Welcome sweet wanderer. Have ye questions? 

Q: What are Blastropodcast, Muffed Movies, & Rue Britannia?


A: Blastropodcast is an absurd comedy podcast disguised as an educational science show, hosted by a cartoonish, larger-than-life host. It is crazy as a mothercuffer and there is no other show like Blastropodcast. I promise you this; this I swear.
The Muffed Movies podcast features me (Mark) and a special guest comedian improvising popular films by memory with hilarious results.
In Rue Britannia, Blastropodcast's larger-than-life host has a freewheeling discussion about all things British with charming roleplaying game designer (and real Englishman) Grant Howitt.  

All of these shows are  written, recorded, and edited by one fella (it's a-me!). Your support helps keep the tank full and the weirdness blasting full steam ahead.

Q: What do I get for my pledge?

A:
When you support my work, you get access to rare and delightful rewards!  Your level of support unlocks treats like podcast shout outs, hilarious audio adaptations of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven and H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu, and even custom film commentary tracks! But the real thing that you get for your support is the heart-swelling pride that you have helped to continue the production of special and funny things. 

Q: Why should I care? WHY?

A: Honestly, I'm just delighted that you enjoy my work and that you care enough to help it thrive. That means something to me. THANK YOU!

My creations are special mutants, existing solely to amuse and inform their clever, dedicated listenership. We celebrate that uniqueness! Fuck the man! But while we're all fucking him, please remember that my work can only grow so much on its own steam - your support helps it become much more. Your financial contribution makes it possible to outsource the nuts-and-bolts production tasks and focus on creating high quality shows. I dream of producing more shows, taking greater risks, and providing you with crazier Blastropodcast content to enjoy. And that's important because... There is no other show like Blastropodcast.
  
Q: How will my pledge be used?

A: Patrons of Blastropodcast will bask in the knowledge that their hard-earned coin will contribute to the following:

1. Covering website and file hosting expenses.
2. Commissioning artwork for Blastropodcast's website and social media presence.
3. Upgrading recording equipment.
4. Paying for editing software upgrades/licenses.
5. Commissioning/repairing costume pieces for Dottore Balordo's videos and public appearances.
6. Covering expenses for mounting a live show*
7. Slaking Dottore's abyssal beef-hunger.

*Upon reaching "PANIC ATTACK LIVE" goal.
