We are grateful for every dollar contributed and we first use all donations to directly pay for production costs such as web hosting, media processing, and equipment upgrades. Further, we can do more with your support such as travel to events and create larger and more complex productions. Examples would be the videos we created for episodes 46 and 47. Plus we feel the perks that we offer for contributing add a greater experience than simply supporting the show you enjoy.
