How (and Why) to Sponsor the Podcast
Every episode of The Good Friends of Jackson Elias is free to download. While producing and distributing the podcast costs time and money, we much prefer to make it available to everyone.
To help offset these costs, we started up a Patreon page. It has proved far more successful than we anticipated and has helped enormously to sustain and grow the podcast.
We are very grateful to everyone who has backed us. This gratitude is not just an abstract thing, however. We offer a variety of rewards to all our backers.
Full details are available on our Patreon page. Some highlights include:
The Blasphemous Tome
Once a year, we produce a print-only fanzine and send copies to all our backers. The Blasphemous Tome is a throwback to the gaming ‘zines of the ’80s, complete with gaming content, reviews, behind-the-scenes looks at the podcast and old-school cut-and-paste layout.
As of issue 3, The Blasphemous Tome is licensed by Chaosium and includes authorised content for Call of Cthulhu.
For more details, please see our page about The Blasphemous Tome.
We produce a new custom Christmas Card every year and post one to every backer at the $3 and $5 levels. The designs are suitably eldritch and sanity-blasting.
Those brave and foolhardy souls who back us at the $5 level or higher can expect a very special form of thanks. We craft a special song commemorating each such backer, using our special blend of enthusiasm, cacophony and complete lack of musical talent.
Exclusive Audio Downloads
As we discuss a number of weird tales on the podcast, we thought it would be helpful to distribute our own readings of some of them. Our Weird Whisperings series includes a number of public domain horror stories, read by one of the Good Friends.
We hold occasional voice chats with any backers who wish to join us. These are forums to let you know about our plans for the podcast and to find out the kinds of things you’d like us to talk about in future episodes.
