Always meant to ask - what is the music at the start of the earlier Cane and Rinse episodes/the recording you made to explain about the further push on Patreon?

I prefer the way it's done now, opening with a piece of music from the game, but it's got a lovely groove to it!

It's a specially commissioned piece by a guy called Ben Siddall from indie band The Lodger.

Finally got round to doubling my pledge - really hope you meet your target guys - I've been and avid listener and sometimes contributer for a while now and I just wanted to say I love Cane and rinse - I love hearing about my favourite hobby from like minded people. Good luck 🙂

PS I also brought a couple of t-shits which are very nice indeed 😉

In simple value-for-money terms: Taking all of the elements of Cane and Rinse together, I get at least double the entertainment hours as I've been getting out of my Netflix subscription in the last three months. Thus, you've earned twice that.
That Netflix comparison is a really interesting way of looking at it. The only thing I've watched on Netflix in the last 6 months has been Better Call Saul. Aside from the kids watching Peppa Pig and some other cartoon it's really not been used. Cane and Rinse has provided much better value for money for a good while now! I'd never thought to look at it like that, but it's a great point.

I'll try and increase my own monthly contribution when I get paid! More Cane and rinse can't be a bad thing!

I recently ended my subscription to a certain football magazine, and have just decided to put the extra funds towards something that these days gives me much more pleasure - proud to say I'm now a Cane and Rinse Patron.

I think this is the first time I've ever given voluntarily (charities excepted) to a cause where I was receiving the content for free anyway. I'd like to think that statement is a reflection of how exceptional Cane & Rinse is rather than my stinginess, although I suppose the two things aren't mutually exclusive. :)

Someone earlier in this thread mentioned about the gap Cane & Rinse would leave if it ever ceased, and I completely agree. There are 15-20 podcasts I listen to regularly, including output from the likes of the BBC and The Guardian, and yet if you stranded me on a desert island and told me I could only continue to have access to one of those, Cane and Rinse would be my choice. Even the very best of things come to an end at some point, but I sincerely hope that in this case it's not for a long time to come.

One of the things that really makes you stand out for me is how much value you place on the Cane and Rinse community, and the contributions of your listenership. It still gives me a thrill to hear one of my posts read out by those familiar voices (even if I do cringe a bit at how pretentious I sometimes sound!), and I'm staggered by the extent to which you engage here on the forums. I absolutely recognise that as you continue to grow, you'll no longer be able to include every single contribution on the podcast, or respond to every forum post (or at least for the sake of your sanities I hope you don't try to!), but please try not to lose that connection as it's one of the things which makes you so brilliant.

Some folks in this thread have commented about the podcast format. For my part, I think it works just grand as it is, and generally believe if it ain't broke don't fix it. If you do decide to innovate however, I have faith that whatever the output ends up looking like it'll be just as great as it is now.

I do have a couple of suggestions for possible one-off podcasts. I'm only mentioning them here because it seems as good a place as any, not out of some misplaced sense of entitlement just because I'm now a patron - feel free to completely ignore and I will take absolutely no offence! :)

One is a podcast where you take the listeners behind the scenes a bit, perhaps talk about what's involved in producing C & R, how you select games, the panel, episode order etc. I do appreciate though that you might not want to give away trade secrets...

The other suggestion is a podcast where we learn more about the individuals that make up the C & R team, how you met or came to be involved in the podcast, or about your backgrounds in the gaming industry (where relevant).

As I say, feel free to ignore, these are just suggestions for subjects I'd find interesting and I may well be in a minority of one!

Anyway, good luck and I hope the Patreon campaign continues to march on.
