Get More Terrible, Thanks For Asking

Listener support makes our show possible.

(Note: Yes, the URL ^^ still says APM Studios, because tech reasons and other logistical things. But don't worry! Your support is going directly to us and our newly independent production. Thank you!)

We love our jobs. Every week, we get to tell stories. Not just sad stories, but human stories. Life stories. Stories for people who know that not everything happens for a reason, that the things that kill us don't always make us stronger, that sometimes, when life chucks a lemon in your face, the last thing you want to do is make lemonade.

As an independent production, your support will help us keep making the show you love and building this community.

I previously donated to TTFA through American Public Media. How do I cancel that donation now that TTFA is no longer part of APM?

If you previously donated to TTFA when we were part of APM, that donation no longer comes to us. You can contact American Public Media's Member Services team any time at contribute@americanpublicmedia.org (or call 800-562-8440 between 9 am – 4:30 pm CT) to make changes to your donation.

Why does the URL still say APM Studios? I thought you were independent now?

We are independent, don't worry! The URL will eventually be changed, but there are lots and lots of boring logistical things that need to happen behind the scenes first, and they take time. Rest assured, your financial support is now coming to us!
