UPDATE!! A Mini-Podathon For Kristine


Nobody wants to get the big C, but here we are again. Kristine Levine is a fan favorite of our little community, and she’s a self described financial train wreck. It’s an indictment of American health care that if/when we get sick we can face financial disaster.

When Andy Andrist was diagnosed we felt compelled to try to help and the only idea we had was a marathon live-streamed we dubbed podathon. When people heard about Kristine’s diagnosis it was suggested we do it again. We don’t want to get in the habit of doing this every time someone gets sick, but Kristine means so much to so many of us, we feel like we need to do something.

If you want to help NOW, there is a Go Fund Me page that was set up by her friend Kat, If she reaches her goal before we get organized we won’t have to do a 12 hour pod, so pitch in and spare us another dreadfully bad show.

If not, we will be doing a 12-hour show on Saturday, August 20th, 2022 starting at 8:00am Eastern time zone, for the benefit of our friends in the UK. YOU CAN HELP make this show a little less insufferable by donating 15 minutes of your time to make an appearance, tell a joke, sing a song or just rant about how the big C suck and how much you love Kristine.

The point here is to get the Go Fund Me to its goal and beyond. Please help us help Kristine. I can’t promise that this will be the last time we ask you to help a friend but this is the last one these will ever do and 15 minutes of your time can be a really big. help. It’s a Sunday! You were probably just going to waste 15 minutes on social media at some point anyway, why not use it for a good cause?
