Back in December, I launched a Patreon campaign for Toronto Mike'd. Toronto Mike'd, the podcast I started four years ago, is 185 episodes deep, and has incurred a number of expenses over the years. This Patreon campaign is one way of helping to recoup such costs.
The problem is, whenever it's time to promote this Patreon campaign on the podcast, I cringe. It feels very, very uncomfortable, and more often than not, I skip it completely. It feels like begging for money, and I don't like that feeling.
I listen to other podcasts that celebrate their Patreon campaign with glee. I'm sure this is one reason they're raising more funds than my underperforming campaign. I suck at this aspect of hosting an independent podcast.
A huge thank you to those of you who have helped crowdfund this podcast thus far. I even had one gentleman ask me if he could email me money instead of using Patreon. The answer, of course, was yes.
To the rest of you, all I ask is that you visit my Patreon page and consider becoming a Toronto Mike'd Patron. If you like what you hear on Toronto Mike'd, please support it and help me to keep it going.
