I do the podcast for the love of it. When My wife and I had our first son, playing music in any kind of serious/semi serious way stopped. Which is why i started the podcast. It gave me a weird sense of a creative outlet (even though the creative people are the ones i talk to each episode) - which filled a huge gap i was missing from getting loud.
To do this, has expenses - not large ones, by any stretch - but websites and uploading stuff to various podcast hosting places costs money. Money i would have otherwise spent that go along with playing in a band.
So, where am i going with this? Good question... people have mentioned to me about 'you should get sponsors' or 'set up a patreon and get people to pay you for stuff' - both ideas make me cringe, one more than the other, BUT - i had an idea that i got from Dan Carlin (Hardcore History/Common Sense) - where at the end of each episode, he throws it out there - "if you liked what you heard, how about you send me $1" - which i do, very often, because its fantastic content and worth way more than that. Its kinda like Bandcamp. You can download heaps of stuff for free, or - if you're so inclined, and financially sound - pay for it, where you can name your price.
So that's where i'm at. Dig what i do? Send me $1 (or more if you're a bitcoin wizard, and you feel generous). It's just going to cover costs. Any profits i make at the end of the year will be donated to The Station (thestationltd.org). Don't stress if you don't wanna donate, i'll still keep doing this regardless, but if you do - know it's really appreciated.
