Talk the Talk is a weekly show about what's going on in linguistics, the science of language, with linguists Daniel Midgley and Hedvig Skirgård and smart person Ben Ainslie. By supporting Daniel, Ben, and Hedvig, 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.

Quick note: When you sign up, we'll ask for a mailing address, but that's just so we can send you special stickers, postcards, and other stuff, which we might do occasionally. Just leave that blank if you don't want us to send you things.

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