Welcome to our Patreon!

Thank you for even considering supporting us. It means more than we could ever tell you. THANK YOU. So very much.

Y2K is a free audio drama podcast, but creating it costs both time and money. We are as indie as you can get, and have no network, sponsorship or advertising. 

In addition to our deep and heartfelt thank you for supporting us here on Patreon, we try to give you as many perks as we can think of, and we will keep adding more as our Patreon grows. Some examples of what you can receive when becoming a patron:

• Patreon-exclusive episodes
• Early access to episodes
• Patreon-exclusive behind-the-scenes content

Read more about what we offer by checking out our tiers!

We release the prologue in connection with International Podcast Month in September, and the first episode will be out in January 2020. 

About Y2K

No, not the Y2K problem. Though that was... interesting. Just the year. Y2K tells a story of love, identity and long-distance friendship. It is set in both 2000 and 2020, mainly in the cities of London, Birmingham, and Auckland. The characters hail from Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, UK, and more.

It’s the end of 1999. Kat and Jess are very close friends and share a flat in London, UK. In January 2000, Jess moves to Auckland, New Zealand. Their voice mails to each other tell the story of a year in their lives when everything happens, and how they try to support each other from across the oceans.

It’s the end of 2019. Olivia is a student in Birmingham, UK. She is trying to find baby pictures of herself and fires up her mum’s old 90:s laptop. There are no baby pictures, but she does find something else – audio files from 2000, dozens of them. She listens to a few and realizes they are voice mails between her mum and her mum’s friend. She (of course) decides to turn them into a podcast…

“Hey, um, I’m Olivia and this is the Y2K podcast! I guess I should tell you what this is all about… So a few days ago I managed to get my Mum’s old laptop working. I was hoping to find baby pictures of me, there are hardly any and I was curious. I rummaged around this really old black-and-white dodgy-looking interface and found — absolutely no baby pictures. No pictures at all actually. But I did find something else. These old audio files, dozens of them, all labeled with dates from January 2000 onwards. It seems to be a conversation in voice mails between my Mum and a friend of hers, and I’ve only listened to a couple of them but they seem… interesting somehow.”
(January 3, 2020)

JESS: Let’s bring on the new year. Hey, maybe the world *will* end?
KAT: Nah! It’ll be fine. The year 2000 is going to be amazing!

(December 31, 1999)

Are you ready? Welcome… to the year 2000!
