Hey,
First and foremost, thanks. If you have made it this far then you kinda like listening to the Welsh guy going on for a half hour or so each week about some of the most obscure and unfamiliar crimes that have taken place in the UK. That means the world - it really does, your support and interest is great and keeps me doing what I do.

I started The True Crime Enthusiast because True Crime has always been my chosen genre of interest, and I wanted to put out what I as a listener would be interested most in hearing. There are so many people who are forgotten and cases that are unheard of - and I don't believe any one case is more important to highlight than another - that's why I choose the cases I cover. It takes dedication, willingness to research and commitment - and I do have all of that.

I have never, and will never, aim to use the show to make a profit. It is solely for myself about making forgotten names remembered again - but this does take time, research, production and patience. But I want to make the show better - I always believe that it can be better - and this can be done in a few ways. Better research, production and editing means a better show for people to hear and get involved with - and who knows, it may just spur and inspire someone on to go out and do the same kind of thing. Hopefully, this is where you guys come in.

There are a variety of ways that you can help me make TTCE a better show. It can be as simple as a share on social media, or a nice 5* review on iTunes (I hope anyway!), or a suggestion for a case - even offering knowledge sharing about something technical. All will be greatly appreciated. Or if you do appreciate the work that I do - which I won't lie, is time consuming but totally worthwhile - and it's within your means, then maybe a small financial contribution to help the show grow - I wouldn't expect this without offering some kind of reward for yourselves, and if you have a look at the tiers I have created, then you have an idea of what your contributions will bring back around. It would be very much appreciated - it would go into what I have said above. Better equipment and funds for research - because better research, books and access to documents/newspaper archives/FOI Requests etc - all means better coverage of cases and a few more names remembered, making a better show all around - and I would strive to ensure that the improved quality was always apparent.

And lastly, I must stress that The True Crime Enthusiast will always be available to listen for free - that won't change. I just want to be able to deliver more, and hopefully, that's where you guys come in.

Many thanks

This will help me update recording equipment, software, and editing/mixing equipment, and helps go towards research for cases featured on the show(newspaper archives, books etc).
