How to commission a new Spoil Me! series

So, you’ve just finished reading/watching something amazing and you NEED someone else to experience it. Well, depending on your circumstances, you have a couple of options:

    • If you have the cash to commission the whole series upfront, you can email me at unspoiledpodcast@gmail.com and I can bypass the system on my end to add you to the calendar. You’ll pay a bulk sum to me via PayPal, and boom, we’re done.

    • If you’re going to be relying on the UNspoiled! Community to help you fund it, you will need to leave a comment here on this page with the series title. I will add your suggestion to the poll, and whatever has the most support behind it will be the next thing added to the docket.


“But why a poll? Why can’t I just start whatever series I want?”

The reasoning behind this is that I’ve had several titles lapse due to the original commissioner being unable to keep up, and other listeners being unwilling to chip in. I’ve had to cancel multiple series after a couple months of no activity because I can’t keep a story straight in my head when my coverage is spaced so far apart. It’s always a huge bummer to get invested in a series and never finish, and making sure a series has backing before starting helps to mitigate that.

If you’re interested in one of the titles below (and by “interested” I mean you are willing to put some of your own money towards commissions), please vote in the poll and let me know! I have limited voting to 3 titles per person, so be sure to prioritize.

Which Series will YOU Help Commission?
  • Russian Doll
  • Jane The Virgin
  • My Mad Fat Diary
  • The Boys
  • An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
  • Red Rising by Pierce Brown
  • Super Powereds by Drew Hayes

“But Natasha, when will you have room to add a new title? It’s been months and you’re still doing the same ones!”

Yeah, that’s part of the reason that I have a rule about how long can go between episodes (three months is the maximum allowed time). It’s not just that I have trouble keeping track of plot and character names, but also because I want the turnover to be at a reasonable pace so that I’m not covering the same 3-book series for 4 years. You can check the spreadsheet to see what titles are nearing their finales, and if you’re really wanting to speed things up and you have the spare cash, you can even commission an episode. Commissioning an episode of something that’s already being covered on Spoil Me! is easy: just go here, choose the type of media (book/TV/movie), and select the correct title from the dropdown menu.

Thanks a ton for checking out how it works, and I hope to see you in the Crowdcast chat!

    Im hoping to get the series Super Powered by Drew Hayes commissioned, i dont have the money myself but it is an absolute work of art. The audiobook is so amazing it deserves the highest awards (im not exaggerating is the slightest) i would and will encourage any reader to read this series, which is four books in total and completed. The characters are all so well rounded, the story feels real, the plot is non stop, you will laugh, you will cry, you will get mad, you will feel things few books can make you feel and it is worth every moment.

      If you’d like to vote for your own title suggestion, it’s now available on the poll! You can also share this link with people who might commission episodes so that they can vote.

    I made an error and I am sorry. I think my vote went through several times due to a login error. It was unintentional and I apologize.

      I kept getting a message saying I wasn’t logged in and my votes weren’t going though, but apparently I was, and they were. So there should be one vote for An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, not five!
