I made a Patreon account. If anyone enjoys the podcast and wouldn’t mind contributing $1 an episode or so, that would be pretty great. Funds will go toward getting some new equipment, paying for some professional help on audio production and editing, website development, and some video work I have in mind relating to the podcast episodes. If by some miracle I get an unexpected number of people to contribute, it will allow me to take some occasional unpaid time off from my day job to get episodes out more frequently.
Anyone who contributes $1 an episode (so probably $1 every 2-3 months) will get a weekly newsletter with detailed stories and information about the current podcast topic, and with answers to your questions. If anyone can spare more than $1 an episode, I’ll start coming up with better rewards. There are going to be t-shirts and stuff soon, so I’ll think of something good.
