WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
Since it first opened its doors in 2019, Cold Open Stories has been a love-letter to short and weird fiction that has the power to quickly throw us into new worlds.
As large fans of Warhammer 40,000 our team began by producing unofficial content, including 10 full-cast audio dramas and 150+ stories which have received 30,000+ reads, and 200,000+ listens, and charted in the global top-100 podcasts for 3 years. This has all be offered free, and without any restrictions, with the average cost of labour and talent for an audio drama approximating $7,900.
As we move into original content, our goal is to transition into a model that can support and reward new initiatives.
