Welcome Squeamers!

Thank you for supporting The Horrific History Podcast and checking out our Patreon! Our bi-weekly main episodes will always remain free, but if we can raise enough financial support from our listeners each month we’ll have the means to develop more merchandise, expand to weekly free episodes, as well as create bonus episodes and content rewards available exclusively for our Patreon supporters!

Each bi-weekly episode typically receives over 40 hours of volunteer time including research, fact-checking, recording, editing, production elements, copy writing, social media, website maintenance and more! All that work is divided between just two volunteers, your co-hosts, Eric Slyter and Jordan Watney. If we are to expand beyond our current level of programming we need to be able to compensate our volunteers for their hard work and offer them the security to be able to devote more time, energy and focus to its further development. To accomplish that goal, we’re hoping to fund this free program PBS-style, through listener-supported programming.

We want to provide you an even better listener experience with improved sound, more frequent episodes and a ton of more regular (and BONUS!) content for our website and social media accounts. To do that, our small 501c3 nonprofit needs to be able to bring Eric and Jordan on as paid staff so they can devote more time to the program without risking starvation and homelessness. Because Kron’s budget goes towards maintaining our other discounted educational programs for underfunded schools, libraries and museums, we simply can’t afford to bring them on as paid staff by ourselves. (Our one and only full-time paid staff, our Executive Director, already receives far less than he needs and deserves; we can't add more regular staff without outside funding.)

We appreciate all of our listeners. If all you can do is regularly download and listen to our free episodes, write us a positive review, fill out a listener survey and recommend us to a friend that still helps! Things like that make our podcast more attractive to potential advertisers, which would give us the ability to fund the program through ad revenue. But, if you want to go above and beyond by contributing a few dollars to support our program each month, you'll get added to our Listener Hall of Fame and all the proceeds will go to providing you more awesome and squeam-filled content! We'll definitely make it worth your while!

Thanks for listening and supporting us… Until next time, no squeam allowed!
