Number 6 - Heartfelt Gratitude

per month
Number 6 is, appropriately enough, the 6th best tier and it's the one that will earn you our heartfelt gratitude! NEW: It will also allow you to listen to the making of the combined show list, for those episodes where The Countdown goes up against another podcast and their shared list. In other words, you'll get what is effectively an extra episode of the regular show approximately monthly for JUST ONE BUCK!

Number 5 - Early Access

per month
Number 5 is the tier where you'll get early access to each new Episode before it officially drops on Tuesday 5pm AWST. The moment it is edited and published, it will be uploaded here FIRST!

You'll also receive our heartfelt gratitude, of course!

Number 4 - Countdown Trivia Game

per month
Number 4 is where  you get access to all Episodes of The Countdown Trivia Game. You'll also be eligible to join future iterations of the Trivia Game and compete against your fellow amazing Patrons for a spot on the show OR a huge Countdown merch pack. (Plus if you're so inclined to scroll back through all the posts in this feed you'll have exclusive access to the first 39 Eps of the show that are available NOWHERE else in the world.)

And of course you'll also receive all the rewards from the lower tiers! 



About The Countdown

Let's start with a set of HUGE thanks! Thanks for listening to The Countdown. Thanks for giving two massive film buffs and best friends a shot. Thanks for becoming a fan! (Because why else would you even consider visiting here?) And thanks for coming as far as checking out our Patreon page. It means the world to us that you would even think about donating some of your hard earned cash to not only keep the show going, but also growing!

Because that's exactly what we're aiming for here. We're going to keep creating the same weekly show for everyone to enjoy. But we want to improve the sound quality with better equipment, and as our back catalogue grows, we want to be able to keep all our episodes available to new listeners that come to the show. That means more server space. We also want to record more content and reach more and more sets of ears. And in this day and age all of that comes with a financial cost.

SO .. we're offering a number of incentives to say thank you for your contribution. And we're very open to hearing YOUR ideas about what you'd like see here which you think others might also like.

Will the show end if you opt not to become a patron? Ahh, no. We love doing it too much for that to be something we'd ever threaten. So this is not about guilting or begging you as you click through the page. We're not those kind of guys. (Well, Wayne might be; Paul is a stand up bloke ... who may or may not be responsible for writing what you're reading now.) Instead, this is about seeing what kind of an "empire" (with a very small 'e') we can build and how much better the show might become.

And if you do choose to become a patron, know you have the undying gratitude of two Aussie mates who no-one thought would make it to Episode 10 with their movie podcast, let alone be able to invest back into the show with the help of some seriously cool folks. Help us show those naysayers. *shakes fist at said nasysayers* :P

Lofty though it may be, at this level, we'll be able to dedicate far more time to the show which means a) more content on a regular basis and b) paying for the babysitting Paul's daughter will need if we're going to do this!
