Welcome to the Spirited Discourse Podcast Patreon. Spirited Discourse is a podcast hosted by writers Devin Poore and Rajan Khanna where creative people get together to talk over drinks. The idea is to recreate the kind of fun and interesting conversations that writers and other creators have at the bar at conventions or other gatherings. Only we record the conversations. Each episode features a special guest and a selected drink or two and we let the conversation go where it will. The podcast is available on iTunes, Soundcloud and most podcast platforms. 

Season 1 of the podcast featured writers Grady Hendrix, Matthew Kressel, and David Mack as well as editor Ellen Datlow and fellow geeks Rachel Parker and Joey Ammons. We are currently on season 2 of the podcast which will include guests like writers N.K. Jemisin, Theresa Delucci, and Mercurio D. Rivera and editor Scott Andrews of Beneath Ceaseless Skies. 

While we produce the podcast because we want to, there are costs associated with it such as hosting and the time and effort that goes into recording and editing it. Any help with these costs goes toward helping us keep the podcast going, and helps us justify the time it takes in our otherwise busy lives. 

But this isn't all about taking. We often end up with more material than we can easily put into the podcast, and until now there hasn't been a decent place to put it. Our patrons will be able to access and download outtakes from our podcasts going back to season 1 and continuing with our current season. We also intend to involve our Patrons in future episodes, taking suggestions for drinks, guests, and even questions. 

We know we're still just starting out, but we would like to see the podcast get better reach, both in terms of guests and the audience and we'd like to branch out from publishing and into a wide range of creative pursuits including music, theater, film, and more. We hope you'll take that journey with us.
