About Road to the Skeleton Coast

Welcome to the Patreon page for Road to the Skeleton Coast.

Each week on our podcast, Brendan Kelly sits down with Tim Crisp to discuss one his records with an attention to detail that those who have listened to any Lawrence Arms, Falcon, Wandering Birds, Broadways, and Slapstick can listen to and learn new things, and gain more perspective on. Not to mention the fact, that these stories are coming from one of punk rock's greatest storytellers. While Tim pulls all the details together, Brendan brings them to life and brings us in to hear the stories behind his songs, from their creation and into recording, release, and legacy. 

The thing is, even when the podcast goes into great detail about Brendan's songs and records, there's still a lot left on the table at the end of each episode. That's where Patreon comes in. 

Each week, along with episodes of Road to the Skeleton Coast, we will be dropping a Patreon-exclusive supplemental episode of Liner Notes. Liner Notes will provide listeners with the type of stories further discussion of musical influences, cultural influences attached to the record discussed on the podcast that week. It will also be a time for us to take listener questions and more.

Along with weekly episodes of Linter Notes, we will be dropping bi-weekly podcasts about a wide array of topics from punk to the Simpsons, movies, Rock of Love. It's a blank page and we're excited to fill it! 

By supporting the Patreon you'll be helping us cover the costs that come from researching, recording, editing, and hosting the podcast. More importantly, you can help Tim pay for Brendan's friendship. But in all serious, you're joining what we're envisioning as a fun and interactive community space. We've been having a blast so far, we want the good times to continue, and we want you to be a part of it with us.
