Over the last 6 years, the internet radio show-turn-weekly podcast, 'Live From the Barrage,' has gone from “the little show that could” to “the little show that has.” What once began as a gag project amongst a tight-knit group of old friends has blossomed into a legitimate institution, heralded by a legion of devout fans that span the globe.

In that time, LFTB has cumulatively produced over 800 hours of downloadable content — consistently airing new episodes for its listeners each week as it strives to stay relevant in a digital sea saturated by overwhelming podcast content. Remarkably, the show has managed to host notables from various walks of entertainment, including the likes of comedian Marc Maron, actor Martin Starr, rockers Cheap Trick, activists Pussy Riot, author Michael Finkel and recording engineer Steve Albini to name a few — all while attracting the attention of major media outlets such as the New York Times, Fox News & more.

Most remarkable, however, is the fact that the show has aired nearly 250 entertaining episodes at breakneck pace all without the help of any advertising, interns, fancy gear or even a proper production staff. Not many shows of this stature can say (or admit to) that.

Now, in a revitalized effort to move the show forward in a more sustainable direction, the show looks to its amazing fans to help close the gap on some of the unavoidable financial challenges it faces. From upgraded technology to reoccurring web costs, from marketing fees to guest courtesies, the show has reached a point where it needs critical funding more than ever to help sustain itself and continue to output viable content for the foreseeable future.

Live from the Barrage kindly asks it fans to consider supporting the cause with a humble monthly donation. Participating patrons will be rewarded for their contributions with a wide range of sponsorship prizes — each distributed on the twelve (12) month anniversary of their initial subscription/contribution date — as a personal thank you for helping elevate the show to new heights:


  • $1/month & up — Receive a special ‘LFTB’ “Thank You Pack” featuring a one-of-a-kind, 1.25” metal button pin, personally mailed to you by the show’s leading star, Mario Asaro!

  • $5/month & up — In addition to the prize listed above, contributors will also receive a special ‘LFTB’ tote bag. This black, stylish 6 oz. cotton canvas tote will sport the show’s classic ‘MARONES’ logo — a special thank you for 12 months of continued support

  • $10/month & up — In addition to the two (2) prizes listed above, contributors will also receive a classic ‘MARONES’ unisex t-shirt. Ultra-soft and ultra-stylish, contributors will choose their own shirt size (XS-XL) and receive all three aforementioned rewards as a special thank you for 12 months of continued support.

  • $15/month & up — In addition to all three (3) prizes listed above, contributor will also receive a never-before-released ‘LFTB’ hooded pullover sweatshirt! This stylish, all black, heavy weight 9 oz hoodie will feature the show’s classic ‘MARONES’ logo on the front. Contributors will choose their own size (XS-XL). All four (4) items will be sent together as a very special thank you at this, the highest level. 

    Please note that in order to qualify for these rewards, contributors must maintain reoccurring monthly contributions for twelve concurrent months without interruption. Sizes are subject to availability, based on a ‘first comes first serve’ basis. Prizes only available to residents of the 48 lower United States. No prizes will be mailed overseas.
