Catchy title.

Who do you follow? Looking for some additions to mine. I have:

Cum Town - the best. Fiver a month for 4 bonuses, all video and audio now.
Tuesdays With Stories - I've still got a really soft spot for these guys. The earlier episodes with Joe supporting Louis ck and forming a friendship with him were fascinating, as well as the stories of Mark fucking his way around america
Dodds - I just joined this yesterday
Ian Boldsworth - the most work I've ever seen anyone put into something like this and as such, I only dip into a fraction. Dodds Incarcerated, Parapod deleted scenes and the Ask Ian things are what I subscribe for, but there's plenty more, it just depends how much Boldsworth you want in your life
Uhh Yeah Dude - live eps and access to the 14 year archive. It's rare that I listen to them, but it's one of the most wonderful friendships you could witness. I don't think they'll ever stop. First few years are ridiculously consistent and funny. A dollar a month on patreon to access it all. Seatbelts.

All told, that's about 13 quid a month. Anyone know how much the artists get?

Who do you follow and support?
Also, non-comedy?

Is there extra stuff on the Pappy's Patreon?  I catch the FlatSlam occasionally, but I used to really enjoy Bangers and Mash.

Wait, I've been sending a 20 quid note to Patreon's HQ in Milwaukee every week.  Is that not how Patreon works?

There's something every day at the moment.
'Flatshare Lockdown' has had 26 episodes so far.
Plus you get other bonus stuff, and unedited pods.

I used to really enjoy Bangers and Mash.

B&M is now called 'House Meeting' on Flatslam feed.

Only if you're on Patreon's Patreon.

I support Airwindows (£10 a month), a one-man (Chris Johnson) audio plugin developer. He makes all his plugins available for free to everyone, but encourages people to support him so that he can carry on doing what he does.

His approach to plugins is very minimalist and efficient; no GUI, maybe just one or two sliders, or sometimes no controls at all, very low latency and CPU generally. The lack of fancy GUI concentrates you on listening to what is being achieved rather than looking at meters, hence the Airwindows motto: "in mix, no-one can hear your screen".

He also never discontinues plugins just because an "improved" version is released, because there's always somebody who will still go back to the early version. As he releases them at a rate of one a week (every Monday morning), they have become a confusion of audio riches in just a few years; 207 plugins to date.

As a result he has recently made a starter pack and released a plugin called "Monitoring" that bring several of his earlier plugins together.

Useful list of all plugins that somebody is maintaining on Google docs:

I subscribed to David Earl/Brian Gittins but the Patreon app was bloody awful for listening to podcasts on. I'm sure there's a sensible way to rip them but I couldn't be arsed. What's the best method?

I'd pay for more of the Poundcast, and Johnny Pemberton.

Go to your Patreon subscription, then 'My Membership'.
There should be a private RSS link, which you can copy & paste into your preferred podcast app and download/listen that way.

Zola Jesus, which is good as she really engages and post loads of exclusive works in progress, remixes and the odd livestream. She even sent me two postcards.
Also Octavius Kitten and Soph's notes.

TrueAnon is the only one I pay for - I'm not sure I can explain why I like it so much but I think the two hosts have a great and unusual chemistry.

Athletico Parsnips - Cheap at twice the price.
Francis "Viper" Higgins - He's set his Patreon at $5 per video, but he's so far off his target of 500 Patreons I figured it wouldn't actually cost me anything to support him.

I sometimes listen to a number of podcasts mentioned in here already, but I have never come around to the idea of actually paying someone for access to a podcast. They're generally just minimally edited conversations of the caliber that I would have with friends (depending on the subject). That doesn't make them any less entertaining, mind.

Strange new world.
