a Buddhist Married a Mormon is creating an online community

Hey friend, we're super excited to have you join our exclusive behind-the-scenes community!

A Buddhist Married A Mormon are conversations (video podcasts) that explore the culture and religion of Mormonism, between two recent newlyweds Veronica & Duke. Duke, from Salt Lake City, has left the Mormon Church and has been ostracized for doing so. He is building a new circle of family & friends with Veronica, a Canadian, and Buddhist.  Veronica, with little understanding of her new husband's cultural background, has A LOT of questions!

What is patronage? Back in the day, people like DaVinci and Shakespeare were passionate about what they had to offer the world. But to achieve their goals, whether it was a new paintbrush set, or a stage, they couldn’t make their work accessible to the public without support from patrons.

Asking for money is weird and awkward. We emphasize that we are not a ministry and your donation is not a tithe or offering. God will not judge you, and neither will we, if you don’t become a patron. Give only if you want to (and can afford to). Don’t feel guilty if you can’t. There is far too much guilt and shame in the world already and we won’t be a party to the suffering those cause.

You matter to us. You are the whole reason we are doing this. Let us THANK YOU for your patronage!

Once you become a patron, you have special access, and unlock the ability message us, so please let us know what ideas you have for building this new community together. Your ideas matter!

Goals
0% complete
Our first goal is to replace equipment. We're producing our content on a 2008 iMac. You read that right, 2008!  Most cellphones today have more processing power and storage than this relic!  At one time it performed well but with the popularity of HD, and a failing graphics card which can't be replaced, it's necessary to replace it as soon as possible before it fails entirely. This goal will help us buy a MacBook Pro. We are so grateful that you are considering our request and willing to help us reach this goal.

The MacBook will cost approximately $3700 so if we can reach patronage of $3700 in a few months we'll be able to purchase it.

We have many future goals we're working towards, including coming to visit your town or city for a meetup in person, so check back here often.

With much gratitude,

Veronica & Duke
