About Shane Mauss

Hey Friends!
Welcome to my patreon page!

When I stopped touring because of Covid, it opened my eyes to creating more digital content, using social media more, and creating a community here on Patreon.

In a year we added Discord which is a fun troll free social platform that I like because it is people that found me through various ways and tend to like learning, mindfulness, comedy, art, and other weird fun.  It has separate channels to make it is to participating in the topics you like and avoid what you aren't interested in.

In 2021 we've been doing virtual meet ups weekly.  I post and basically select the first 8 commenters each week to play boardgames or do a "Group Overshare" where we skip awkward small talk and just share our thoughts on life and how things are going.  I'm adding more things like this constantly.

I also drop bonus content I wouldn't put anywhere else like the only ever recorded show from my "A Good Trip" Tour.  I'm working on doing things a bit more consistently as well as more support comes in to not only give me more bandwidth, but get my pre-Covid team working again to make sure all the behind the scenes stuff for Here We Are and other projects is going on.

I absolutely love Patreon and love that people can both join a community and the things they like.  I'm done doing ad reads on Here We Are and peddling things no one needs.  Now you can support me and the show directly and get such a better product and so much more for it.

Thanks so much!

81% complete
90% of my income came from live touring but that ended with the rise of Covid-19.

The silver lining here is that I’ve started creating more podcast content than ever before.

The downside is that I now don't have touring income to pay for making my podcast.

This goal will cover all of the editing expenses of getting 'Here We Are' out each week as well as all the new video highlights called 'Bite Size Science' which are really helping build the audience.

This is the minimum needed for these podcasts to exist.  This is just for the editing and doesn't cover the 40+ hrs per week that myself and my team put into the booking, research, recording, and promoting of the podcasts.
