Goals
$11 of $50 per month
At $50/month, James and Charlie can afford the equipment needed to make their "home studio" more than a piece of foam taped to a pizza box (that's not a joke, sadly).  It also means they can afford things like cameras to start producing video content that supplements the podcast.  It also also means they can feel less guilty about spending all this time on not-their-PhD-research.
