About Chris Jensen and Annie Jones

From the Front Porch is a weekly podcast about books, small business, and life in the South. It's hosted by Chris Jensen, a PhD candidate at Florida State University, and Annie Jones, owner of the Bookshelf, an independent bookstore in Thomasville, GA. 

We started this campaign because we want to make better content for you. There are so many of you listening now, and we're still recording our show with cheap-ish equipment next to a public bathroom. The kind support we receive from you can enable us to upgrade some of our setup and start making a quality-sounding podcast that's ultimately better for you, our loyal listeners.

We also want to be able to justify the amount of time we spend on From the Front Porch week to week. It's so much fun for us to make, and we love that you enjoy what we do, but we also do it totally for free. It's always been free and it will always be free, and just listening means the world to us. But if you can spare a couple dollars a month to help us improve the show and pay our bills, we'd like to reward you for your generosity.
