The unsung hero of the biscuit tin. Wholesome, gently crunchy, and undeniably dunkable.

Thanks for supporting this independent podcast. We love you, and the horse you rode in on! You'll also get access to the Patron-only feed, where we'll be hanging out.

Chocolate Hobnob

per month
A project-studio stalwart, with its initial choccy rush and long chewy finish. Needs expert handling to avoid a crumb explosion, though.

Reward: Monthly bonus audio outtakes.

Jaffa Cake

Soft, sweet, and orangey, but alarmingly addictive. To put it another way, why do you never seen a half-eaten packet in the cupboard?

Rewards: Additional Q&A/News items, plus monthly bonus audio outtakes. 



About Mike & Jon

Support our free monthly Project Studio Tea Break podcast by buying us biscuits (both literally and figuratively) here on Patreon!

Every month we take a more-or-less well-earned tea break to survey the month's project-studio matters in, um, our own special way. Regular features include:

  • The News Shakedown: We chew over our favourite news stories of the month. With a certain amount of sniggering.
  • Facepalm Of The Month: Never any shortage of epic fails round these parts. (Will we ever learn?)
  • Q&A: We lay to rest the real questions that keep studio users up at night. Which mic's best for hand-to-hand combat? How can a keyboard player throw rock shapes? What does this button do?
  • What's Your Jam?: We ride the caffeine and sugar high to wax lyrical about a technical or musical infatuation.

Special Treats For Patrons!

For all you stupendously fluffy individuals who help us make this new independent podcast a reality, we'll be posting exclusive extra goodies on the Patron's Feed, including highlight/blooper reels, behind-the-scenes images, additional news/Q&A items, and our unsurpassable bespoke Toast Foley. You can also suggest news items and questions you'd like us to cover, and even get a shout-out on the show itself.

Jon Whitten is a composer for dance and theatre who's taken to podcasting like a duck to warfare. He's collaborated with alt-j, Sam Lee, Charles Castronovo, and performed on the Glastonbury Acoustic Stage, Later... with Jules Holland, and Tiny Desk. He even once saw Paul Simon topless. He prefers teas with unpronounceable names and rich histories he can waffle on about in company: Roibos, Mate, Tieguanyin, you get the idea...
