Recently, I was informed that my job of seven years was being outsourced and that my services were no longer required. This was, as you might imagine, a bit of a blow. Thankfully, I am in no immediate financial danger. However, this situation will seriously impact the continued production of this show and, indeed, all of my assorted creative ventures.
And so, despite my general distaste for these things, I have decided to start a fundraiser. My goal is to raise one year’s worth of production costs for the four projects I release regularly: Sarcastic Voyage, Post Atomic Horror, More Bits and my cartoon reviews. If you enjoy one or more of these programs, I ask that you consider donating a little to keep them going.
In the interest of transparency, I have listed the expenses I need help with. Some of these things are essential – server space for the websites, podcasts and videos, for instance. Some of them are things we could live without, but would rather not. And some are “nice to have” items. It’s all on the list, and I promise you that none of this money is meant to go into my pocket. I only want to continue making these things that I love making.
I thank you for your time, and pre-emptively thank you for your support.
Sarcastic Voyage is a triweekly sketch comedy podcast, co-hosted by Ron “AAlgar” Watt and Matt Rowbotham. We like to think that our comedy is accessible to most English-speaking adults, though we do tend to skew a bit toward the nerd end of the spectrum, if we’re being entirely honest about it. While we do have a few running jokes and recurring characters, you should be able to enjoy any given episode of SV, so check out the most recent offering for a sample!
Please note that the archives on this site only go back to about mid-2012. This was the point at which SV transitioned from the typical “two guys talking” show into the format it’s in now. If you dig a little, you can find and download the first 140 or so episodes of the show, but be advised that it’ll be a very different show than the one we’re currently producing.
