We've told you before that producing the Tolkien Road over the last 4 years and 150+ episodes has been a labor of love, and we've been delighted to learn how many of you BINGE-LISTEN to our humble lil' podcast. But here's the truth: life gets in the way.
Our goal has always been to produce this podcast weekly, or even more often if possible. However, in order to do that, we've got to face the financial realities of what that means for us. Right now, our time is limited, and unfortunately more by dollars and cents than by Tolkien studies. So we thought we'd go to you guys, our faithful listeners, and ask for your help.
Here's the thing: if just a small percentage of our listenership gave us $1 per episode, we'd be able to crank out high-quality new episodes faster than you could listen to them. If we were to produce 1 episode per week, that would be $4 per month most months. Is a weekly episode worth that much to you?
What about $5 per episode? For some $20 per month is a whole lot, but for others, it's a small price to pay for something you really love.
