We're Lasers on the Ride (Hosted by Mike Larsson and Jay Newcomen), the first podcast of its kind. Mainly built around conversation but known to veer off into surreal territory, Lasers on the Ride is, so far, the only podcast edited in a fashion to account for our collectively deteriorating attention span. The conversation is often funny, sometimes heavy, but always candid. We play good music, speak with interesting people, and occasionally stare off into the sky as we ponder sh*t.

After the glow of finishing our first season wore off, we were confronted with the harsh realities of creating this wonderful(our words) podcast. Mainly the cost of replacing old janky equipment, server costs, studio rent to record the damn thing, the innumerable hours spent on preparing and then editing each episode, and frankly the stress of not knowing if we’ll be able to continue each week due to such a lame concept as money. As pretentious as it may seem(very?), we consider what we’re doing here with Lasers on the Ride as bringing a little bit of art to the relatively new medium of podcasts. We haven’t found anyone else doing what we’re doing and we really just want to be able to keep providing, whatever it is we’re doing, to the world.

Since we have no intention of withholding Lasers on the Ride from non-paying listeners, we’ve provided a bunch of rewards for your patronage. Everything from HQ versions of the episodes to your very own personalized and personal episode. We feel the biggest reward though is the security you’ll feel knowing Lasers on the Ride will live another week. Once a week. Sometimes maybe twice a week. Four to six episodes a month.

This is just the courtesy option, let's start by just being friends, you know? How about you get up on instagram and go follow us and in turn we'll follow you. After that we'll like each other's pictures and comment when we can think of something funny and you know, just generally get too involved in each other's lives.

- A classic instagram follow back

- HQ episodes


Our current server downgrades every episode of Lasers on the Ride to 128 kbps, at this level you get access to each episode in crisp 320 kbps. That sh*t is crispy. Like NPR without the New England.

- HQ episodes

- Two extra half-episodes a month 


You get all that other stuff, PLUS, twice a month you'll receive an exclusive BONUS episode not available to our unpaid feed. So what if it's half the length - it'll be twice as salacious. Lies, deceit, revenge - it'll have it all.

- A secret shout out! 


Here's the golden ticket. For $2.50 an episode you'll receive a secret shout-out in season 2 of Lasers on the Ride. This means that at some point between episode 1 and episode 50 of season 2, we will drop your name in mid-conversation. It could be while Mike rants about how Mussolini is overrated or maybe it'll happen while Jay gets emotional describing feelings he doesn't understand. Either way, our promise to you is when we say your name, it will be contextually relevant.

This is for either the die-hards or just regular rich folk. You get all that other sh*t plus your very own personalized and personal episode. An episode where you can make the playlist we listen to, choose the soundscapes we converse over, and even provide us with some topics or questions you'd like to hear us talk about. And when it's all done, you have your own unique episode of Lasers on the Ride which you can keep to yourself or share with the world.

When we reach $100 an episode, we'll almost be halfway to keeping the lights on!
