Audio Thank You
Any amount you can give helps, and we really appreciate this! We’ll read a list of donor names during a podcast episode to show our gratitude. But don’t go giving us any fake names to read. We’ll know.

Nerdologues Digital Museum
At this level, you’ll get access to a bunch of cool stuff that not everyone will see. Think of it as our version of the Disney Vault, except not torturous to children. The Digital Museum includes Your Stories podcasts prior to the last 12 months of shows, scripts from our comedy shows, a PDF of Fisticuffs! (our card game), and other oddities and exclusives. You’ll also get early access to podcast streams before we release them! Prior reward level also included.

Playtesting Vanguard
Remember how we said we make games? You can help us with that! At this level, you’ll be the VERY FIRST people outside our immediate group we contact to help develop and test new games! You’ll lay your eyes on future Nerdologues projects before pretty much anyone else, and your feedback will be invaluable in helping to shape them. That means that if people hate our next game, it’s on y’all. Prior reward levels also included.

Annual Gift Box
Folks, we really like you. At this level, we’re going to show it by shipping you a customized gift box full of Nerdologues goodies every December! We’ll throw in games, tee-shirts, and other odds and ends that not just anyone will have! Make your friends super jealous with all your cool swag. What? Of course your friends have heard of us. Prior reward levels also included.

The Birthday Song Club 
At this level, Dwight, Claire, Eric, and Jim (the Your Stories musicians) will learn a song of your choosing once a year for your birthday! Anything is fair game, even Die Antwoord (maybe). They’ll record your song just for you! If we get 12 people to pledge at this level, we’ll make a free album of birthday covers available in the Digital Museum. Prior reward levels also included.

Nerdologues Hangout 
Us Nerds can talk forever about lots of stuff -- comedy writing, podcast producing, game design, improv, whatever. At this level, we’ll talk to you about whatever you want! Want a storytelling workshop? Want help with a game? We can make that happen! We can also just whisper sweet nothings to you/your friends/your pets. This pledge gets you an initial hour-long consultation plus personalized follow-ups as discussed. Prior reward levels also included.
Goals
$68 of $25,000 per month
At this level, everyone in the Nerdologues can essentially make a living off the group. To commemorate that, we’ll write a brand new show for you every month and livestream it to our backers in addition to all the regular cool stuff we do all the time. The shows are guaranteed to have at least 20% more comedy than your uncle at Thanksgiving.
