We'll also periodically seek your requests for topics on our Black Ops and Fun Size Episodes, and sometimes, even let you vote on the topic of a Single Serving Selection or full Panel episode!
Plus, you'll get occasional first looks at upcoming episode topics before anyone else!
We like to pitch our show as "the McLaughlin Group for nerds!"
In the six years since we started the show, we've dissected topics like Superman, Steven Spielberg, Akira, George Lucas, Zombies, Twin Peaks, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hiyao Miyazaki, James Bond, Dungeons & Dragons, Watchmen, and popular culture that is "so bad they're good."
Our panels aren't made up of a monotone wall of super-fans. Each episode, we try to include at least one non-fan or an anti-fan or an outside voice to keep things interesting.
We also produce the bimonthly Podcasta la Vista, Baby! spin-off podcast, a tribute to the cinematic works of thespian and statesman Arnold Schwarzenegger. We'll be joined by a friend to talk about each of his movies and revel in the catch phrases, the explosions and, yes... the absurd macho bullshit.
With Radio vs. the Martians!, we aim to create a show that is humorous and thought provoking, but accessible to people who've never looked at the topic before.
We would like to produce this show professionally, but we know that doing this is a long ways off.
Where your money goes:
When you support our program monthly, you will be helping to pay for our show's web hosting of both our show sites and the audio files themselves. We use this money to pay the artists and musicians, like Rob Kelly, who designed the artwork that we use for the sites' logos and guest bio images, and James Whetzel, who composed the original theme music for our shows.
Our studio - including our mixing board, high quality microphones, table and laptop we record the show on were paid for entirely with money raised by our listeners.
We also spend a great portion of our income advertising on other podcasts to grow our listenership. We also use our listener-sponsored funds to pay for periodic convention appearances, and to host "Captain Picard Day," our annual holiday celebration with friends, guests and fans.
At this time, we do not pay ourselves from the money we raise from Patreon, but it is our hope to eventually generate enough support that we can do this show professionally and support ourselves financially.
However, we do pay our guests for their appearances on our show. Our show is possible because of their generosity and labor, and we try to pay them generously for it.
Your support will help us get our show in more ears and produce more material. This is a labor of love and we appreciate your support!
That means more content for all of our patrons!
