Hello! Welcome to POET IN BANGKOK! Or at least our Patreon page!

In every episode of our podcast, we speak with artists living and working in Bangkok. We hear their stories, and try to piece together a larger narrative about making art and self-expression despite the Martian invasion. 

What's that? Oh yes: there’s a twist! While our exploration of the arts in Thailand is non-fictional, the podcast is set against a fictional backdrop. That's right. In the world of POET IN BANGKOK, humans have traveled to Mars: a planet that we’ve been terraforming since the early 1990s! We know! Crazy! Harbinger 1, the first manned mission to Mars has lost contact with Earth, and the second mission landed in early 2016 -- and much drama ensued! 

So, as our podcast unfolds into its second season listeners will hear lively conversations about art and censorship in Bangkok (and the USA...), and get carried deeper into a serialized story about what’s happening on Mars and how it impacts us here on Earth!

But if you're reading this you probably know all that already--and have been listening to us on Soundcloud, iTunes, or Stitcher. Or reading our musings on Bangkok, art, and Mars on our website. Thanks for listening--you're awesome! 

POET IN BANGKOK is a labor of love by two independent artists. If you like what we're up to, and would enjoy hearing more of our project (like in a second season!), we'd love your support! A few bucks an episode would mean the world to us! So thanks! 

If you're unfamiliar with Patreon, here's how it works. Basically it's a way to directly support artists by pledging a certain amount for each piece of art they create. For example, you might decide to pledge $3 for each episode of the podcast. So each time we create an episode of POET IN BANGKOK, $3 is charged to your credit card. (You can also set up a maximum donation amount too, if you like). For each pledge level, there are different rewards as a way of saying thanks!

Thanks for any support you can provide--and no worries if you can't! We appreciate you listening!

If you have any questions, please drop us a note.
