Improve July with The 9pm Edict

Subscription Hero Image 1Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to fund more episodes of The 9pm Edict podcast in June and beyond. Get that red line to $1000, people. Get that black line to, oh, let’s say $2000. Both by 30 June 2014.

You can do it.

Become an ongoing supporter, and subscribe to one of the packages. Or if you have commitment issues, which is nothing* to be ashamed of, then make a one-off contribution and become a friend with benefits.

You must do it.

Do it now.


Oh. You want explanations first. Well, alright then.

Look at this chart.

Subscription Drive Progress, 17 June 2014The red line shows the dollar value of ongoing monthly subscriptions. That number grew steadily during The 9pm Resurrection Pozible crowdfunding campaign at the end of April, and then flatlined because I wasn’t plugging it.

The black line shows the total amount going into the monthly production pool — the subscriptions plus any one-off contributions. When a new month starts, that drops back to equal the subscriptions.

For every $500 or part thereof, that’s another episode of The 9pm Edict. At the end of April, there was a little over $1000 on the pool, so that meant two episodes in May, The 9pm Shire and The 9pm Caltrain.

And the end of May, there was only a little more than the ongoing subscriptions of slightly more than $300, so that means one episode for June, coming soon — probably The 9pm Solstice on Saturday 21 June.

You really do need to subscribe, or even just throw a few dollars into the tip jar, otherwise the goats are in trouble.

If you’ve got any questions, suggestions or special requests for benefits that might well persuade you to subscribe, please add them in the comments — because I’ll be adding more, erm, inducements over the coming days.

* You should be ashamed, now that I think about it.
