Support The Sound of Young America & With The 2010 MaxFunDrive

Recently I posted about MaxFunCon, a gathering of creative people who wish to be more awesome, put on by the comedy podcast mini-nation that is

Last week Jesse Thorn, the leading voice of MaxFun, kicked off their big annual fundraiser the 2010 MaxFunDrive. It’s two weeks of gentle pleadings for support, a steadily rising fundm-ometer, podcasts funny as per usual, and it culminates in an 8-hour marathon comedy show / podcast at a Meltdown Comics in L.A.. A donation page is standing by.

There are both the usual and unusual donation thank you gifts, including a TSOYA live DVD, a personal phone call from Jesse, and free admission to next year’s MaxFunCon.

MaxFun podcast products include The Sound of Young America (which is also heard on public radio stations across the country), Jordan, Jesse, Go!, Stop Podcasting Yourself, the Kasper Hauser Podcast, and several others. They are all available on iTunes. These are what you’ support by donating.

Here’s a sample of Jesse & TSOYA in action, interviewing metallic legend Ian Fraser Leman Kilmister (aka Lemmy) at SXSW this year.
