    ANNOUNCEMENT: Patreon Drive and Scheduled Releases

    Check us out on Twitter @AsterPodcasting and on Patreon at patreon.com/mxeliramos!

    TRANSCRIPT:
    Hi folks! Eli Ramos here, head of Aster Podcasting Network. We have a lot of stuff we’re doing in August, so I wanted to give you all a rundown of it. First off, if you’re not linked with us on our social media, check us out on Twitter @AsterPodcasting. We’re doing Twitter takeovers from our other showrunners so you’ll hear from Aidan, Callie, Inigo, and myself about our shows and the Patreon drive. We’re still in the middle of it and we’ve got tons of stuff we want to share with you… if you can help us hit our New Patron goals at any level! You get access to art, behind the scenes, annotated scripts, early releases. You can pledge at any level, ‘cause anything and everything helps. And if you can’t pledge, just boosting our Patreon at Patreon.com/mxeliramos by telling your friends and telling them to tell their friends about it, is so helpful. We don’t currently have any advertising, it’s all word of mouth, so whatever you can do to boost us will go to support our showrunners, editors, and actors and help us to create more content.

    Speaking of content, you’re getting a lot of it down the pipeline, I’ll go ahead and lay out the schedule of what’s happening in August. First week, check our Twitter for Aidan’s posts and keep an eye out for our announcement of the big showrunner’s stream we’ll be doing. It’ll be art, commentary, and conversation and it should be a lot of fun. On Friday the 6th, you get to hear Crown Jewels Episode 4 on their feed, so check out Crown Jewels by Inigo Sherwani wherever you listen to podcasts. Or if you want to hear it early, pledge $5 and up to our Patreon! Next week, we have Callie on the Twitter and on Friday the 13th, you can check us out here for HOW TO LOSE YOUR BODY IN TEN DAYS starring August Carroway and written by Tyler Jay. Third week of August, tune in for Inigo’s posts, and FIRE IN THE SNOW written by Audrey Pham on Friday the 20th releasing here. Fourth week and the last few days of August, I’ll be posting about Under the Electric Stars, The Sound of Your Name, other APN Presents shows, and of course, you have the release of SkillSet by Aidan to look forward to on Friday the 27th—we’ll be crossposting it here too. So yeah, you have until the end of August to pledge or tell your friends to pledge, and until the end of August to enjoy the absolute barrage of content that’s coming your way. Excited to share it with you, and thanks for listening.
