About This Ends at Prom

Greetings & Salutations, and welcome to the official Patreon page for the This Ends at Prom podcast!

We're a show where cisgender film theorist and teen movie apologist BJ Colangelo introduces her transgender wife Harmony Colangelo to a seminal film she missed out on, because she grew up socialized as a teen boy. 

Birthed out of a written column on the same topic that was cancelled due to COVID-19 destroying the budgets of just about every entertainment publications, we pivoted to a podcast because we believed in the idea, and so many incredible supporters pushed us to making the show.

This Ends at Prom drops a free episode every Thursday through Pod People Productions and wherever else you get your podcasts, but as discussions based on episodes grew and fans clamored for more content, we finally decided to join the wonderful world Patreon. We love This Ends at Prom, and we want to give back to those that love the show as much as we do. Subscribing to one of our Patreon tiers will give you access to exclusive bonus content that you'll get nowhere else.

Okay, so you're probably asking what are we going to do with the money. Every dollar earned off this Patreon will go directly back into the show in the following ways:

  • Time: Harmony and BJ both work full time in addition to their freelance writing commitments, and podcasting takes a LOT longer than most people would assume. 
    • In addition to actually watching the movie, the wives have to record (sometimes more than once depending on whether or not our neighbors are acting a hot mess in the background).
    • Harmony mixes, masters, and edits every episode herself.
    • BJ spends an obscene amount of time researching each film.
    • The wives dedicate time to promoting the episode everywhere they can.
  • Monthly Fees: In order to have guests on the show during a pandemic, we have to use software subscriptions to properly record. Additionally, hosting fees are absolutely a thing and producer Brennan deserves some coin for helping keep the show alive. 
  • Equipment: One of the biggest compliments we've ever received is that for a new show, we sound polished and professional. Outside of Harmony's distaste for poor audio quality, we also invested in some high-quality recording equipment. Eventually though, upgrades will need to be made, and this helps offset us diving back into our own pockets.
  • Additional Content: We want to expand the show as much as possible, bring on more guests, make merch, offer audio commentaries, make video blogs, and perhaps when the world is out of this hellscape, start doing live shows! The more people that support on Patreon, the more content we are able to produce for y'all!
The show is one of the greatest lights in our lives, as are our listeners that make this possible. We want to give back to y'all as much as possible, and this is one of the best ways for us to do just that.

xoxo,
The Wives Colangelo

Goals
$1,000 - reached! per month


Teen girl movies aren't the only aspect of culture that greatly impacts the way the world views and treats entertainment targeting non-men, and we're going to talk about it. 

If we reach $1,000 per month, we will begin releasing monthly episodes discussing the albums, performers, singles, and moments of pop music that shaped the world. We're not just talking Boy Bands--we're talking Beatlemania, riot grrl, queer baiting, women in rock, and everything else under the sun. Each episode will be made available for all Patreon supporters regardless of tier and we will open up a monthly poll for listeners to pick the topics we tackle!

(For the record--we will 100% be talking about the complicated importance of t.A.T.u. for the first month)
