The First Podcast is sponsored by several organizations. They are catalogued here for informative purposes, and also so that listeners who did not catch certain coupon codes or URLs can refresh themselves.

History Edit

The First Podcast was initially not a sponsored program, relying exclusively on Patreon support. There was also no merch store.

The show was first sponsored by Mockberg, a fashion watch company, in mid-late 2018. The hosts did a few ad reads at first, making an attempt to insert them organically into the episodes. However, this was an era in which the hosts did not take the show, and their ability to earn money from it, very seriously. Thus, they would often neglect to do said ad reads for some time.

In February 2019, Lars and Joe decided to take the sponsorships much more seriously, landing Mint Mobile and NordVPN almost back to back. They are now diligently included in every episode.

Different sponsorships get phased in and out as experiments to determine if they are lucrative (and if so, how lucrative they are). Unless otherwise noted, all sponsorships are still active, whether or not the hosts actively plug them on air.

As a joke, Lars and Joe will also often try to insert an "ad read" to the aftershow, hangouts, and Discord chats.

Sponsors Edit

"Active" sponsors (as in, sponsors the show currently regularly plugs) have their name in bold. If not crossed out, "inactive" sponsor links and coupon codes still work either way.
