TL;DR: HERE’S OUR PATREON.

Hi! Since launching in April 2014, Milwaukee Record has informed, delighted, and occasionally perplexed millions of readers with our coverage of all things Milwaukee. Want the best in Milwaukee arts and entertainment? We’ve got it. Want timely news articles about our strange and troubling times? We’ve got it. Want stories about eating at every Milwaukee Taco Bell in eight hours? Or visiting every George Webb on planet Earth in 24 hours? We’ve got that, too.

But what if YOU, our valued and beloved reader, want MORE Milwaukee Record?

Then you’re in luck, because that’s just what you’ll get by becoming a Milwaukee Record patron! Exclusive articles, our new From The Archives podcast (bringing you the stories behind classic Milwaukee Record stories), and other exclusive goodies await. Your monthly donation will help us keep our internet lights on, pay our freelancers, and fund important pieces of journalism like the time we stood in line for 8,000 years to get an autographed bottle of vodka from 50 Cent. And, now, fund podcasts that bring you the story behind the story of the time we stood in line for 8,000 years to get an autographed bottle of vodka from 50 Cent.

We currently have two tiers. (You’ll be charged on the 1st of every month.)

People’s Patron of Milwaukee Record ($5/month)
• Two exclusive articles per month
• Random behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and blog posts

Milwaukee Record Placemaker ($8/month)
• At least two exclusive articles per month
• Two exclusive episodes of our From The Archives podcast per month
• Random behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and blog posts

If people are into it, we might eventually do a higher tier where we send you goofy stuff in the mail. We’ll see!

Want a taste of the podcast? Listen to the freebie first episode below. (It’s about the Taco Bell article.) Want to delve into Matt’s seedy memories of the gloriously seedy Prospect Mall? (It involves a lot of porn.) Well, for that, you’ll have to subscribe.

And yes, our everyday website will remain free and wonderful forever. Thanks!
