lastly, the stretch goal is to make enough money from the show that I can retire for my full time job and begin working on TW full time as well as creating awesome new shows.

If you're here and you don't feel like the show is worth contributing to then that's cool. I don't want you to feel any pressure and I won't think less of you. In fact, I'd like to thank you for listening. I think you're awesome.

On the other hand, if you feel like you've gotten something out of the show and you want to begin to support it then would love for you to choose a tier on the right hand side of the page and set up a donation. I can't wait for the day when I can open up the Trivial Warfare Army page on the website and see a huge list of people and where they are in the army.

Thanks so much for all of your support!
Jonathan

Goals
350 – reached! patrons
All I need is about Tree Fiddy...patrons that is. That's right, our next goal is to reach Tree Fiddy. It's going to be awesome when we get there. How do I know? Because I'm going to give you a chance to win MORE MONEY!

Currently, I run a monthly contest where I draw 3 names from our list patrons at the Captain rank or higher. Those 3 submit their favorite trivia question to the show and our guests that week will vote on which one is their favorite. The winner each month wins a cool $100! In addition, the prize jumps to $250 the first month of each new quarter.

When we get to Tree Fiddy patrons I'm going to give away even more! Each month I'll give away $250 to the winner and the first month of the quarter the prizes will jump to $500! We're already giving away an awesome prize every month. If you're a captain you're already eligible. Help us get to Tree Fiddy and more than double our giveaways!
