Adventure Rider Radio is creating a Motorcycle Podcast

Thanks for stopping by! We're Jim & Elizabeth and for the past four and half years we've been producing Adventure Rider Radio (ARR), a free downloadable motorcycle podcast. It's been somewhat surreal for us, as it's grown leaps and bounds with millions of downloads. We are so grateful to our listeners for showing up every Thursday and for spreading the word about ARR.

We are now the most popular motorcycle podcast out there (many, many thanks to all of you) and in the top 5% of all podcasts in the world.

We have had many truly inspiring guests on, sharing travel stories, tech info, riding skills, and more. We've expanded a bit, producing another free podcast, ARR RAW (adventureriderradio.com/raw), roundtable discussions between some of the top names in the industry. At times funny, laugh out loud commentary, and always great information about motorcycle travel. 

We absolutely love what we do, and we work really hard to bring the best quality moto travel podcasts to our listeners. It's quickly evolved in to a full time gig for the two of us, researching, editing and producing the show from just a thought right on through to when it airs. Yep, it's just the two of us, wearing many hats.

Jim:
- presenter
- research
- interviews
- audio production
- website

Elizabeth:
- producer
- research
- website

And of course, it doesn't come without expense. The costs for production include:
- internet fees
- website costs
- podcast hosting fees
- software
- recording equipment
- computers
and more, it all adds up. Plus, we have to eat, too!

We have been fortunate to have some great sponsors on ARR, and make a small living off the podcast ads, but it's not enough to pay the bills, keep up with all the expenses and to purchase the necessary equipment to produce the show (we are still saving for a new computer that is adequate for audio production, as the ones we use are several years old!). Producing ARR is simply not sustainable for us without the support of our listeners, and we really appreciate all who have contributed so far.

And wouldn't it be great if we could get enough listener support that we don't have to worry about advertisers? We could put the time that we put in to getting and maintaining advertisers in to producing the show instead.

Ultimate goal: Ad free, listener supported show.

If you are able to help out even just a little, it means we can keep improving, growing and producing Adventure Rider Radio and ARR RAW. 

Thanks so much & safe travels,
Jim & Elizabeth

Adventure Rider Radio is available to our listeners for free. Wouldn't it be great if we could bring that show to you ad free? If we didn't have to put time in to advertiser support we'd have more time to put in to bringing you great content.

If you can even donate what you would spend on a coffee and donut every month ($5), with just 700 regular monthly supporters we can go ad free.

We've already been able to cut back one ad a month with the support we get now, so please consider joining your fellow listeners.

For the same price as a bucket of popcorn at the theatre or a couple bags of potato chips (crisps), you get great entertainment, that you can listen to anywhere, anytime!

Thanks so much for supporting your show!
