What will my money be spent on?
There is a lot that goes in to making this podcast a reality. There is a lot of outreach, writing, and audio production time for each episode. Your support will go to the following:
- Increasing the sound quality and production value in each episode. This may come from outsourcing some of the work to professional sound engineers or adding additional hardware.
- Developing additional show segments that provide even more useful content for your gaming career.
- Expanding the reach of this podcast so more people can be equipped to take their careers to the next level.
NOTE ON FREQUENCY AND SUPPORT SCHEDULE
TL:DR Version: 2-5 (on 5 week months) episodes per month, charged per episode
This show is scheduled Bi-Weekly but in all honestly I usually release shows Weekly. This is because I have SO many awesome conversations with people I often have 4-6 shows in the queue waiting to release. I don't like you or my guests having to wait that long to benefit from the interviews.
I officially moved to the bi-weekly schedule to prevent burn out (for me), and to set good expectations for listeners.
I have switched from the monthly support to per episode for a couple of reasons. The main reason is that I don't think it's fair to support a podcast when I'm not making consistent content. There was a time that I took a hiatus for about 6 months and I really felt like I was letting you, my patrons, down during this period. I intend for the bi-weekly schedule to be the overall average for the podcast release schedule.
All that being said- I will not release an episode more than once a week. I release long form content, and it would really be hard to digest shows release any more frequently.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
