Welcome everybody to 2022 in Acts of the blood. God. I'm your host cat Bailey, and with me is always my lovely co-host. Nadia Oxford. I can't wait to keep on writing 2020 on my stuff because I have him in advance past that and also, yeah, it's all just one giant blur to me. We've lost many years in this and we're all just trapped in the pine voice. So I'm sure 22 is a number to somebody but it's nothing to me back in 2021. And oh my gosh, it was a resounding success. We thank you so much for supporting acts of the plug outs for everything. We did a lot of really fun stuff over the course of the year. We put it a lot of great RPGs in the pantheon.
Did Summer of the Rings. We make cool commemorative year, one pins, and we ranked Final Fantasy Tales of and Cowboy Bebop. There's a ridiculous amount of exclusive content are all of our patrons so you can go and see through our catalogs. And if you have a hard time finding it go check out blood guide pod.com, the website that we built over the course of the year. We also added Eric to the Pod is an official co-host. Is that amazing? Yeah. I try. Look. I'm here has been really nice like the last few reviews on the Apple podcast feed have been, like, I love Eric, he had so much for the show. He's great. I like to think that I just had chaos. You do like, like yennefer, you know, I just accept bring chaos into the world. Everything. I really liked about having Eric on the show is that he brings a different perspective and he catches a lot of the stuff that we might have missed. Otherwise, I'm
So I think the rest of our coverage is expanded dramatically since adding Eric to the show and really well between the three of us. It's a lot of fun, I think so. And I'm glad they're gone because he's I don't think it's kind of insulted. When I suggest a good younger influence, like he's fresh blood that we can drink for energy, but is it good to have around? Because I tend to miss things cat tents, miss things. We were like this would like to stick to our niches to the rolled in, like, you know, just these old hands in a nest and Eric. Is there the young youngster, who, who guesses off our ass? Hey, I'm about to be at least a middle. If not an old. I'm about to be at least a middle. So young any more fattening the black guy going up fresh meat?
2022 is going to be a great year for games between Elden ring. Starfield breath of the wild to which of course, we are covering are, we were just doing that. We're about to do the 2022, RPG preview recording, and we're just going down the list of games. And it was just like, oh my God, they're 2022 is going to be absolutely stacked bar PG's. It's going to be incredibly exciting here. Not only is it stacked with stuff, we know is, but there's always a surprise or two that just flips in from the falls. And so I'm ready for whatever the year your jeans to give me. So here are some changes. You can expect it to the patreon this year. The first one in. This is a big one. Going forward. Weekly episodes will release at the same time for both backers and people on the free fee. So here's the reason we're doing this. We really like to create as much value as possible for the People by giving them lots of specials and other things.
It was really hurting the ability for the show to actually grow because people just weren't finding value in the free fade. Even that is a new Focus podcast and the News was typically a week or so going forward. We just think it's going to be a better product overall. If the if everybody gets access to the episodes at the same time on a weekly basis in early, the best way to go. I just kind of looking at our certificates everything and people not to complain, but kind of Punch-Out. Hey, the news is behind this week. I was going on and it eliminates confusion as well. Say that. Yeah, I think it makes the most sense for what we're doing with the weekly episodes, if it's going to be what we're playing news, that sort of thing a very current podcast that it lets us do that while also growing bring a new listeners. And then I think that also opens us up to put more things on
Special seed in and add more value to the patreon and other ways rather than just early episodes to make up for that specials. Will now be fully paywalled for listeners at the $5 level and above so that if you're at the $5 level, you get something tangible. Okay, so we're not going to do the week early thing with specials anymore. Basically shows like Charles and dropouts will now be fully behind the $5 to Euro as well as the other special that we do. We do a lot. We do 3 specials or two specials two or three specials per month. So there's going to be a lot going to do another summer series Summer of the Rings but, you know, possibly for a different movie or possibly even for a game summary of Narnia listed, so if you subscribe
$5 level you will get access to all of the specials that go up. And if your Final Fantasy 14 fan, you'll get access to Charles and dropouts which will continue in 2020 to talk about all the expansion stuff and all the patches and everything that is coming out around that time. Consider it part of your stub. You don't pay my sub. Well, yes, I do want to, I don't know. Now you play doubles. I don't know how to record blank. Sorry everyone. Here, some other specials. We would like to do. We like to rank the Dragon Quest games. Yes, we would sure that they're going to be other interesting discussions that we're going to have maybe some interviews in there. Maybe we'll do special discussions around movies or TV shows that end up coming out real self and suggestions. Honestly, we tried a lot of different things. In the thing that seemed to land a heart is usually our ranking episodes of people's eyes love ranking episodes. They really do people like numbers and even though I do people like that too, but they like to see letters and numbers.
And how they kind of lineup for their own personal preferences. That's what we got to do to make her scream.
And finally, this is the big one for adding a brand new here. Yes. Patrons at the $25 level will have access to all of our account at content. And here's the kicker. They will also get access to a special pre and post-show where they can hang out with us chat with us and everything will respond will cab, you get to CD an additional side effects of the black eyed. Shall we say? And you can watch us record the episode live so you can just hang out and enjoy blood. Unfiltered Shelly said, it's like God is sausage making? Wow, that's yes. It's going to be a blast. I mean chaos. Fantastic. I feel like this is a good combination of both. The idea of us doing a little bit more streaming and also some of the blood God after dark that we had joked about of just kind of let
Your hair down sort of stream that y'all will get to see. I imagine a lot of goofiness, a lot of the stuff that sometimes gets cut out, you sometimes Nadia. So it's a little bit goofy ass back in there at the end, but I don't have to wait for the recording.
