Patreon Ahoy: Support Our Show; Help Us Grow!

1 Jul

After a lot of discussion, planning, and private medieval jousting, The Skiffy and Fanty Show podcast has opened its very own Patreon page.

So why are we there?  We want to do more — and we want to do it better.  More episodes.  More World SF Tour goodness.  Better quality.  Better features.  Better experiences for you, the listener.

Patreon is the first step in making The Skiffy and Fanty Show (and its related podcasts) into something more.  We’re turning to you, the listener.  You can have a hand in helping us create new content, improve the overall quality of the show, and pave the way for a brighter podcasting future.

So head on over to our Patreon page, check out our Reward Levels and our Milestone Goals.  We’ve got some big plans listed there, and even more plans for the future.  It feels like we keep saying this every year, but it needs repeating:  this is only the beginning.
