I am the host of the literary radio show and podcast Between The Covers.  I've been podcasting for the past seven years, interviewing a wide variety of writers such as George Saunders, Ursula K. Le Guin, Valeria Luiselli,  Mary Ruefle, Claudia Rankine, Celeste Ng, Neal Stephenson, David Mitchell, Tyehimba Jess and Maggie Nelson.   It's a labor of love, not something I get paid for, and I am a one-man band, scheduling the interviews, conducting them, editing the audio, uploading the files and promoting the shows.  About 30 hours of work per episode, with 20 to 24 episodes total each year.  Your support helps make this an sustainable effort for me.

Vera & Linus out-of-print collectable (domestic)
$2 or more per Podcast Episode 72 patrons
Co-written by Jesse Ball & Thordis Björnsdottir, this out-of-print collectable is available for new supporters in the U.S. who give $2 or more per episode (& who in good faith aim to remain supporters for at least 1 year)  Publisher’s Weekly says of Vera & Linus: "The light touch & often archaic feel of the prose owes as much to Kafka as to classic fairy tales...most will find it hard not to remember a time when the world was filled with this kind of fearful mystery & wonder." 
Ursula Le Guin:Conversations on Writing
$2 or more per Podcast Episode 2 patrons
A signed copy (by me) of Ursula K. Le Guin: Conversations on Writing (U.S. residents only)  

“An enlightening conversation about the writing process. Both authors  adopt the tone of artisans discussing their craft, and each’s delight at  debating with a like-minded professional is evident throughout. . . [Le  Guin’s] rapport with Naimon results in an exchange that is both  informative and charming.”--Publisher's Weekly

Goals
$367 of $500 per Podcast Episode
Currently i'm a one-man band.  I do all the scheduling, the audio editing, the web updates and the publicity, on top of the preparation for the interviews themselves  At this level I'd be able to start thinking outside the box.  I could consider bringing in some help to help me do these things better, and subsequently to be able to devote my time more directly to what I love, the conversations
