As you've hopefully read by now, Sounder at Heart, Nos Audietis and Ride of the Valkyries are formally combining forces to transition to a reader-supported model.
The TL;DR of that previous communication is that we're going to need support from people like you to make this work and we've rolled out a handful of ways you can do that. You can read about our various membership tiers here (use the password “Sounders74” to access the site).
As a thank you to our most loyal readers, we're offering discount options on our two core plans that will be available until we complete our transition on Aug. 21. After that, the prices will be the same for everyone. (Note: If you’re already a paid subscriber on Substack, please don’t try to use these discount codes as you’re already going to be grand-fathered into the new platform and this could complicate the billing process.)
If you'd like to sign up for one of our Founder plans, we're offering you the chance to sign up for $50 for the first year. That's discounted from $74 and will get you access to all our content, an invitation to our new Discord server and discounts on merchandise as well as live-event tickets. Follow this link.
If you're interested in a higher level of support, we're offering the Advocate plan for $150. That's discounted from the regular price of $206 and will get you everything that comes with the Founder plan plus a complimentary ticket to one non-YachtCon live event per year and a forum on our Discord server where you're invited to help shape our coverage. As an added incentive, we're also allowing anyone who uses this code to lock in this pricing for as long as they remain subscribers. Follow this link to access that discount.
In addition to those discounted offers, we've also created two new membership tiers on either side of these other plans. Our Backer plan is designed more for users on a budget, while our Benefactor plan is designed for those of you who want to show an even bigger level of support.
Thanks for being a subscriber and hopefully you'll enjoy taking this new journey with us.
