Both Denny and Drew are basically hippies. No surprise with Denny, but Drew is a stealth hippy. What does that mean? It means we want to give back to the community and do it in the name of our listeners. So we're pledging a portion of the podcast's proceeds every year to a charity of the listeners' choice. Let's get started early with the discussion of where to send our funds for 2016 in the comments below and we'll set up a vote in a little bit. Where does the money come from? Some of it will come from our sponsors and some directly from you! Pledge to our Patreon fund here. The money you pledge goes to help us keep the podcast running and our charity efforts! Comment away!
