You may be wondering why most of my back catalog is only available on Stitcher Premium. Last year, the network I used to be on folded, and I was fortunate to be picked up the network Midroll, which will provide ads for my show. Midroll also owns the app Stitcher, and part of my deal with them is that any episode older than 6 months will be available exclusively on Stitcher Premium -- and every episode on Stitcher Premium will be ad-free. This gives me the financial ability to continue to create and produce the show because once I switched to Midroll, the previous ads from my old network either didn't generate profits anymore or disappeared from the episodes. And people discovering my back catalog has been an important part of my income.
10 extra episodes from my back catalog will also be available on all platforms, and you can get the rest on Stitcher Premium for just $5 a month, and you can pay month-to-month. If you sign up at https://www.stitcher.com/premium and use the promo code “Imaginary,” the first 30 days is a free trial. Plus, the revenue I get from those subscriptions will help make this podcast financially sustainable.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
In part two of our mini series on sidekicks, we look at two characters that have travelled in parallel since they came out of the same radio station in the 1930s – Tonto and Kato. There wasn’t anything authentically Native American or Asian about these sidekicks, but that didn’t matter to the audiences who enjoyed their team-ups with The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet. Embodying Tonto and Kato was a lot more challenging for the actors Jay Silverheels and Bruce Lee, who struggled to find humanity within the stereotypes and respect behind the scenes.
