Hello! We're Amanda Jean (@amandahjean) and Austin Chant (@austinchanted), two queer people who work in publishing industry (Austin's a writer and reader, Amanda's an editor). Our first podcast, The Hopeless Romantic, is an LGBTQIA-themed romance and media podcast with content aimed at writers, readers, publishers, and everyone in between. Episodes tackled everything from trans representation, how to write sex scenes, advice for new authors, and featured interviews with authors like CS Pacat, KJ Charles, Jim Grimsley, Megan Derr, and more.

After over two and a half years, we decided to end THR at forty episodes. Our next project, The Red Pen, a podcast where we cut up fiction to see what it's made of, is currently in development with plans to release in summer or early fall 2018. We're keeping THR up as an archive after is conclusion; hosting that and producing The Red Pen will continue to cost money, which is where our Patrons come in! 

Both podcasts will be free to listeners, but folks who pledge will have access to: outtakes, content edited for time, the inevitable "they got drunk and tried to record" audio, and can prompt the hosts with specific topics they'd like to hear about.

Any little bit helps us keep up with costs!

You get access to bloopers, cut content, and other miscellany we rustle up (our goal is one item of bonus content per month, in addition to regular podcast production).

And of course there's the priceless reward of knowing you're an awesome person who helped Austin and Amanda keep producing podcasts!

You get access to bloopers, cut content, and anything else, but you also get a shout-out on the podcast (if you want it). Neat, right?

You'll also be able to bask in the knowledge that you're a giving soul who will likely reap what you sow. Somehow. In the future.
Pledge $10 or more per month

Not only do you have access to the usual (bloopers, cut content, a shout-out on the podcast, and whatever else we post), you can also request a 10-minute (or more; we talk a lot) audio clip on the subject of your choice. If you've ever wanted Austin and Amanda's opinion on something, from the obscure to the obvious, this is your chance!

You will also qualify for sainthood. Or knighthood. Or something.

Why are you the best person who walks the earth??? You get everything as above and also a Skype (or Gchat, or whatever) conversation with the hosts, if for some bizarre reason that's something you'd want.
