Bonus Content Alert

We are entering a new era! We are offering EXCLUSIVE content to special Posse members from now on. Our show is, has been, and always will be free for you to download or stream. But what we are offering now, is BONUS CONTENT!!! For as little as one dollar per month, or as much as ten dollars per month, you can get things that no one else gets. What are we talking about?

Okay, here’s the situation (you know you read that in the Fresh Prince voice), we bring you this show for free. It is NOT free for us to make the show, have a website, put video together, and all the other things that no one knows that go into making a podcast happen. We don’t like asking people for money, we don’t like handouts, we don’t want to do “GoFundMe” campaigns, we want to give you something for your money. So what exactly do you get for your money? Let me tell you!

For the low, low cost of one dollar per month (you read that right, ONE dollar) you will enter the Gerardo Level. Gerardo technically qualified as hip hop. At this level, you technically qualify as a Posse Patron. For being nice enough to toss us a buck, we will give you access to the uncut version of our audio. All mistakes, breaks, off air discussions, and other things that never make it to air….will make it to you.

For the cost of TWO dollars per month, you move up to the Extra Cheese Level. Everyone knows….extra cheese is two dollars. We aren’t mailing you a slice, though….we will give you the uncut version of the show AND Jamie or Bill (your choice) will make  a special “Extra Cheese” playlist (on Spotify) that will change regularly.

For the cost of FIVE dollars per month…seventeen cents per day, you enter the Luniz Level. Just like the Luniz, you got five on it. Just like the other levels before you, you get the uncut version of the show, and a special Spotify playlist. But what you get that they don’t, is to get your name (or business) shouted out at the end of our episodes in our thank you section. You will also get an anniversary bonus item that no one else gets! For real, like in the mail, that you can show off!

Finally, for the coast of TEN dollars per month (that’s thirty four cents per day), you reach the pinnacle, that means you reign supreme. You guys are the top of the pyramid, you are Bringing the Noise. Just like the other levels before you, you get the uncut version of the show, and a special Spotify playlist, get your name (or business) shouted out at the end of our episodes in our thank you section. What you ALSO get, is to hang out (literally…. a Google Hangout video chat) with Bill and Jamie once a month. We will set a date and time based on when the most people can make it, and meet all together. You can talk about whatever you want! You will also get an anniversary bonus item that no one else gets! For real, like in the mail, that you can show off! This is even different that the Luniz Level item!!

Every little bit helps, so don’t think that just because you can only pledge one dollar per month that it doesn’t help. That is one dollar more than we had before that point! Again, we aren’t trying to beg, borrow, or steal…..we want to offer you exclusive bonus content for your pledge. So, what are you waiting for? Get in to it….get involved. Go right HERE and sign up now!
