About The Real Question with Vanessa and Casper

Vanessa and Casper have recorded a podcast episode together every week for the last 5 years. What are they going to do, just stop? Of course not. They’re going to (hopefully!) start a new podcast – The Real Question. This new podcast is a space for Vanessa and Casper to bring their big existential questions and concerns about the world.

Every episode, one of them will bring a problem, and the other will bring some solutions. Not real solutions of course; big existential questions and concerns don’t have any real solutions. But they’ll bring something that might help: a piece of literature, a philosophical idea, a song, a meme. Through sacred reading together, they’ll study, discuss, process, and console.We thought: Why stop at Harry Potter when we could be sacred reading Thomas Aquinas, Mamma Mia 2! and Call Me By Your Name?

This podcast will be bi-weekly, launching March 1st, 2021 and we are promising to do at least four episodes. However, in order to make this show a long-term reality, we need your help!

Unfortunately none of us are at a point in our lives where we can work for free. But if we raise $4000/month before we launch on March 1st, we would feel confident enough to start full production on this podcast. This will pay fair hourly rates for everyone working on the podcast, web-hosting, music, design, etc. If we don’t raise that money, unfortunately we can’t make it!

For each of the below tiers there are two sets of perks. One set is what you will get, “Before the podcast launches” -- so these will be perks in December, January and February. Once the podcast launches in March, you get a whole new set of perks!
Goals
$2,571.29 of $4,000 per month
If we reach $4000 per month before March 1, 2021, we can afford to keep making the podcast past our pilot season of 4 episodes!
