Hey Zedheads, welcome to our Patreon page!



The Short Version
From the first day we started The Walking Dead 'Cast, Karen and I wanted to do two things:
  1. Enhance people's experience of The Walking Dead (and any other material we cover).
  2. Have fun.
We hope we are enhancing your experience of the material we cover. We hope you're having fun right along with us! If you've found value in what we bring, please consider supporting us here.



What We're About

When we started, we decided if we were going to do a podcast we were going to give it our all, throw ourselves into it, and make it really special. We wanted our podcast to kick ass. So we put a lot of care into our sound quality, music, segment intros, web design, and podcast art. And ever since, we routinely spend a lot of time doing things like:
  • Analyzing the episodes and movies we cover
  • Giving insightful, opinionated analysis
  • Researching behind-the-scenes info
  • Collecting and answering your feedback
  • Curating interesting news
  • Throwing fun contests with great prizes
  • Thinking up creative segments and bits
  • Arming ourselves for the impending zombie apocalypse (rarrr!)
  • Persuading celebrity guests to come on and coming up with interesting, in-depth questions to ask them
  • Meticulously editing each podcast to keep it tight
  • Bringing in other talented, fun cohosts and segment hosts like Melissa Hutchison, Duncan, Grace, and Mr. Blahg to keep things fresh and varied. 

On top of that, I know you guys have noticed that Karen and I value genuineness, in how we present ourselves and even in our advertising.

And even more, we value community! We love interacting with you guys and bringing you into the show through your calls and emails, and getting to meet a lot of you at events. (And we're excited about our new patron-only Facebook group, Zedheads Unite!, where we can all chat and you guys can post directly to the timeline.) 

With all the preparation and groundwork we do, there's almost nothing I love more than kicking back with a beer, loosening up, and just seeing where things flow. I get such a charge out of it! The thrill of the unexpected :)

Why Support Us
Over the years, people have asked me how they can support us, but I haven't had anything to tell them. Now we do. If you like what we do and would feel good supporting us, here you go. Thank you! :)

But why start a Patreon now? Well, I'm at a crossroads. I love podcasting, but with the increasing demands of my day job and a baby on the way, I'm probably going to have to do less of it. But what I'd really like to do is quit my day job and do MORE podcasting!!! 

Through advertising and Walker Stalker Con I'm making almost half of what I need to make this a full time job. If I can make up the rest through this campaign, then you guys will continue to get everything we do—The Walking Dead 'Cast, House Podcastica, Westworld 'Cast, Legion 'Cast, and American Godcast —plus I'll be able to pick up a couple of more podcasts over the year.

Here are a few specific things I'd love to do:
  • A Westworld podcast with David (check! see Westworld 'Cast :) 
  • A joint project with the Bald Move guys (we've just talked, but I'm excited and hope it goes through) (check! See Legion 'Cast)
  • And, ANNOUNCEMENT! Karen and I want to start The Jason & Karen Show (!!) during a WD hiatus, so we can expand what we talk about. (stay tuned....)

Goals
$997 of $2,000 per month
Keep This Thang Going!
If we reach $2,000 per month by the end of 2017, I (Jason) will commit to doing at least another year's worth of podcasts—and most likely beyond. I'll keep podcasting about some of the best shows on TV, of which I still hold The Walking Dead to be one, and maybe I'll even throw you a curveball and start an additional podcast about something completely different. 

This is what it will take, along with advertising $$ and WSC $$, for me to be able to continue podcasting as a career. If we don't reach this amount, I'll need to scale back my podcasting and find a new day job to pay the billz.

So yes, that means the very time-intensive Walking Dead 'Cast may come to an end.
