WHAT IS THE ONCE & FUTURE PODCAST?
With over 6,500 subscribers and 200,000 visitors so far and a focus on science fiction and fantasy, our show revolves around genre authors and the people who love them. Some of our guests have included Charlaine Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse series), Lev Grossman (The Magicians), Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles), John Kovalic (Dork Tower, Munchkin), Keith Baker (Gloom), Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Calliope Reaper-Jones urban fantasy series), Matt Forbeck (The Marvel Encyclopedia, Dangerous Games), and a host of other writers and creators.
Our audience of listeners is equally spread out among men and women with a strong interest in science fiction, fantasy, paranormal romance, fandom and writing. We want to put your brand in front of them!
Ads do not necessarily have to be about books or author promotion. We here at The Once & Future Podcast believe in advertising products that are relevant to our nerdy little interests. We would rather speak passionately about the things we love in our sponsorships rather than run ads simply for the sake of running ads. Testimonial love holds a power other ads simply don’t.
Ads do not necessarily constitute an endorsement of any sort on the part of The Once and Future Podcast, although we do tend to seek out sponsorship among things we geek out about, looking to build a win-win scenario for both our advertisers and our listeners.
Intro & Outro
15-second Pre-roll: Prior to launching into the main content, the host will talk about the sponsor’s product or service for 15-seconds. This can be personal testimonial or can rely on bullet pointed copy provided by the sponsor.
15-second Out-roll: During the outro of the show, the host will thank our sponsor and talk about the sponsor’s product or service for 15-seconds. This can be personal testimonial or can rely on bullet pointed copy provided by the sponsor. This is the last call to action your listeners will hear during an episode, and has even greater potential to leave a lasting impression.
60-second Mid-roll: Typically inserted around the midway point of and episode. The host will talk about the sponsor’s product or service for 60-seconds this time, often sharing their personal story or geeky love of the product when applicable. We want sponsors we can be excited about!
