Talk the Talk is a weekly show about what's going on in linguistics, the science of language, with linguist Daniel Midgley, and smart people Ben Ainslie and Kylie Sturgess. By supporting Daniel, Ben, and Kylie, you'll be helping us promote good science, and stretch to some really great and interesting projects we'd like to do.

Best of all, when you support Talk the Talk, you're supporting independent community radio. Talk the Talk donates a percentage of the proceeds to RTRFM, a community radio station that depends on donations for support. Without RTRFM, Talk the Talk wouldn't be what it is today, and we wouldn't be doing much talking at all. So you won't just be supporting Talk the Talk; you'll be supporting a strong independent voice for local issues, and a promoter of great Perth music.

Thanks for becoming a patron, and we hope you enjoy what we're doing.

Goals
$215 of $250 per month
Transcripts for past shows

Every new episode gets its own transcript. But when we make this goal, we can start going back through the archives, and make transcripts for our previous episodes. That means that our shows can still be enjoyed by people who can't hear them, or who would rather read them. It also means they'll be searchable. Access matters! We hope you agree.
