Jake’s got a shirt you need to buy

I really cannot say it any better than Jake did himself…  So in his words…

“Let me paint a picture. Here’s you. You’re out with some friends, maybe drinking/bowling/shopping/drinking and you’re wearing a cool shirt that’s inspired by the poster for Dawn of the Dead. All of a sudden, through the crowd an attractive male or female person walks up to you and says “Hey… Cool shirt…” You smile and say “Thanks, I know the guy that designed it.” And then, you and the attractive, somewhat mysterious (if you’re into that sort of thing) male or female go out and get tacos. If you buy this shirt, this could actually happen.”

At the B, A, Start Podcast we endorse getting tacos with somewhat mysterious people, and strongly encourage you to buy yourself THE ultimate ice breaker tee shirt, designed by the very same man who did our logos.

The future of the B, A, Start Podcast


Hello, friends and fellow cheaters, this week’s podcast will be delayed for a day or two.  The reason for this delay, unlike delays in the past, is to announce some upcoming changes in the format of the show and to make you aware of all the locations to get our content.  With this post comes a video by me, Austin, explaining what you can expect going forward and laying out all of our thoughts on how the show will continue.  So please watch the video and give us some feedback on our email bastartshow@gmail.com.

In short, the podcast you know as the B, A, Start Podcast will move from being recorded on Sunday night, to being recorded live on Thursday afternoon.  The show will be made immediately available to Patrons to download as an MP3 on our Patreon, or a week later for everyone else.

We will also be adding a new show about anything and everything that we will be recording on Sunday nights.  This show will also be immediately available to Patrons through our Patreon.  The new show will feature guests much more frequently than the B, A, Start Podcast and be a much looser off topic kind of show.  We will talk about anything from games to movies, to sharing stories to just talking amongst ourselves.  We hope this way to provide a much more entertaining listening experience, as well as keeping you in the loop about what we have been up to.

The last, but perhaps most important, thing we are announcing is our Patreon tiers.  We have new tier rewards ranging from $1 to $30 to help encourage a more community like feel to our content and to reward our supporters.  We feel our shows have the potential to be a must download for anyone interested in current media news and comedy podcasts, but we also feel like we could do better.  Pledging to us will guarantee improvement in what we do as well as more content.  We have tons of ideas and want you to be a part of the future of the B, A, Start movement.

As always we are looking for feedback about what kind of things you want to see, and what kind of rewards you think we should offer for throwing your hat in with us.  Email any of your thoughts to bastartshow@gmail.com and tell us what you think about the direction we are heading in.

One last thing, the changes we outline in this post and in the video are not effective immediately.  For the time being, we will be transitioning into what we have outlined but will continue to put out the B, A, Start Podcast on Monday’s until further notice.  Please visit our Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/bastartpodcast and see if any of our current rewards interest you.  If not, be sure to let us know what you would like to see going forward.

Jake Smith’s Dark Souls patches

Good friend of the show and Patreon supporter Jake Smith made a few patches for anyone to use inspired by Dark Souls.  We think these are amazing, and our listeners are invited to use them for anything you want.  Be sure to thank Jake and go to his Dribbble page to see more of his work and get his contact info.

New Logos!

We are excited to reveal some redesigns done to our logo by the amazing Jake Smith.  These new designs are simple and only really add to what we already have, but we couldn’t happier with them.  From this point on the show’s main logo will be the initials BASP.  Jake has done all the art for our show since the beginning and he does amazing work in no time flat.  To see more amazing work by Jake visit his Dribble page here.

We are now on Patreon

We have had a lot of fun the past year putting out content and podcasts, but one thing we’ve realized is it can be sort of expensive at times to keep everything free.  So we have decided to make a Patreon page to give listeners a chance to support or show and content.  Anything gained through Patreon will be used to directly enhance our content.  We still need to do some work putting together rewards for patrons and making the page look nice, but for now, we thought it best to get the page up.  So go over to www.patreon.com/bastartpodcast and check it out.  Give what you can spare if you want to, or don’t no problem.  Thank you for supporting the B, A, Start Podcast anyway you do.
