About The System is Down

The System is Down is the podcast for all discussions uncomfortable, namely Conspiracies, Politics, and Religion, but a lot of you who listen to the show just don't seem uncomfortable enough. To remedy that, I give you The Downers Club.

By joining The Downers Club, in addition to getting weekly bonus episodes, videos, news, merch, and many more perks to come, you will also be an investor in and a part of the show, helping me grow this thing into a bigger and better more exciting listening and viewing experience.

Promotion isn't free, online hosting isn't free, websites aren't free, gear isn't free, time isn't free. This podcast is something that I absolutely love to create and give to you at no charge, but I want to continue to make this show more fun and less comfortable than you could ever imagine. If you'd like to be a part of making that happen, or if you just want some more weird stuff, sign up for The Downers Club today.

Thanks!

-Dan

I have priorities. Once everything else is covered to give you, the listener the most optimal show experience, whatever extra money I have left will feed my children.
Obviously, this is a joke, but honestly, if the show were ever to get to a point where it could subsidies any of my regular income, I will be able to free myself up a bit to continue expanding the show, giving your more episodes per week, finding bigger and better guests, and so forth.
Pipe dream?... Maybe... It's up to you.
