You're starting out in the media industry and want to find out where the opportunities are through our weekly installments. That's neat.

Support us for less than a £1 an episode - it's less than you tip at your local independent coffee house, non?
  • A HUGE thank you, from us to you

You're on the ladder with a reputable publisher or hot new start-up that's burning through capital. But a mortgage seems a long way off and nothing seems particularly certain in this world.

So why not spend a little of that disposable income on something you can rely on: this podcast.

We've been going for over fifteen years. And it's people like you that are keeping it going.
  • A MASSIVE thank you... and some stability in your life

The Producer

YOU'VE MADE IT. A permanent contract, or just enough regular work you've seriously started thinking about a pension.

WHOA THERE. Not so fast. Don't forget about who's helped open those doors. Given you those talking points for many an awkaward Zoom call with a commissioner.

US. That's who. So bung us the price of a lime and soda in Soho. Cheers.

  • THE GREATEST thank you (and one less lime & soda)



About The Media Podcast

More than 1.5 million people in 180 countries now fund our fearless, independent journalism. Will you support us? This vital support means we can remain independent of shareholders or a billionaire owner- No wait, that's the Guardian's pitch. Our mistake.

Please help us to maintain The Media Podcast as the most popular, independent voice of the UK media industries, as we enter our third decade.

We were here before Bake Off. Before Serial. Before Netflix. Over the years some things never change: the end of the BBC through a thousand cuts; the death of linear television; the joy of new ideas and fresh thinking, of consolidation and recessions, paywalls and... yes, the saviour of voluntary subscriptions.

Pay what you can, based on your role in our industry. And keep us going long into the future.
