Comic Book Club is a live, weekly talk show in New York City - and podcast every week on The Internet(tm). We've been running the show for over ten years, with hundreds of guests, multiple write-ups in the New York Times, and have appeared at conventions all over the country.

...But to do all this costs a fair amount of money each year. The live show is free for the audience, and the podcast is free for the listeners, but the three hosts - Justin, Pete and Alex - lay out a fair amount of money every week.

As of July 23, 2018, we've reached out initial monthly goal (as long as everyone sticks with it!) That covers:

$50/week: Venue fee.
$20/week: Tech director.
$200/year: Website hosting and domain registration.

We've added a second goal, with the aim of vastly improving our audio quality and output. Here's the breakdown for that:

$199 x2 (one time purchase): Zoom H4n Recorder
$39 x2/week: Podcast recording studio time

We currently own one recorder for snagging the live show, and use it for our other podcasts. However, as we've upped our output to multiple podcasts a week, we've needed to be more flexible with time and location. Getting a set recording time in a studio, as well as individual recorders, will allow us to A) get better audio quality for most shows, and B) record even when one of us is located remotely (vs. terrible Skype quality).

Plus, of course, you know... Comics. Which ain't cheap. We've made it by for years by soliciting donations at the live show, but to keep going are really hoping to supplement the costs from our awesome listeners at home.

We (Justin, Pete and Alex) don't make any money from this show, and haven't for over a decade. Everything we get, we put right back into it. We just want to keep doing it because we love comics, and we love talkin' about 'em!

Not only that, but we've got a ton of TV podcasts going. Here's how you can sample 'em all, and see if we're worth supporting:

Goals
$492 of $1,030 per month
Goal #1 reached, on to #2! If we reach this goal, we'll be able to greatly improve our audio quality for the show. It breaks down into purchasing 2 Zoom h4n recorders to augment our current stash + renting a podcast studio for two hours a week. If we can make this happen, maybe we'll stop sounding BAD.
