Hi Friends! Alyssa here! This is what this page is all about:

About Letter Talk / LetterTalkPodcast.com
Letter Talk Podcast is a short (~10 minutes), weekly comedy podcast where I write letters to businesses, public figures, organizations, strangers and friends.

Some letters are heartfelt, some are funny, some are even weird. If I don’t know you, I’ll still write you a heartfelt letter and send it to you in the mail (if you’re not creeped out by me having your address).

Here are a few examples of some correspondence I've written:
  • A back and forth with the egg lobby about how to properly be an egg fan
  • A letter to Carlo Rossi wine asking them to explain some things about Fraiser that I don't understand
  • A postcard to Mitch McConnell with a fun fact about menstrual cups
  • ... and a butt ton more!

Why this page is a thing.
Letter Talk doesn't have advertising, and for the most part, I'd like to keep it that way. Unless a business wanted me to write a letter to them (where I get creative control), I can't really see myself telling you buy a meal kit delivery service. Having a Patron ensures that I can buy supplies, send letters, pay for hosting, and give my sister a kickback for listening to me blah blah blah all the time and fixing my dumb typos.

For those of you who aren't familiar with me personally, I've done stand up and alternative comedy for quite a while, and what bothered me about it was that I felt like I wasn't able to share that often enough with people across the country I love. Starting a podcast was a way I could entertain my friends in far off lands every week. I chose letters because I've always been a big fan of them. I find them highly therapeutic, and I’ve written them since childhood.

What you'll get out of being a Patron.
The wonderful feeling in your heart that you're helping making a fun thing possible. But really here's the actual stuff:
  • Bonuses with every tier! (Yay!)
  • Access to more insight in how the letters are chosen and written.
  • The satisfaction of knowing that you're helping me pay my sister to edit my writing and listen to me brainstorm.
  • Preference for personal letters! Patrons who request letters will be given priority.
  • More access! I'm more than open to suggestions of anything else you'd like along with your Patronage. If you want me to write a letter about something, I'll probably do it! Wowowow!
  • Other comedy related bonuses that might come up (video clips! Audio clips! Free entry into my shows that cost money!)

Thank you for reading through. It warms my little heart. Stay chill, bro.

Love,
Alyssa
