As thanks for your $350 donation you'll get quite a few things.
First, you'll get to guest-introduce a future episode of the show. Don't worry, no one is expecting a performance! Just introduce yourself, say hi to you mom or something and I'll provide the simple script to follow welcoming listeners to the show and introducing the clips we'll be hearing in the episode plus maybe a funny tag line at the end. It's not everyday you get to become a podcast host!
Second, you can put a personal message on the show. Send happy birthday/anniversary/whatever wishes! Ask someone to marry you! Tell someone you want to break up! Whatever your message and whoever your target audience, I'll interrupt the show to convey your message for you.
You will also earn a 2-year full membership. This gives you access to the the bonus show with additional voicemails from listeners and commentary from Jay! as well as access to the full "Archives +" of the show. These go back to January 2006 and are, frankly, kind of fascinating to go back and listen to. I have also set aside my favorite episodes from over the years, so you can zero in on the Best of the Best of the Left. Plus, I've included my personal stash of favorite clips, both political and otherwise. Load these up for your next road trip and you'll be in podcast heaven.
You will also receive 2 apparel items, your choice to mix and match of either a Best of the Left pull-over hoodie or t-shirt from Repair the World, a company dedicated to the triple-bottom line of People, Planet and Prosperity. All of their clothing is made with recycled materials using ethical labor practices. Please specify in the comments box on your order form your desired items and preferred size & color. (Please note that the women's tee runs small so you may wish to order one size larger than you would normally)
Thank you for contributing to this fundraising campaign and helping Best of the Left grow and thrive! You will be thanked on the air, so continue tuning into the show to hear your name. I'll also be sending you a hand-written thank-you card in special appreciation for your generous contribution. Plus, you will be among the first to be notified when the new smartphone app is available! Expect the warm and fuzzy feeling to kick in just after your donation is confirmed.
Please share this fundraising campaign and BOTL podcast with your friends!
