Dear Pamphleteers, 

Since our first season in 2016, The Pamphlet Podcast, it has been our mission unabiding mission to uncover the hidden histories of Unitarian Universalism and share them with the world through the medium of the podcast. 

We brought you stories of pirates, communist, and the mystery of the flaming chalice. 

When we put the podcast out there, we were excited to connect with the tens (maybe dozens, of UU history nerds out there). When our episodes were consistently being downloaded by over a thousand people, we were floored. In our first season, we broke the 14,000 download mark (WHAT!).

So we are ready to go for our second season (I know finally, it took us some time but we are here okay) and we want to kick it up a notch.... maybe make it so it doesn't sound like we are recording our episodes across the country from each other while hiding under a blanket.

But to get to that next level we need your help...

By becoming part of our Patreon family and pledging to support us with a couple dollars per episode, you will not only allow us to take this next step by helping to cover our costs, but you will become part of our community and help us steer the direction of the show. 

Sounds awesome right. Sounds like something you want to be part of right? Glad to hear it. 

Okay, I know some of you are thinking: "Hold up why do you need money for all of this?" and it's a good question.

Right now each episode of the show cost around $120 to produce web hosting, transcripts, Facebook ads, etc. Beyond the financial costs, right now most of the time we are doing all the editing and technical stuff ourselves and guess what: we are Ministers, not audio gurus. Each episode can take upwards of 10 hours to complete start to finish. That's like a quarter-time job and we already have full-time ones!

Our goal is to be able to build a team to do all the technical parts of the podcast so that we can focus on what we are good at which is telling stories about UU history. We think we can do that for just around $350 an episode. Make sense? 

So that's our story. 

We are really excited to be n this journey with you and hope to continue for years to come. 

Many thanks for being part of our community, 

Susan & Sean
