Origin Story is a documentary by comedian and podcast host Kulap Vilaysack of Earwolf's "Who Charted?" It's an international road trip from Los Angeles to Minnesota to Laos, where Kulap's story began. It's a deeply personal but universal story about family secrets, alienation and personal responsibility.

New and Improved Perks!

With only 9 days left in our film's campaign, we wanted to announce some important updates:

New Perks:

Lunch in Los Angeles with Kulap Vilaysack and June Diane Raphael- For a donation of $1,000, Kulap and June will sit down with you and one guest at an LA eatery to share a delightful meal (airfare, lodging and transportation not included). 

Also for $1,000, enjoy a full-day (8-hour) career consultation with Earwolf/Midroll Founder and Chairman Jeff Ullrich. Get his expert advice on your business, career and/or the field of pro podcasting. Meet in LA, or Jeff is willing to fly to you, provided you're located no further than Chicago/Seattle/St. Louis/Houston. Otherwise, you'll meet over Skype.

Lowered $ on Premium Perks:

The "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" half-day set visit for you and two friends is now $5,000 instead of $7,500. Come by during a shoot (airfare, transportation and lodging not included) and meet the cast working that day, enjoy lunch and snap photos.

Also down from $7,500 to $5,000 is the appearance on IFC's "Comedy Bang! Bang!" Meet Host Scott Aukerman, take photos with him on the CBB couch and deliver a line on camera!

Maybe you want to sit in on a session of Earwolf's "How Did This Get Made?" and get 2 tickets to a live show and some podcast swag? It's now available for a $3,000 donation. The recording will be in Hollywood (airfare, transportation and lodging not included). 

*All of the above perks also include website and Who Charted? shout-outs, a digital download and special thank-you credit in the film, and our undying gratitude.

Rest assured that this is the last time these perks will be changed; now's the time to claim what you like of the limited supply.

Thanks for your support thus far, and into the final stretch!
