It isn't cheap running a podcast and as the podcast grows in popularity so does the cost of running the podcast.
In order to provide you with the best possible podcast we can, outside of our own brand of weirdly dark humour, we invest heavily in good quality audio equipment, editing software, audio file hosting and domains.
Currently, the podcast costs an annual £140 just to host and that does not include the constant and ongoing improvements we make to our audio equipment and software - all designed to give a crisper show and to reduce file size to speed up your download times or lessen the drain on your data usage for those who stream our podcast.
If you would like to make a small donation to our podcast fund to help us keep going and improving then it would be much appreciated. The Goonersphere Podcast will always remain free to listen to but any small donation you can make helps us keep the podcast advert free. If donations ever exceed costs and we too far off renewal to put it towards that we'll buy some really nice things to give away on the podcast – or just all go to Nando's.
Here is a list of our sponsors and the message they left with their donation.
