Our "Jumbotron" program allows anyone to share their message on a MaximumFun.org podcast - just like the Jumbotron at the ballpark. It's a fun way to show your support for your favorite shows and get the word out about what you're up to. It's easy and cheap - only $100 for a personal message or $200 for a commercial one.
Anyone can buy a personal or commercial message on an upcoming episode of Baby Geniuses; Bunker Buddies; Can I Pet Your Dog?; The Flop House; The Greatest Generation; Jordan, Jesse, Go!; Lady to Lady; Minority Korner; Oh No, Ross and Carrie! ; One Bad Mother; Rose Buddies; Shmanners; Still Buffering; Stop Podcasting Yourself; Throwing Shade; or We Got This. My Brother, My Brother and Me and The Adventure Zone Jumbotrons are sold out for 2017 and are closed at this time.
Here's what you need to know:
What It Is
The Jumbotron program is an accessible and informal way for listeners to sponsor an episode of a MaxFun podcast. These are one-off messages that we offer to our listener community at an almost laughably inexpensive rate. You'll provide a couple of lines of basic info, and you'll get a mention on an upcoming episode.
What It Isn't
We'd love to have you or your company as an advertiser, but personal and commercial messages aren't intended for ongoing advertising campaigns. If you're interested in sponsoring one of our podcasts on an ongoing basis, please contact our Development Director, Theresa Thorn, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Similarly, if you need to get your message out on a specific date, you want to see listener data, or you want to sponsor more than one episode, please contact email@example.com for our advertising rates.
Messages are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. You'll have the opportunity to request a preferred time-frame and we'll do our best to get your message out within that time-frame or as close to it as possible. This calendar, updated about once a week, gives you an idea of when episodes have been booked up.

By The Way
It hasn't come up, but we reserve the right to not run a message. We don't want to get involved in political messages, and will generally err on the side of not accepting messages involving political causes. (Other than the 2012 presidential campaign of Dip Dopson & Chip Dipson, of course.)
