Flash Forward is 100% independent, I don’t have a network or a publication footing the bill here or promoting the show. The only way I can continue to do this work thanks to the support of listeners! Consider this podcast extremely artisanal.
If you’ve ever enjoyed the podcast, please consider chipping in to keep it going. Here are a few ways to do that:
You can become an ongoing Patron, or just toss a few bucks my way when you can. It all helps! Here are a few ways to support the show:
Patreon is a bit like Kickstarter, except instead of donating a single chunk of money to a single project, you give a little bit of money for each thing a person creates. So you can pledge to give $1, $2, $5, $10 (you get the idea) each episode. And in return you get all kinds of bonus stuff: access to a fan newsletter, exclusive content, a Bonus Podcast, a book club, a goody bag, even the chance to have your voice appear in the show. Over at Patreon I explain how I’ll use the money, and all that. It’s a great way to give!
Donate via DonorBox. If you don’t have the funds to donate monthly, or you just want to throw a chunk of money at me RIGHT NOW, you can do that too! Just put some info in below!
