It was a good episode. I'm in for the 6.66 subscription. Will there be an option to buy it for a whole year?
Not yet. This is an experiment and we're only committing for 6 months. We're going harder on the show than ever with only one or two weeks off in the first 6 months. It will be grueling. But if we get the subscriptions that we're hoping for, we'll commit to being full time podcasters. Like, quit our day jobs. And with that we'll offer a year long subscription plus other cool things.
One thing, we didn't really talk about is that all these new show ideas will be included in the subscription fee. So if this works, you guys get more and more stuff for the same amount of money. It's just this initial thrust where we find out how much actual support we'll get.
Reading about other shows that moved to a pay model, I've seen a 35% subscription on the high end and as low as 1% on the other end. If we can keep 8% of our audience, we can do this.
