As the second week of the 2017 MaxFunDrive dawns (on the West Coast of the US, at least), we’re sitting at 14,710 new and upgrading members, which is wild – thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has already contributed! Here’s a few quick things to keep in mind as you’re gearing up for your week:
ANNOUNCING WEEK TWO: DAY ONE BONUS CHALLENGE!
Or W2:D1BC for short (This is the year of acronyms. What can we say?). A generous MaxFunster who has been a listener from the very beginning (since Jesse and Jordan started putting The Sound Of Young America out on a podcast feed!) has issued a special challenge, for today only. He’s pledged $2.50 for each new and upgrading member who acts today, up to 800 members! The count starts at 12:30 PM PT and ends at 11:59 PM PT. It’s an extra special day to become a MaxFun member – if you’ve been on the fence, come on down and join! And thank you, generous mystery MaxFunster!
MAXFUN MEETUP DAY IS TOMORROW!
Make a new friend (or several) at your local MaxFun meetup! These listener-hosted gatherings are happening all around the world tomorrow, March 28th at 7:00 PM local time. To find your local meetup, just check out this page. If your area isn’t represented, there’s still time to make it on to the list! Just pick a place, email email@example.com, and she’ll help you out.
BEN MEETS VANESSA!
The chicanery continues as The Greatest Generation’s Benjamin Ahr Harrison showed up at listener Vanessa’s home with a big ol’ bouquet of flowers and a heart full of GRATITUDE. We wish we could do the same for every single one of you, but until transporters and replicators are real, we have to settle with the members in these videos as an audience surrogate.
TUNE IN FOR A GENUINE MAXFUN EXTRAVAGANZA
This Friday, at 7:00 PM PDT, we’ll be ending the 2017 MaxFunDrive in a grand and festive fashion: with a livestream of some of our favorite LA-based MaxFun shows! Set yourself a calendar reminder, and check MaximumFun.org for details once Friday rolls around, because you won’t want to miss this!
THE TREK TO 20K!
Y:L@TA2:L@TGCW/OY is still up in the air! Help us get to 20,000 and upgrading members, and we’ll pull off the greatest podcast experiment of all time: a live podcast taping at The Grand Canyon. I’ve been there, and it delivers. Can you imagine how amazing it would be with PODCASTING? Help us reach our stretch goal, and elevate podcasting to the art form we always knew it could be by
