Support GRTTWaK

Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids is an independent production, supported by people who want it to exist.

When you become a patron of GRTTWaK, you support the show directly. This allows us to organize live events, record stories in as many different places as possible, and produce new podcast episodes in a sustainable way.

Three levels of support

We have three levels of patronage, each named after a phase of growing up:

Weird Little Kid Awkward Pre-Teen Angsty Teenager

* Weird Little Kids are charged quarterly ($6 every 3 months), to avoid payment processing fees

All levels of patronage are in Canadian dollars, and are set to renew automatically. You can cancel at any time.

What you get

Beyond our sincere thanks, and the opportunity to support a thing you love, you also get early access to tickets for live events. Live GRTTWaK shows often sell out very quickly, and we’ll make a special block of tickets available to patrons first.1

No pressure

Patronage is completely optional. If you’d rather not, or just aren’t in a place where you can support the show financially, no worries and no weirdness. Honest. But if you care about GRTTWaK and want to support it, consider becoming a patron today.

One-time options

If you’d prefer a one-time non-recurring way to support the show, we have that too:

If you’d like to support the show with another amount, just email Dan.

Thank you!

Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids has always been a grassroots, word-of-mouth kind of thing, and the very fact that you’re reading these words means a lot. If you’re considering becoming a patron, thank you. We couldn’t do GRTTWaK without you.


Is this a paywall for the podcast?

No. The podcast is totally free to download, and will remain that way. Patronage is completely optional.

I’m not Canadian. Can I still become a patron?

Of course you can. If you support GRTTWaK using one of the links above, your credit card will be charged in Canadian dollars.

Is this secure?

Yes. Patronage is handled by Memberful, and payments are processed through Stripe. You can read more about their online security here and here. Neither GRTTWaK nor Memberful has access to your credit card data.

How do I change/manage/cancel my patronage?

Simply sign in to your Memberful account using the email address and password you used when you signed up. To cancel, click Subscriptions then Turn off auto-renewal. If you run into trouble, email Dan.

  1. Don’t worry. We’ll always have general admission tickets and reader spots available to everyone (patron or not), first-come, first-served.
