I host and produce a weekly biweekly storytelling podcast called Tell It Anyway.  My husband Matt and our friends all help out. The show is three people telling three stories centered around one topic. We've done episodes about childhood, shame, camp, humiliation, drinking, and 'that sinking feeling.'  Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's sad, sometimes it sounds Skype-y.

We use all the available words in the English language, and we don't censor people's stories, so sometimes the stories can be NSFW, or at least NSFTween. 

We've produced more than twenty episodes and its starting to feel like the very beginning of a small thing.  And I'm still really iffy about asking for your dollars.

Why?

Because you give enough. To a lot of great shows. Including the one I work on in the daylight hours (Hint: It's initials are DTNS). But then my boss on that show told me that I should trust the audience to decide what is and is not worth their support.  

So I trust you. 

If you like this show, you can support us with some very valuable laundry quarters. If you like the music on the show, I'd like to be able to send the musicians some of those laundry quarters. If you'd like the audio quality to be better, that's gonna take a few more laundry quarters, so we made a goal for that. If you'd like an actual audio engineer to take over so that Jennie can focus on storytelling, we made a goal for that too. If you'd like us to come to your hometown and do shows with all the amazing people you know, well there's a crazy stretch goal for that too.

Thank you! - Jennie, Matt and Jax

Story MVP - This is too much to pay per episode for a storytelling podcast. Really. But if you're that cool, you'll get all of the above, AND we'll tweet a story about you that starts on the on the TIA twitter feed, continues on Jennie's twitter feed, and ends on the virgin Matt Flanagan twitter feed. Who knows, you could be his first!

All Star Story Champ - Wow. Really. I...  We'll have you on as a guest of the show via Skype. (Or live if you can make it to LA). All of the above, plus we'll make you a Tell It Anyway jersey with our logo, your last name, and your sportball number of choice. Yeah, that's right, a real physical award. That's how cool you are.
Goals
$78 of $100 per episode
I can pay for some show costs - guest parking, fancy waters, wordpress themes, and quarters for Igor, our resident fixer. It will also help us give back to Alex Cook, whose music we often use on this show. And we'll send money to the Band Camp pages of the artists whose music we find on the Free Music Archive, because they're awesome too.
