    At this tier you can listen to the podcast ad-free - that's pretty cool! Until I have a lot of ads, this tier will also get to see some behind the scenes stuff.

    Demons

    $10
    per month
    All Demons get an ad-free version of the podcast plus who knows what exclusive behind-the-scenes material I come up with! Could be album-related, band-related, podcast-related, or cross stitch-related, but it will be random, rest assured.
    You'll also get to listen in on a monthly Meandering Conversation, where I chat up a friend, musician, or activist about their politics or their art. I hope to highlight social justice organizations doing the work, giving us all a chance to learn from, participate in, or donate to the movement. We'll see how the conversation goes, but we'll get deep every time. You can ask questions in the chat box and we'll answer them in real time.

    About Shawna Potter

    I miss touring. I miss connecting with people. I miss sharing my rage with an audience of people who get it (or want to). How can we capture that solidarity safely? Join me on a deep dive into the politics of Wonderful Hell, the upcoming War On Women album. On "But Her Lyrics..." I'll chat with bandmates, share stories and inspirations, and interview experts on the topics at hand. I want to put the issues into context for everyone, and leave you with the feeling that we can make things better.

    "But Her Lyrics..." began airing December 9, 2020 as a bi-monthly pod, around 60 minutes each (but help me hit one of my goals and I can ramp up the content). It will stream free with ads on the most common sites, but I need your help to make the best podcast possible. With your continued support and input, I can go back into our catalogue. If you help me meet my biggest goal, I can extend the reach and interview other women/trans/non-binary/gender non-conforming lyricists in-depth about their writing process, song meanings, and politics. I'm looking forward to this new adventure and can't wait to see what conversations await us!

    Thanks to all my early patrons - your advance support helped me hit the ground running! I am forever grateful.

    Goals
