Far Beyond the Stars – Launch Team Guide


Background
share close

Hello friends! Thank you so much for helping to get the word out about Far Beyond the Stars – our fourth podcast under the Fantastic Worlds Productions umbrella! We started with The Fantastic Worlds Podcast in August 2018, launched The Greatest Show on Earth in May of last year, Fairy Tale Fix that September, and now finally our long awaited Starfinder show.

Far Beyond the Stars is the culmination of three years of growth, learning, and a lot of hard work. If we had to stop everything tomorrow there is no doubt in our minds that it was worth every second and every dollar we put into it – not only for the many hours of enjoyment we’ve had playing these games, but also for the bonds of friendship we have built with each other, and with all of you. Receiving messages from people whom our storytelling has helped during a dark time in their lives, or started/revitalized their interest in playing these games, or who said we provided a place where they felt they could better define themselves or their sexuality in safety and community, has been the greatest joy, privilege, and highlight of these years. 

If you are looking at this guide, you are a key part in helping with our success. You could be a friend or family member who may/or may not watch our shows, and wants to help, or you could be one of our fantastic listeners, the wonderful friends we have made on the way. Regardless, if you are on this page, thank you for your friendship and your support.

Below is a list of steps you can do to help get the show launched into the podcastverse. There is no particular order to any of these, all of these steps help, but the more you do the better. 

Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you have questions, we will support you any way we can. You can also reach out to Dustin directly, he is available for tech support all day.
