MaxFunDrive 2021 Has Begun!

The text “MAX FUN DRIVE 20201” is written on a sign resembling an old drive-in sign. To the left is the additional text “May 03 to May 14”.

Today is the first day of MaxFunDrive 2021! If you’re new to our shows, many of them are a part of the audience-supported podcast network Maximum Fun. The MaxFunDrive is our annual fundraising event and celebration of our audience.

First things first, thank you: The support you have given us is the sole reason we are able to do what we do. That you have continued to support us as enthusiastically as you have over so many years is both humbling and deeply appreciated. To say we are lucky is an understatement of the highest order.

We know that for some folks, now’s not the right time to join or upgrade your membership - that’s totally ok! There are a ton of ways you can join in and show your support by leaving reviews, helping to spread the word on social media, and more!

For those of you who are in a position to join or upgrade your membership, tiers start at $5 per month, which will give you access to over TWO HUNDRED HOURS of bonus content. If you sign up at $10 a month, you’ll get all that delicious bonus content, plus a MaxFun Membership Card, and your choice of one of this year’s crop of enamel pins. Signing up at $20 will get you all of those things, plus the super rad Take a Minute Tea Kit featuring a tea tin designed by Atomic Pixies, a special loose leaf tea blend from Wishes Tea Company, a rocket strainer and a tray! If you join at $35 a month, you’ll get all of that along with a rad lidded, rocket-engraved insulated cup. You can see previews of our pins and all of this year’s donor gifts below or at

To sign up, upgrade or boost your membership just go to You’ll choose a membership level from the grid of options, provide some basic information and billing details, and voila! You’re a member!

Don’t forget to select the shows you listen to when you’re asked for your listener habits! Those questions determine how your membership funds get distributed among the MaxFun shows. Your contribution will process automatically each month and renews automatically each year.

You all make what we do possible, in the most literal and practical sense. Your support has allowed us to make entertaining you our full time job, and it’s the best gig we’ve ever had. MaxFunDrive is our chance to stand humbly before you and ask if we can keep our job for another year. We hope you’ll agree.
