Support the Podcast

The New Disruptors is supported by listeners—like you! The show came back into existence due to interest from listeners and a successful crowdfunding campaign to fund 12 episodes from August 2018 to July 2019. With more resources, I can make more episodes in that period and continue on after a year! (Your moral support and listenership is just as welcome.)

You can contribute towards the podcast’s production on a yearly or monthly basis. At higher tiers, you’ll receive a variety of rewards, listed below.

I wanted to call out the private discussion forum that Insider and Disruptor supporters gain access to. This will be a place where we can talk about issues raised in the podcast and more generally about being an independent creator. I’ll invite guests of the podcast and other people with experience to join, and I’ll participate actively.

Yearly Patrons

You can pay via this site using a credit card or PayPal. The yearly support levels are:

  • Supporter ($10): You get my heartfelt thanks and your support moves the podcast towards more episodes!

  • Insider ($25): You receive access to early or exclusive audio and video and invitations to live events and a private Discord discussion forum.

  • Disruptor ($100): You’re thanked by name on an episode and you receive an exclusive enamel pin of the logo, as well as Insider benefits.

Monthly Patrons

I manage monthly contributions via Patreon with levels that correspond to the three tiers above. You can cancel your contribution at any time—there’s no commitment.

Buy a T-Shirt!

While supplies last, I still have T-shirts printed in a 2014 run that I kept neatly preserved. The cost of the shirts was paid years ago, so your purchase goes entirely towards helping to support the production of the show. Find out what size are available and place an order on the T-shirt page.

What Funds Provide

You contribute towards the costs of audio editing, hosting, travel, recording hardware, and live venue rental, as well as helping to cover the substantial amount of time I devote to prep, travel, interviews, and producing the show.

With the new run, I want to interview more people face to face, instead of remotely, and have live events in Seattle and elsewhere.
