The Off-Nominal Discord

Welcome to the Off-Nominal Discord! We’re a friendly and welcoming group of people excited about spaceflight and exploration.

This is a shared space for supporters of the WeMartians Podcast, Main Engine Cut Off, and the eponymous podcast of this here community. It’s hosted by Jake and Anthony. We’re both super excited to have you here and thankful for your support.

What’s Discord?

Discord is a text-based group chat application. It’s kind of like new-age IRC, and very similar to Slack if you’ve ever used that. You can access it from a browser, through a dedicated desktop application for Mac and Windows, or through a mobile app on Android or iOS.

Simply make an account, connect it to your Patreon account, and you will automatically be added to the Off-Nominal server. Follow this guide if you need more help!

Discord also has voice chats, which we occasionally use for live recordings or for launch event hangouts.
