Become a true Downer by joining The Downers Club and get even LESS comfortable bonus content!

The System is Down is the podcast for all discussions uncomfortable, namely Conspiracies, Politics, and Religion, but a lot of you who listen to the show just don't seem uncomfortable enough. To remedy that, I give you The Downers Club.

By joining The Downers Club, in addition to getting weekly bonus content, merch discounts, and many more perks to come, you will also be helping give back and increase the quality of the show in the near future.

Online hosting isn't free, websites aren't free, time isn't free. This podcast is something that I absolutely love to create and give to you at no charge, but I want to continue to make this show bigger, better, and less comfortable than you could ever imagine. If you'd like to help make that happen, or if you just want some more stuff, sign up for The Downers Club today.

Thanks!

Breaking Even

$35 per month

For basic operations to continue running this show, making no profit, our annual expenses to break even and cover podcast and web hosting, we're currently looking at $35 per month, which may not sound like a lot but it adds up to about $420 per year with no return. 

Expansive Advertising

$45 per month

If this goal is met, I will be able to cover basic expenses for regular opperations and also be able to put a little extra into advertising to grow the show, build credibility, and ultimately have bigger guests on, which means better entertainment for you. 

Equipment / Quality Upgrades

$60 per month

If this goal is met, I will be able to cover basic expenses, advertise and build the show, and also be able to upgrade my net, audio, and potentially video equipment. With these upgrades, the weekly show will be as crisp and clean as absolutely possible without bandwidth interference, pops, or background noise. I am also considering eventually doing some video episodes, possibly even some done live with certain guests to give you a more interactive and exciting experience. 

Feed My Children

$70 per month

Yes, this one is last, because I have priorities. Once everything else is covered to give you, the listener the most optimal show experience, whatever extra money I have left will feed my children.

Obviously, this is a joke, but honestly, if the show were ever to get to a point where it could subsidies any of my regular income, I will be able to free myself up a bit to continue expanding the show, giving your more episodes per week, finding bigger and better guests, and so forth.   

Pipe dream?... Maybe... It's up to you. 

I Quit My Day Job

$2,000 per month

That's right, if we reach just $2,000 per month, I'll quit my other jobs and I'm all yours. All of my time will be focused soully on building this show and starting others, to bring you nothing but the best... Make it so. 

If you become a patron to The System is Down, you’ll immediately get access to as many as 102 patron-only posts.

    Hey Guys! Happy New Year! Just became a Patron. Love the show. Keep up the good work. Just a few show suggestions if I might be so bold. How about The Crusades, Genesis 1:28 or the Vatican observatory. Thanks!
