Podcast Crowdfunder

With these podcasts I try (or have to try) to keep the direct costs as low as possible and I generally keep it down to the following

  1. Internet bill
  2. A decent new set of headphones with microphone every so often
  3. An mp3 voice recorder for out and about recordings
  4. Phone calls when it is not possible to record over skype
  5. And this is the biggest one – Internet hosting for all the episodes

That said, I am basically self-employed and all time spent on the podcasts is time I could otherwise spend working, and therefore does actually cost me. A basic rule is that if you hear an hour of podcast, between finding guests and agreeing what/how/when we are going to do the podcast, research, recording, editing, uploading, fixing glitches, promoting and blog posts, that one hour of audio has taken 7 or 8 hours to put together. A day’s work if you like.

This small appeal for funding is not to recover the costs of time I could have been working, I do enjoy doing these after all. However, it would be a great help if we could at least cover the costs of the internet hosting, which is about £130 pounds a year.

If you feel able to give something, anything is much appreciated.
