We're a podcast that explores America, looking at cities from San Francisco to Savannah, New York to Nashville, and everywhere in between. We'll showcase the stuff that makes each of them great, talk to some really cool podcast hosts, and learn a whole lot about flags and interesting history.

This is my first podcast and I'm really excited for how it's going to turn out. We're starting in North Carolina, my home state, and proceeding from there in no particular order. Each state is its own mini-season, and each episode is a city. We'll probably cover 5-8 cities per season, and try to visit cities that aren't just the big ones everybody has already heard about. (We'll do those, too, though.)

I was hoping to cover costs for the show myself, but, until I can get some advertisers on board, I'm going to still have to be working a job on top of doing this show. As such, my release schedule may be somewhat unpredictable- I've also got to plan trips to, like, Wyoming or whatever state is up next, and that isn't a super easy process. In lieu of a standard weekly/alternating weekly/monthly/whatever sort of schedule, I'll just keep everybody as posted as I can on each episode's progress through social media channels (we also have a reddit page, at reddit.com/user/domestictourism. I'm working on making a subreddit, but it's a surprisingly annoying process.

Hopefully, at some point, I'll get the show to the point where it's self-sustaining on ads and I won't need to fully rely on Patreon anymore. Until then, my eternal gratitude goes out to all you trailblazers who donate and help me follow a long-running dream of mine! I'm absolutely ecstatic for this podcast and the things I've got in store for all of you.

Travel well!

Townie
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
Townies are the heart and soul of the United States. While they may be often overlooked, townies do what they can in their local area to make things happen. Your donation buys me a snack for the road!
Citizen
$3 or more per month 0 patrons
Citizens are basically Townies in a bigger town. You've got more resources to make more happen! Your donation buys me a snack and a drink for the road. Delicious!


You get to listen to each episode before it comes out to the rest of the general public! I'm still deciding on how long I want this bonus to be, but I'm thinking maybe 2 days.

Statesperson
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
You, Statesperson, are a real mover and/or shaker! You're leading the charge and helping the Domestic Tourism Podcast flourish as we explore every corner of the country. Your donation pays for a car wash so I'm not driving across the country covered in dirt.


You have access to audio which others don't! Perhaps it's something funny that was said in our Podcast Spotlight, but we decided was too naughty for the main feed. Perhaps it's a goofy road-trip karaoke moment! It's a little extra look into not only your host(s) but also the creative process and the little bits that get left behind.

Emissary
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
You, bold emissary, have a truly admirable passion for the show! Your generous donation will go far toward keeping this podcast on the air. You'll be consulted on what to talk about on the show when I come to your area!
Ambassador
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
You, Ambassador, go above and beyond to make sure the wheels keep rolling for the show! Your donation gets you a drink (or two) on me when I roll through your town, whether to do an episode there or just passing through. You've earned it!

This tier is meant to be a one-time donation along the lines of a Jumbotron message on one of the Maximum Fun Network podcasts. Want to send a message to your friends or loved ones? Want to just make me say stupid nonsense and record it for you to hear? Buy Billboard space and I'll do just that. (Note: any offensive/tasteless Billboard messages will be discarded without question.)

This is meant to serve as a one-time donation along the lines of a Jumbotron message on one of the Maximum Fun Network podcasts. Got a business or project you want me to plug for you? Let me spread the word of your hard work! If you're running a local business, I'll try to put it in the episode for the nearest city.

So generous! With your incredible donation,  the podcast can continue to explore the country and attain ever-higher standards of production and entertainment. Your donation gets you all the previous bonuses, as well as a hand-knit item from me. If you're into it, I'm thinking of doing your city flag. If you're not into it, let me know otherwise and I'll do a hat or something instead!
