Hello and welcome to the Bygones Patreon page, run for us by Elaine Vassal - the true entrepreneur of the Cage & Fish office. And because she is just really very good at her job ok?! 
We're so happy you're here! Let us show you to the unisex, where we'll be demonstrating a perfect dismount in your honour.

What is Bygones: The Ally McBeal Podcast?

Well, it kinda does what it says on the tin. But for the uninitiated - Bygones: The Ally McBeal Podcast is a bi-weekly podcast in which sisters and hosts Laura-Jane & Eleanor Parker rewatch every episode of Ally McBeal, through today's eyes! If you were a fan of Ally McBeal back in the day - we think you'll love us. And if even if you never saw an episode - we have a more than a few listeners in that boat that enjoy us all the same! Either way, subscribe! That's a Fishism.

Why do we have a Patreon?

We LOVE hosting Bygones, but, as anyone who has ever started a podcast knows, it is A LOT of work! We spend several hours on every single episode, from recording, to editing, to post-production on the audio to make sure it sounds ok and our raucous laughter doesn't hurt your ears (we probably have to do more of this than other podcasts - damn our raucous laughter!). And even once the podcast is done, we also spend further hours making ENDLESS GIFS for you all to enjoy on social media. Oh, and let's not forget the many many spreadsheets that Laura-Jane keeps to track our Verdict of the Week votes. AND we haven't even included the work that goes into sourcing and prepping any guests we get on (which we totally want to do more of!). I MEAN, IT COULD BE A FULL TIME JOB! 

Besides the time and love we put in, it also costs money to run a podcast - we pay for podcast hosting and distribution, recording equipment and software. Also, so that we are face-to-face for recordings to bring you the very best podcast content we can, we travel every other month to record since we don't live in the same city. Patreon helps us to cover some of those outgoings.

Make Enough Money, Everything Else Will Follow.

It continually blows our tiny minds that people other than our friends and family listen to our podcast. We LOVE (and love to hate) Ally, and we are having THE BEST time picking apart the show and characters and singing along to Vonda with all of you. 

If you like us, please tell your friends, family and therapists about us! Whenever you shout us out on social media we do a John & Hayley (S1 deep cut) hop! 

And of course, if you are able to support us here on Patreon, we would be SO grateful!

With all our love and BYGONES,

Laura-Jane & Eleanor
