About Trash & Treasures

Hello, gang! Welcome to the home of Trash & Treasures and our sub-podcast, Drunk Book Club.
We've been creating independent three-person discussions of the weird and wonderful in film since September 2016, and taking you on drunken dives into the worst of literature for over 2 years.
We've always paid our own equipment and hosting costs, and do our editing ourselves; we've faithfully posted every 2 weeks, and were a day late only once due to our editor being ill.
Your contribution would help us to improve quality, pay for occasional guests, and potentially make time for additional content--because time is money, and the more we make here, the less hours we have to spend working our Dreaded Day Jobs to put food on the table.

If you're new to our work, here's a rundown of our podcasts and hosts:

Trash & Treasures
"We watch movies others throw away!" Dorothy, Vrai, Shawn, and occasional guest hosts discuss strange films, digging into what makes them work and what doesn't--often with a focus on queer themes. Though we're all horror fans, we cover a wide genre range including 90s stoner films, children's and adult's animated features, psychedelia, musicals, and Ill-Advised Remakes.
We also have some recurrent special features. Every June we switch from biweekly to weekly content, posting 4 episodes on queer-focused films in celebration of Pride month; in late December we do double features of oddly connected holiday films; and Valentine's Day is, of course, time for Bad Hentai.

Drunk Book Club
"We read books you've probably heard of, but didn't read." Dorothy (a certified mixologist) and Vrai (a lightweight) drink specially-themed cocktails apropos of various pulp, trash, and weird lit books, then attempt to put their English degrees to use through the haze of alcohol. Highlights in the past have included work by Dan Brown, Anne Rice, and V.C. Andrews. You can help us pay for out-of-print books and the booze that makes them readable!

Of course we value all of our fans, whether or not they choose to--or can afford to--send money our way. You'll continue to get the same content on the same schedule for as long as you listen to us.
But for people who do give, here is a rundown of the specific returns on investment we can promise.

Here's What You Get:

$2 per Month
Drink Recipes & Early Access

You will get access to episodes on Soundcloud one day before other fans. Also, Dorothy will compile all of her recipes from Drunk Book Club and share them with the class via a locked Google doc.

$5 per Month
Additional Content

We will give you access to one additional episode of content per month. This may range from a standard T&T movie discussion, to a Drunk Book Club, to an experimental segment where we talk about other stuff like terrible video games or weird fandom history.

$9 per Month
Commission one Trash & Treasures Episode

Patrons donating at this tier may select a movie for the three regular hosts to show the internet. Love it; hate it; just need others to witness some fever dream that only you have heard of? This is your tier.
While we are willing to work with you, we reserve the right to ask you to change a selection should we find it triggering, inappropriate, impossible/prohibitively expensive to legally acquire, or far enough outside our expertise that we are unable to adequately discuss it, among other reasons.
Patrons must remain subscribed at this level for 2 consecutive months in order to qualify for reward.

$12
Commission one Drunk Book Club Episode

Patrons donating at this tier may select a book for Dorothy and Vrai to show the internet.
Drunk Book Club takes more time to produce and is a more expensive show in terms of materials costs, which is why we need to make this a separate tier. Our books are often out-of-print and must be sourced physically, and alcohol costs are really no joke when making craft cocktails For The Lulz.
But if you have a terrible book that The World Must Know Of, or something you really want drunkenly overanalyzed, this is your tier.
While we are willing to work with you, we reserve the right to ask you to change a selection should we find it triggering, inappropriate, impossible/prohibitively expensive to legally acquire, or far enough outside our expertise that we are unable to adequately discuss it, among other reasons.
Patrons must remain subscribed at this level for 2 consecutive months in order to qualify for reward.

Thank you for considering us, and for any contribution you may choose to make. We're truly grateful.

~Dorothy, Vrai, and Shawn
