Thanks For an Amazing Year!


For a lot of you reading, this will probably be the first real blog update you’ve read from the Labs. We’ve been working hard over the last year to bring quality content to our podcast listeners, and constantly improving our product. One of the most difficult aspects of podcasting is growing and maintaining your audience. In all reality, making the product is probably the easiest aspect of podcasting. However, if you have no listeners, what’s the point?

Today, I wanted to thank everyone who’s listened to us and supported us over the last amazing year of growth. In September of 2016, we launched “25 Years of Vampire: the Masquerade – a Retrospective.” The podcast is a passion project for Bob and me, and that’s how we wanted to approach creating the content. We’d been doing Nerd Words for about a year prior, and we’d never really found an audience. We’d been plugging along, grinding out podcasts, but we never really connected with a large group of people. A friend of ours suggested that we do a podcast specifically about Vampire: the Masquerade, and the rest is history.

In the previous year, we’ve recorded 42 episodes of our Vampire podcast. We’ve seen our listener base grow by literal thousands for both of our podcasts. We’ve attracted dozens of loyal Patreon backers, started our own online V:tM game online using Discord and met hundreds of awesome people. This podcast has changed our lives in the most positive way possible. The love and support we’ve received from all our listeners is staggering. We are fans, just like our listeners, and our aim has always been to provide entertainment and knowledge to a community we’ve been a part of since childhood. You’ve all made that possible for us. We’ve met amazing, smart, dedicated and passionate people from all over the world thanks to this podcast. We’ve connected with people from China, Norway, Brazil, Germany, Australia and right here in the United States. If we never did another thing in our lives, we’d be proud to say we’ve been able to touch so many different people from so many different cultures, all connected by their love of gaming, White Wolf products and Vampire: the Masquerade.

For as much as we’ve grown over the past year, we don’t intend to rest on our laurels. We want to see this podcast to continue to grow further beyond our expectations. We plan on growing beyond the constraints of podcasting with more multimedia projects, storytelling projects and even live events. With your help, we intend to make Utility Muffin Labs our full-time jobs so we can bring you more content with ever-increasing quality.

Thank you all for making this year and amazing one! We truly love you all and can’t begin to thank you enough for the love and support you’ve given us! Cheers to many more years of podcasting, Vampire: the Masquerade and gaming from us at Utility Muffin Labs. We’re Consistently Rated Adequate.
