Hey folks,

First we'd like to thank you for listening to the show and taking the time to stop by our Patreon. The Sense & Theory Podcast has been a blast to make so far and we hope you folks are enjoying listening to it as much as we are putting it together. We started this show because we felt like all the extremism, hyperbole, and team sports in political and social discussions these days are drowning out reasonable voices. Social media, the news, pop culture; everywhere you look it seems the landscape is rife with ideological battlegrounds and partisan death battles over everything from healthcare to kids cartoons. Each side breathlessly portraying their opponents as soulless monsters bent on the destruction of life as we know it. Meanwhile anyone who does not subscribe to one of these apocalyptic views of the world is denounced as ill informed, wishy-washy, snowflake, baby-murdering, neo-nazi, communist cucks.

We wanted to reject that. We wanted to create a place where its okay to disagree with someone. A place where you can passionately argue your position, maybe have your own mind changed, yet never feel an ounce of shame over it or lose a bit of respect for the other side. We wanted to normalize looking at all sides critically, talking out pros and cons and building a consensus rather than blindly cheering for this robot over that one based on the D or R next to their name. We're not here to tell you what to think, we're here to figure it out alongside you. We want to make a show that's as much about our listeners and their journey through all this as it is our own.

With those lofty ambitions in our sights we promise here and now that The Sense & Theory Podcast will always be free download. (Cue explosions, waving flags, screeching eagles and dudes on motorcycles doing gnarly tricks)... BUT (knew it was coming didn't ya?)... We're still two average guys with day jobs and families. To make this show everything it could be we need your help. Right now we need an audio interface to facilitate guests, windscreens for the mics to eliminate those annoying pops and clicks, not to mention the industrial sized bottles of aloe for all the sick burns Beanzo lays on us every week.  Going forward we have big plans for guest appearances, bonus content, special episodes, ways to involve our listeners and even super secret plans for global domination that we won't even talk about right now. None of those things will be possible without your support. We're already burning our weekends up to produce the podcast and nights after work on planning and research (don't even get me started on Beanzo's riders.)

We hope you believe in us enough to give. Even if you just remain a listener, we understand and appreciate the hell out of you. We hope you continue to find the time to enjoy our show. Those of you who can contribute monetarily however have our sincerest gratitude. Times are tough and there's a lot of people out there asking for your hard earned dollar. Blessing the show with your support both humbles us and emboldens us to double down on creating the best show we can. 

Thank You,

Sense & Theory  (..and even Beanzo up there in his ivory tower.)


Tiers
Theoretical Supporter
$1 or more per month

Did you know Theory unclogs toilets for a living? Look at the pain in those eyes. By donating a dollar a month you've theoretically inched him closer to setting aside the plunger so he can start doing some clogging of his own... To the airwaves... not to the...  You know what? Just thank you.


Theoretical Supporters get:

  • Your name goes on the Wall of Honor at senseandtheorypodcast.com
  • Or you can remain anonymous
Sensible Supporter
$2 or more per month

A true friend of the show has the spirit of support and the deep pockets to back it up! Two dollars is a quite sensible donation and also shows those lowly Theoretical Supporters that you possess twice the means! Accordingly, we will love you twice as much!


Sensible Supporters get:

  • The Reward Above
  • A shout out from Sense and Theory on an episode of the show
  • (Or you can remain anonymous twice)

 

Beanzo's Buddies
$5 or more per month

With the class and poise of rubber-neckers gawking at a car wreck you jackals support us simply to hear more of Beanzo's brutal take downs. That said we still appreciate you(r money).


Beanzo's Buddies will get:

  •  The rewards above
  • Access to bonus mini sodes
  • A special Beanzo shout out on the show
Tall Bike Enthusiast
$10 or more per month

The fellas don't really know what would drive someone to pledge ten dollars a month when there are no additional rewards at this tier currently. But the fellas don't really know what possesses someone to ride a bike you cant stop without getting off either. Point is, as sure as there are legions of folks living "Dat Tall Bike Lyfe" you may be out there as well. You'll of course recieve all the above rewards and we'll see what we can do to add rewards in the future, but for now you can keep making right turns with our deepest appreciation and gratitude.


Tall Bike Enthusiasts will get:

  • All the above rewards


Goals
27% complete
While the slap dash patchwork of audio interfaces and recording software we used to record music on a decade ago has moxie, we'd love to not cross our fingers everytime Beanzo hits save or even have the ability to add a fourth mic. At $100 a month we'll start making a serious overhaul to our audio equipment and be able to tackle some of the technical challenges that prevent us from scheduling out of town guests.
