Hi friends!

It's now been more than three years since I started the Real Talk Radio podcast, and this community has grown to include over 500 supporters. That's 500+ people who want to live in a world filled with honest, judgement-free conversations, and who are willing to vote with their dollars to say, loudly and proudly, that women's voices deserve to be heard and that no topic should be off-limits due to fear or shame.

I am overjoyed (and super grateful!) for your generous support, and I can't wait to continue having and sharing the open and honest conversations that you have come to know and love.

Your financial support is what makes my work possible, and I can't thank you enough!

If you're new to Real Talk Radio or to this community (hi! welcome!), here's a quick look at what we do here:

At the heart of it, we tell the truth about our messy, beautiful, complicated, and imperfect lives. This podcast isn't trying to sell you anything or trying to get you to "fix" yourself - that's why there aren't any ads or sponsors. Instead, the show is 100% listener-supported, and you can join our support squad right here via Patreon and become a member of our warm and welcoming community.

Here's how it works:

The show will always be free and available to all listeners on iTunes and other podcast players.

If you love the show, if it makes you laugh, think, and feel less alone, if you believe in what we're doing here, then please consider this your invitation to join in and help fund future seasons by pledging $8+ per 8-episode season. 

Not only will your support help keep the show going and ensure that everyone involved gets paid (that includes me, my sound engineer Adam Day, plus all of the guests!), but you'll also get access to 40+ hours of bonus content and a bunch of other exclusive content, including: 

  • Bonus episodes with former guests
  • Access to my popular weekly email series, Notes of Grit & Grace, where I share my real life in real time
  • Our fun, casual monthly book club
  • The opportunity to grab tickets for Real Talk: Live events and retreats before anyone else
  • The chance to be featured in an upcoming outro
  • Frequent opportunities to help shape the future of the show
  • 24/7 access to the community feed for conversation with me and everyone else
  • …. and more!
In addition, 5% of the profits from each season get donated to a different social justice organization, so you can feel great about that aspect of your pledge as well.

So basically, you can think of your pledge as:

1) much-needed (and appreciated!) financial support to keep the show going, and to pay everyone who helps to create it
2) an all-access behind-the-scenes pass for tons of bonus content
3) a chance to shape the future of the show
4) inclusion in a wonderfully imperfect and supportive community :)

The next eight-episode season of the show will be released on December 1, 2018, and then you can expect six seasons in 2019, released on the first of the month every other month.

Thank you so much for joining my real talk revolution; your support means everything to me!

Real Talk Reflections
$16 or more per 8-episode season
Each month, you'll get a bonus episode called Real Talk Reflections, featuring co-host Julia Hanlon (formerly of the Running On Om podcast). This series is a monthly deep-dive into our lives - honest reflection on what went well over the past month, what didn’t, mistakes made, lessons learned, what our goals are for the coming month, etc. You'll also get a  curated monthly list of my best recommendations from around the internet - including the 3-5 best articles I read that month, my single favorite podcast episode from the many that I listen to, a quote I’ve been thinking about, the best recipe I made, and more. (Plus all the bonuses from the Support Squad tier, of course!)
Real Talk Roundtable (Google Hangouts!)
$25 or more per 8-episode season
Get access to exclusive, live, Google Hangouts where a small group of us can talk about our real lives in real time - laugh, share, do Q&A, and really get to know each other. There will be a series of three hangouts hosted 3ish weeks after the release of each podcast season, with each hangout at a different time of day to accommodate varying time zones/schedules. There's also a monthly prize drawing, where the winner receives a fun little snail mail package straight from me. And of course you'll also get all rewards and bonuses from the other two tiers as well!
Goals
589 of 600 patrons
When our community reaches 600 members, it means that every single person who works on this show will get paid.

That includes me and my sound engineer, Adam Day, as well as every single guest who comes onto the show. Because that’s my vision: for each of our guests to be paid for the time, energy, honesty, care, and emotional labor that they bring to these conversations.

The budget won’t be huge to start with, and will hopefully continue to grow over time, but higher rates will always be paid to our guests of color, as well as our queer and trans guests and others with traditionally marginalized identities who are generously spending a few hours of their time with me - a white, straight, cis woman - to share their lives and stories with our majority white audience. Being able to pay all of our guests has been a dream of mine for a while now, because as you’ve probably have heard me say before, I fully believe that where we spend our money is a real-time vote for the kind of world we want to live in. And if I want to live in a world where people get paid for the work they do, especially creative work, that means it’s up to me to create that model here at Real Talk Radio, even if it’s definitely not the norm in the podcast industry.
