Events, a BoCo update, and a hint at some big news!

Posted by Stacey Molski on 15th March 2023

Some real talk from me, Stacey Molski: I know I’ve been writing to you a lot but I think you’re going to understand why soon, so stick with me.

And, look, I know we’re an enthusiastic bunch here at MaxFun, so we get excited about a lot of things. I am a natural exclamation pointer! But the news we’re going to share during MaxFunDrive is far and away the biggest thing that has happened in our network’s history. I am SO, SO EXCITED to finally be able to share this news that I’ve had to keep quiet from you (and, like, everyone else in my life), but we’re gonna have to wait a little longer.

In the meantime, an update about Meetup Day, our Grand Opening and upcoming changes to our Bonus Content…

Event reminder: MaxFun Meetup Day and MaxFunDrive Grand Opening

With MaxFunDrive less than a week away, I wanted to remind you of two of our upcoming events.

MaxFun Meetup Day
Thursday, March 23 at 6pm

MaxFun Meetup Day is back for the first time since 2019! We’ve already got meetups happening in NYC, LA, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Nashville, San Antonio, Seattle, Portland, and Toronto. Start a meetup in your town! It’s super easy. All you have to do is pick a place that can hold a small group (preferably somewhere outdoors or with good ventilation), and let us know about it so we can help you spread the word.

You can email C.N. at and they will get it up on our site so other folks can find it. They also made a super handy kit for meetup hosts looking for some tips or inspiration. I met folks at past meetup days who are my real-life close friends now, so I think Meetup Day is one of the most fun things about MaxFunDrive.

MaxFunDrive Grand Opening
Monday, March 20 at 4pm PT

We’re hosting a MaxFunDrive Grand Opening! Hosts Janet Varney, Dan McCoy, and Ellen Weatherford will be getting into a sticky situation as they compete to see whose artistic and culinary skills will combine to make the finest work of edible art. A bunch of MaxFun HQ staff (pictured here) will be on hand, too! We’ll also show you what some of the cool MaxFunDrive gifts look like in real life (well, over a screen, but close enough). Set a reminder on YouTube!

A big update to Bonus Content

We all know that Bonus Content is our most popular thank you gift, both during the MaxFunDrive and year-round. Now we’re making it easier to access than ever before! The highlights are:

  1. Members now get two Bonus Content feeds: one for all MaxFun BoCo, and one that they can customize with BoCo from the shows that they choose
  2. It’s a lot easier to access BoCo — if you visit our membership site on your phone, and use one of the supported podcatchers, you can add BoCo with one tap
  3. Your BoCo feeds are specific to you, which means that they’ll continue to be updated for as long as you have your membership. There’s no need to update your feed each year.

If you’re not a member now, we hope that these new BoCo improvements will be an extra reason for you to consider becoming one during the MaxFunDrive (which starts on Monday)!

All right, that’s all I’ve got for today, friends. See you at the Grand Opening and I hope you can make it to a meetup!  If you go to the LA one, come find me and say hi!
The next time I find your inboxes, I think we will have A LOT to talk about.
Thank you!
– Stacey and all your pals at Maximum Fun
