For those giving the equivalent of $50 or more, either all at once or as part of a recurring donation, we'll send you two special bonuses: First, this spring, we’ll send you a collection of behind-the-scenes recordings from the making of Season One, including Julian’s demos, and we’ll give you special, early access to the first episode of Season Two, before it’s released to everyone on our feed.
Thank you for being out there!
