This is THRASH IT OUT, a show where Antony Johnston and Brian LeTendre listen to a heavy metal album, and then argue about it.

(Subscribe in iTunes here — or go to the website here)

(Oh, and we're also on Facebook)

Antony and Brian have both been metalheads since they were kids, but they come at it from very different directions; Antony's a Motörhead/Sabbath/Slipknot kind of guy, while Brian is on the Megadeth/Exodus/Queensrÿche side of things.

And that's what makes THRASH IT OUT great; we expose one another (and our listeners!) to our different tastes and favourite bands, sometimes for the very first time, and then discuss what we think of the music. Because as any headbanger knows, arguing about metal is half the fun of being a fan :D

If you're wondering where you might have seen/heard us before; Antony writes graphic novels and books, and is best known as the creator of Atomic Blonde. Meanwhile, Brian is a novelist and journalist, and the host of Power Chords and Co-Op Critics.

So why Patreon?

Because we like being independent. In the spirit of the underground, we believe being supported by fans, rather than sponsors and advertisers, allows us to make a better show for those fans. We're not even on a podcast network.

THRASH IT OUT is released in "Volumes" of 10-12 podcast episodes, plus some bonus eps (see below). ALL EPISODES ARE FREE TO EVERYONE — and it's your support that helps us keep it that way.

The "Volume model" is why we ask you to pledge per episode, rather than per month; so that you're only charged when we actually release an episode.



OUR MINIMUM PLEDGE IS JUST $1.
We were both penniless young metalheads once, and we don't want to exclude the kind of fans we used to be ourselves...! So if all you can afford is $1, that's cool.

BUT YOU CAN PLEDGE MORE IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT.
The $1 is only a minimum. You can actually pledge as much as you want! So if you love the show and want to help support us, go ahead and pledge $2, $5, $10, whatever. Every dollar helps us make THRASH IT OUT, and stay independent.

ALL PATRONS GET TO INFLUENCE THE SHOW.
Patrons get three 'patron perks':

First, every so often we'll select a patron at random and invite them onto a "Backstage Pass" show, where they get to call in and tell us all about their favourite album, and why it's special to them.

Next, every Volume we do a special "Listener Choice" episode where patrons get to nominate an album for us to discuss, and we select a winner at random.

Finally, we also do an "Encore" bonus episode where patrons can nominate a band we've already featured on the show, and get us to talk about a different album from that band.

EVERYONE CAN HEAR THESE EPISODES, BUT ONLY PATRONS GET TO TAKE PART.

(NOTE: We organise all these through Patreon itself, to ensure they're exclusive to patrons. so MAKE SURE YOUR EMAIL IS VALID AND SIGNED UP FOR ALERTS, or you might miss out.)

Thanks — and keep thrashing!  \m/  \m/

We wanna see those hands! Let me see those hands, motherfuckers!

This is our only pledge level, because we want to keep things simple, and not exclude fans who don't have much money. 

Remember, YOU CAN ALWAYS PLEDGE MORE IF YOU WANT. That's why the title says "$1 or more"! And if you do, that's totally awesome. Anyone pledging more than $1 is going the extra mile to help keep the show on the air, and we are really grateful. But even if $1 is all you can afford, you still get the Patron Perks.

So if you pledge $1? That's awesome, go for it. And if you can pledge more than $1? That's even more awesome!

THRASH IT OUT is growing into a real metalhead community, and with your support, we can make it thrive!

Hey, a podcaster can dream, right? In the unlikely event that we ever actually reach this level of funding, we'll drop the "Volumes" schedule and instead just do an episode every week, forever!*

*Hiatus may be necessary in the event of host death and/or the destruction of civilisation. But you never know.
