WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL!
We'll circumvent the nasty problem of human mortality by adding your name to our website's Supporter Starfield. Plus you'll have the rosy-cheeked glow of knowing that whenever you have to listen to us make terrible decisions....it's partially your fault.

About The Junket Podcast

Greetings, listener! The Junket Podcast is a UK-based audio adventure production currently telling the story of the Maelstrom Galaxy. Join us biweekly as our cast uses Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition to improvise their way through the end of the universe in a 23rd century setting where magic, myths and machines collide to form a vibrant space opera rich with alien megacities, fishlike spaceships, gods and blaster cannons.

You can talk to us on social at Twitter and Instagram - we're always happy to take questions or just talk, and sometimes we share snippets and information from behind the scenes including art, music and outtakes.

-------------------

A word from our founder

My name is Paige Selby-Evans, and I'm the show's Game Master, writer, composer, co-editor and artist. I wouldn't be able to make Junket a real thing you can listen to with your real human ears without the support of my team: that team being my wife Leonie and our good friends Shona, Duncan, Ell and Jess.

As UK natives, we all grew up under Section 28: a vile piece of law that made it illegal for schools and teachers to talk about anything even remotely linked to queerness. I blame Section 28 for being why it took me meeting my future wife to realise my own identity, and for a lot of other things besides. But that's for another time.

I wanted to marry Leonie before it was even legal. I grew up on books where people like me didn't exist, and on TV and film where we died pointlessly to score tears with straight audiences. My point, lateral though it may be, is that stories have power, and storytellers have responsibility - though often it feels like most just squander it.

With Junket, our core aim is to tell queer and creative stories set in queer and creative worlds, and while we're putting as much effort as we can currently spare into doing that, we'd love to do more.

But doing more things means more money, and that's where you come in!
Your donations will enable us to: 
  • pay off our initial investment in equipment and software
  • hire sensitivity consultants who can work with us on including and drawing from cultures other than our own
  • compensate us and our players for the time we invest in the show
  • start producing The Press Junket, a second podcast where we answer your questions and chat about our latest hijinks
  • pay for additional equipment and software to help improve the show's audio and production quality
  • lessen our dependence on our full time jobs, allowing us to put more time and energy into the show

Thanks for reading!
- Paige, Leonie, Jess, Shona, Elliot & Duncan

Junket is a labour of love (and personal expense), so even this many patrons would go a long way to helping us recoup our costs. 

BONUS EPISODE: PIRATE AU
Shiver me timbers! As a special thank you for reaching this point, we will record and release a special bonus episode only available to our patrons.
