Welcome to the Saturday Night Live afterparty—a Peabody Award-coveting podcast review of SNL, featuring intimate, probing, aggressive—yet tender—conversations with fresh, young, supple voices from across the comedy landscape.

We're a self-funded, independently produced podcast, and resource for die-hard SNL fans around the world.

Our mission is simple: create a fun, engaging and informative show that SNL fans—old and new—can turn to for news and insights about Saturday Night Live, as well as a full review of each new episode.

We provide a well-rounded discussion of the show, its history and cultural relevance, as well as highlight the stunning craft and hard work that gets the show to-air each week.

Additionally, we seek to tell the stories of SNL alumni, writers, cast and crew through exclusive one-on-one interviews.

We're building a roster of SNL experts—including journalists, writers, radio personalities and comedians—to participate in the cast.

In the end, we want to be an invaluable asset to the SNL fan community.

However, it takes a lot of time and money to produce a top-notch podcast. If our listeners are enjoying the show, we hope they will consider becoming patrons.

Listener support is what will ensure that we can continue to produce the show for future seasons.

We are so thankful to those of our listeners who've already chosen to offer their support.

You're awesome! Thanks for supporting our cast.


As a patron, you will get access to our patron-only feed which is the first place we'll announce any show related news, including: upcoming interviews, guest participation, special casts and other bonus releases.


You'll also get priority consideration for any topics, feedback, criticism or news that you want us to discuss on the podcast.

You'll receive early access to an ad-free "rough cut" of every vintage SNL episode review, as well as all interviews and bonus episodes that we release—7 or more per year!


You will get roughly 20 extra minutes of discussion that doesn't make it into the final episodes. You'll hear additional news and feedback topics, as well as the more controversial and uninformed opinions that get chopped out of the final cast to make us sound way smarter than we actually are. 


And you will also get all previous rewards.

You'll receive early access to an ad-free "rough cut" of each new SNL episode review immediately after we record—a full 2-days before the final cast typically drops!

Well, you paid for it... you might as well join us!


We'll invite you on to participate in a full cast. We can either review an episode of your choosing or discuss any SNL related topic that you want.


Alternatively, if you don't want to come on the cast, we'd be happy to jump on a video chat with you to talk SNL or any topic that you want.


And you will also get all previous rewards.

Goals
$64 of $500 per month
Producing a hand-crafted, independent podcast is an incredibly time consuming and expensive endeavour. Our out-of-pocket expenses for the cast are roughly $500 per month and that's not including any amount for our time.

If your support can help ensure that the cast is—at the very least—not losing money month-over-month, then we'll be able to keep it going well into the future.

This is our first critical goal: break even or bust!

If you're enjoying the show and want us to stick around for future seasons of SNL, then please consider becoming a patron.
