About Gabriel, Sarah, and Zach

Of course there are bad ideas. Like, a lot of them. But any idea can be turned into a good story.

No Bad Ideas is the creation of Gabriel Urbina, Sarah Shachat, and Zach Valenti, three writer and artist-types who, in order to stay fresh creatively, have an excuse to hang out with each other once a week, and check in on what they're working on, take a terrible idea they found on the Internet each week and turn it into a compelling narrative. Or as close as they can get in 30 minutes. If you're someone trying to be creative yourself or even if you just appreciate a good story, you'll enjoy listening to Zach, Sarah, and Gabriel figure out how to make sense of the best (worst?) absurdities the internet has to offer. We guarantee there have definitely been worse ideas. 



Mics cost money. Hosting websites costs money. We don't know if you know this already so apologies if it's old news, but if you live in a building you don't own, there's this thing called rent, and actually it costs a lot of money.

It all seriousness, we've turned to our friends at Patreon - who make it easy for artists to get paid to make more art by the folks who want to good art - in order to help defray the costs of making the show and to help us do more and new and ambitious things for all of y'all. Supporting us here will allow us to not only make this weekly podcast A Thing that continues into the foreseeable future. It will also give us the resources to tackle more ambitious creative projects. Gabriel, Sarah, and Zach were the producers behind the Webby-nominated, eight-million-downloads-and-counting, audio drama podcast Wolf 359, as well as Time Bombs, a miniseries that was made entirely in the span of a single week. We've done long projects, and we'd like to do them again. We've done short projects, and we'd like to do them again. We have medium projects we'd like to make for you, and supporting us here will help us bring them into the world. 

Whether or not you've listened to every episode of Wolf 359 or are just joining us because you heard this was the podcast that did silly things with Best Of Craigslist ads, we want to be in the business of telling stories to you as well and as long as we can. So come join us, get some cool rewards, and hear hopefully many more ideas - varying in quality but always entertaining.

Thanks! 
Goals
$166 of $500 per month
A Script Of Our Own
Once we hit $500 a month, we’ll be able to take the time (and afford the therapy) to lock ourselves away with one of the Bad Ideas we’ve discussed on the show and turn it into a fully-fledged film script that you, our beloved Patrons, will be the first to see. We can’t promise it’ll be the next summer blockbuster, but we can promise we’ll share glimpses of the insanity that is our writing process along the way as we really and truly take a bad idea and turn it into a good story.
