Hi, I'm David Cot and I'm the host of The History of Spain Podcast, a biweekly podcast on the history of my motherland, following a chronological order. My aim is to make the history of Spain accessible for an English-speaking audience, and doing so with a deep research requires years and countless hours of work and passion. I got the passion to tell to as many English-speakers as possible the history of my motherland, but the time required to produce episodes and building the community makes monetization a must. That's why I decided to start a Patreon, to keep the podcast up and running.

With Patreon, you can support the podcast each month starting from $1. Any help is welcomed! With the $1 tier you already get a tweet with a personalized message, access to Patreon posts and a very sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart. But if you add two more dollars, you will get access to the ad-free, one-week early access feed! There are more juicy tiers: if you become a Sargento Mayor you will get a 11oz mug of the podcast; if you prefer a T-Shirt, the $30 Maestre de Campo is for you. If are crazy about the podcast, there are even limited $50 and $100 tiers, with very interesting and more exclusive perks.

There are actually more T-Shirts, all with a message on the back. Check out thehistoryofspain.com/store for more

In any case, I can announce that I won't produce exclusive episodes for patrons, since the objective is to make the podcast chronological and to make it accessible to as much people as possible. However, if you are not interested in becoming a recurring patron, you can go to the website of the podcast and make a one-time donation, or buy stuff from the store. There is great stuff: Spanish history books, cookbooks, travel guides, books and material to learn Spanish, or merchandising in the near future. Through these channels, plus ads, I hope to keep making the podcast for everyone interested in the history of Spain!

My most sincere thanks for your interest in supporting the show!
