About Elan and Brian

In the winter of 2012, Elan was in Toronto and armed with an endless arsenal of questions about how to improve his fantasy hockey team, while Brian was in Tokyo huddled under a blanket for better acoustics at a tiny kitchen table more than 10000 km away (6000 miles, for the Americans). This is how the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast was born.

At that moment, we never could have known how much fun we were about to have, and how many hockey fans around the world that we were about to connect with. And it's thanks to our audience and supporters that Elan has continued to get Brian's advice on all his fantasy hockey teams since then. Still not sure what's in it for Brian, though..

Our community of patrons is amazing. The cabal of Keeping Karlsson supporters are a knowledgeable, dedicated and hilarious group all bound together by their enjoyment of passion for obsession with fantasy hockey. By becoming a patron, you're not only getting access to our patron-exclusive perks or giving us reason to dream up new ideas to grow and evolve the show. You're also letting us know that we should keep pumping out brand new episodes, packed to the brim with hockey content, each and every week.

Also, patrons from different corners of the world have become guests on the show and hosts of other shows on the Keeping Karlsson Podcast Network! Ben Burnett and Lewis Ezekiel host Short Shift episodes twice a week on Wednesday and Friday mornings during the regular season, with Dave Betten's Stream Scheme and Marcas Ó Callanáin's Stat Attack spinning off into their own feeds.

Perk Descriptions

Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League invitation
The KKUPFL is the world's most fun and competitive fantasy league, painstakingly designed by Elan and Brian featuring Champions-league style promotions and relegations. Manage a team and see how you stack up against Elan, Brian and the rest of the best poolies in the world. See the full set of KKUPFL rules here. (If you join after September 13, 2021, you'll be placed on the KKUPFL management waitlist, where you'll be on standby to take over a team in need of a replacement manager)

Keeping Karlsson Patrons-only Discord Server

Our patrons-only Discord server is the dedicated spot where Brian and Elan are constantly answering fantasy questions more thoroughly and more frequently than anywhere else. You'll also be tapping in to the totally brilliant patron hivemind, talking shop 24/7/365 with all the other die-hards in the Keeping Karlsson patron community.

Monthly Bonus Patroncasts

A patrons-only, mid-week bonus episode at the end of each month where Elan and Brian answer every single patron question thrown at them! You can also join the episode live to get your answers on the spot. You'll also get access to the KK Archives that hold all previous bonus-patron shows.

Show Notes and Live Script, aka 'The Doc'
Believe it or not, Elan and Brian aren't quite brilliant enough to speak off-the-cuff about every player's linemates, stats and analysis for 90 minutes. So, every week, they build 'The Doc' -- master notes that hold the key info for each episode. The Doc has all the big questions and news items that Elan has gathered all week long, along with Brian's corresponding research and answers presented on the show.
570 of 3,379 patrons
Elan and Brian will begin saving capital to open up an amazing restaurant featuring hand-picked craft beer taps paired with creative and delicious premium nacho plates.
