I've been making this interview podcast since May 2013 and producing a lot of content I'm proud of. I've spoken to amazing people and this show has been featured in some of the world's most prominent music and general interest media outlets. I've had some great conversations with a long list of guests and, in many cases, they've made some real revelations about themselves and their work.

This entire time, I've been posting two episodes a week (mostly) for free and haven't made any money doing the show unless I can flip an interview into a modestly-paying print piece. I do get free pizza and gift certificates from a local bookstore/movie theatre, which is something. Sort of. I mean, it's good.

Look, working this way is not sustainable but I clearly have a need to do this and people keep agreeing or asking to be on the show. Also, every time I've tried to quit, I get a nice message from someone about a recent episode and I'm pulled back in.

I think this can be a pretty good show and a number of people agree. Sometimes I stumble but most times I don't. I seem to have a unique rapport with my guests, I do my research, and I listen well. There aren't too many shows like this one so, if you appreciate it, I hope you'll support it with whatever you can afford to pay on a monthly basis.

Goals
$218 of $400 per month
Thus far, I have only been able to generate revenue from this show by writing up interviews into modestly paying print pieces. But why can't the conversation we all hear just be the thing it is and be valued as something worth paying for? If I can't reach this goal, the show should stop and I should probably do some other things, right? Right.
