I really liked the story Big. It was well done, and I think having the restraining order and the grave robbing was a good idea.
It does include one of the things that I feel is the hardest thing to pull off in a story, which is the first meeting. I think you handled it pretty good.
I really want to know why the cops were there at the wife's house.. if it was the grave or what?
I'm pretty sure I brought up Patreon to you guys 3 years ago... Mostly because I really don't like PayPal very much.
As soon as I got to the half way part of this episode I went to the Patreon website, but THERE WAS NO DUNESTEEF ENTRY.
Why has this not happened yet?
One of the podcast that I am a patron of has a daily podcast (www.dailytechnewsshow.com
) that does it this way: "We work on a value for value system. Can you spare a nickle an episode? Pledge $1 a month, and that evens out to $.05 an episode. If you can give more, then great!"
Their other podcast is called CordKillers (http://www.cordkillers.com
) and has 2 episodes a week. I pledge $.50 an episode, limited to $2 a month.
So just put it out there. $1, $2, $5, $10, $50 an episode, and then let people put an upper limit if they want, or you can just do a monthly amount.
Personally, I'd be willing to do $1 an episode, and then give it an upper cap depending on how my budget is doing.
That way you guys have an incentive to at least put out 1 episode a month, but if it's something like the Second Worst Marathon Ever or 13 Nights of Halloween my upper limit will keep me from getting overdrawn.
So just put the two Dunesteef channels up there for the basic $1 patrons, and you can maybe do something special for the people that pledge more, like access to any stories that you write or whatever.
If you want to see someone who I think does it very well check out the Daily Tech News Show podcast and the Cord Killers podcast.https://www.patreon.com/dtnshttps://www.patreon.com/cordkillers
They have a non-pushy way of letting people know, and it's basically their income.
