Yes, that’s you, if you’ve even listened through one part of an episode! Go you! Your time is priceless to us.
But, did you know there’s an official way to support us as a Patreon Patron, for as little as $1 a month? It’s true! For the price of a song, you can be the reason our peculiar podcast remains ad-free.
Growth is a science! The Podcast market is flooded, and we’ve decided to take higher ground by not relying on third-party marketing to reach you. That means we rely directly on our listeners to reach new subscribers, so fly, fly our little bumble bees! Pollinate all the things!
As a Patreon Clapper, you’ll get updates on where your dollar goes, just like this post right here, which we generally would save until we provided you with a bonus-filled login at shockedandapplaud.com.
Want to get even more officially licensed as an audience member? Become an Applauder at the $5/month level to receive links to bonus content and uncut (still edited, sorry Jonathan) episodes!
From Shocked & Applaud, thank you for patroning the peculiar!
We’re closing in on a $15 24-hour ad, which was a “first one is free” promo from Facebook. Trying to get our gambler/marketer addiction going? Nice try, Mark!
You can see in our screenshot that we had a little less than %1 engagement. That’s actually not too shabby for a brand with 0% public recognition. More importantly, we’re seeing real listeners come through iTunes.
We also discovered our three largest demographics, with men displaying roughly 2x more interest. What’s up with that, girl?
Lastly, we limited ourselves to a WA state audience for better context — our Web server is in OR, so visitors would get a better experience than downloading from say, the east coast.
These types of details and updates will be available to Patreon members soon!
Kevin Smith’s “Tusk” > Episode 1 Part 1 > Bleeped Season 1
00:00 / 40:04
Hey girl, get caught up! If you haven’t yet heard Episode 1, then here’s our film review and hunt down of factoids. Join us for dinner and dress-up as we tear into the first act of Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”!
We invite you to waltz into the life of Wallace, a shock-podder with straight up character fatigue, as he struts his statehood up north to investigate the whereabouts of the mysterious one-legged “Kill Bill Kid”.
Will Wallace find his own voice or lose it in your iTunes Shuffle? Play on, ad-free, on us! Then, head over to Patreon to help us make up the difference.
Remember to subscribe for future episodes, because we’re venturing ever further into the twisted minds of mass media, and who knows where we’ll go next?
Kevin Smith’s “Tusk” > Episode 1 Part 3 > Bleeped Season 1
00:00 / 00:38:52
Look at you! You survived our first full episode in three parts. All things considered, we thought you would have forgotten about us and all the smarts we have to share. Let our third act smackdown review commence in Episode 1 Part 3, Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”!
If you’re not lost at sea, join us for Wallace’s rescue … sort of … with a little help from his friends. But before then, you’ll have to endure scenes of Wallace’s pre-trauma past, a final stop to meet the Yoga Hosers, and a boss battle to end all boss battles.
Endure the punishment, Applauder! Your reward is your life.