And we are going to sow. Discord has made some updates recently, and we changed our Discord to a community Discord, which means that we can do something equivalent to club house, which is that people can be in the channel watching us and we don't have an artificial limit this time around like you do, right. That was a real thing. I remember that we're kind of learning on the Fly again. Going back to how great Eric is. He's really good at technical stuff like that and I'm still not great at YouTube video. Stuff, neither. Am I? So, it's once a gold-plated reason to have Eric on board. But yeah, we'll have a couple special channels that the backers of that to your will be able to access and will be able to a chat with us and everything. Well, listening and watching us gab about RPGs and everything, but it's not just that if you're at the $25 level, and this goes for $50 and $100.
Nations as well to get access to all of this. So but we are anybody at the $25 level and above gets a free year to pin. Yes. We're doing a run of your two pins and other extra gifts that we're going to come up with and we're going to give some exclusive deals on Birch, possibly even some exclusive, so you'll be able to purchase. So I got a lot of ideas. So what we should do is be a warped. I want to get an illustrator who can do so much high-quality merge, you know what I'm saying? Have a hoodie with like our our 30th episode on it. Yeah. There you go.
Omicron Transformer, I like Transformer by was killed us all first week. I like to call it to learn virus, t.i. 80s, bangs Herbstreit to the Armitron. Marriott over the course of the past year is that we've been putting aside money each month and we have a decent amount of money now and that should be enough to pay for Eric and Nadia to be able to go to Patxi's. So I'm also good, but we'll see. Going to Burning Man this time. I'm not going to bring that while I've got the Pax, West panel, and we can meet up and maybe we'll do it in tandem with retronauts. I love you. A lot of fun. That would be funny if we are at Pax which hopefully with the case, then we
We'll find ourselves on my crush net channels as well and stuff like that. So we would definitely is another thing to look for 10. I got a few more a year, one pin. So I'll bring those with me. And so people who come hang out with us, will be able to buy your one pins. We will buy Your Love by the way, if you still want to hear one pin, just DM me. I've, I've been selling them kind of piecemeal and that kind of thing as well. Do you know, I'm always happy to pay for tens. So we've learned a lot from this past year, in terms of what works with the community how to do events, what works with the podcast, that's what doesn't work with a podcast. What works with a child with doesn't work with a patreon, even the formatting of the actual episodes. I think has been steadily improving. I've been really enjoying the naughtiest Nostalgia cooking.
Harris contribution to the think we should name that we should come up with a good name for that statement. I don't know. It's like Untitled Goose game. You know, why or why? You're welcome to the Untitled, Eric segment. I'm going to call it that you can keep all of that. I like that. How do I combine insipid? Nadia ramblings, but we're going to have put currently playing back at the front of the episodes cuz it makes just makes a little more sense. Yeah, and what we were discussing the other day, we were talking about this and I think it's true is that it's a great warm-up. So I think it belongs to the front.
Anyway, so yeah, that those are the updates that you can look forward to. On the Patriotic in 2022, were looking forward to another amazing year of actual bug out, and he thinks our backers so much or all of their support. Specially Brian Skynyrd, exclusively, Lex and Alexia who are our wonderful mods over at the discard. The discard has been absolutely lovely. I love thee. The Cadence of it is so chill and so wholesome and so positive, whatever, 100-dollar patient comes on and show. Everybody is just the episode and there's lots of wonderful comments and everything, just warms my heart. Yeah. It's been a really great year for myself, like, kind of discovering what I can do and what my limits are and what they go beyond. I just never really saw myself ever podcasting for a living and I'm glad I do. Don't get me wrong. That's why. I'm glad I do is just the strangest thing to me. So it is been a wild deer and I just I'm sure Kat and Eric.
Well, ER, I just like overwhelmed beyond words for your support, especially in such hard times. When things are in certain jobs, like, being the least of all, but not least of all. And I'm glad that we can at least talk little bit of heart disease and, you know, that you forget about things for a while and relax.
Yeah, I think there's just so much room for us to keep growing and it's been really exciting to join on this as as the newcomer and bring in new ideas. And I'm sure going into the new year. There are a couple ideas. I've been floating bike at in the background of of stuff that that I can do to Spur things up here as well. So it's I think there's just so much room for potential and opportunities to just deliver more blood, God excellence. And so it's it's exciting school be a good year and we got a lot of good father to work with, like I was mentioning earlier so many games coming out in 2022, so
All right. Let's get back to the podcasting. Thank you so much for listening. And if you want to send feedback on the show, do me a favor. Send it to me on Twitter at the end of the cord cap. I consider that cat up look up, or if you're on the Discord just DM me her job. Something instead of just suggestions. We we read all of it. We even if we don't always necessarily respond, okay. For listening. We look forward to an amazing 2022. Thank you so much for your support and for now Derek and myself. Happy Venturi.
