The name 'Faustian Nonsense' references the concept of a Faustian bargain, which traditionally describes a deal made with the devil (also known as "Satan", "Mephistopheles", or "Jeff Bezos") typically at the cost of one's immortal soul. Our founders met and bonded over the absurdity of contract law, creative industries, and how the current intersection of both badly hurts creators hoping to take their creations to market.
Naturally, that has led people to express concern about the ethical standing of our company and the media we produce. For all anyone knows, we're running around cavorting with all sorts of unsavory sorts, stealing candy from babies, and twirling the ends of our waxed pencil moustaches.
And for the most part, we are!
WHO WE ARE TO PODCAST CREATORS
Outside of living our evil aesthetic clichés to their fullest, we hope to create a network that not only cultivates quality, but a community of support that encourages the growth of creators + their creations! Your work is spectacular, creators. And we believe you shouldn't have to sacrifice your rights to it, be beholden to insane profit cut margins, or bound to contracts that prevent you from expanding your portfolio and trying new things. We want FN to be the launchpad for indie works we'd be proud to put our label on. We want you to fully realize that dream you have in your head with the help of a full production crew. Most importantly, we want to help you turn this from a hobby into a full time job. Whether you decide to be a life-long creator for the FN network, or if you lean on us like an incubator, we're here to support you.
Your success is our success, too!
WHO WE ARE TO PODCAST LISTENERS
We aim to bring listeners only the most grandiose, soul-selling-tempting pieces of media. All the media published through FN network must meet our rigorous quality control requirements, so you can rest assured that anything you choose to listen to will be truly spectacular. (See more about our quality standards below!) We also guarantee to keep sensitivity, diversity, and vast scores of representation as a given part of any program you listen to. Further, you can trust that we're doing right by the creators that sign on with us. There's nothing worse than finding out one of your favorite pieces of media is owned and controlled by a company that treats its creators poorly.
So yes, we're here to steal your soul, eat all the food in your fridge, and leave strange offerings of teeth with no discernable origin. And sure, we twirl our moustaches menacingly, and we've practiced our evil laughs in the mirror for hours. And okay, okay, we started as a small group of friends with passion for indie content and extremely loud opinions on fair treatment within the workplace. We do it all for the sake of creating an ethical, thriving, hub of creativity and creators.
But we do have some boundaries.
We would like to make abundantly clear: we would never, ever recommend making a deal with Jeff Bezos.
Head of Operations
With a background in forensic science and criminal law, Jaci is certainly qualified to help you cover up that murder you don't like talking about. Whether or not you trust her to do so is entirely up to you. Experts recommend approaching with both hands visible.
Amelia is a rebounding ethicist, and a recovering attorney best known for passionately diving into projects, never to be seen again. Experts advise to stay outside of a two meter radius unless you are fully prepared to be dragged beyond the event horizon into her latest creative endeavor.
