Help Professionalise Our Unprofessional Joke Of A Podcast

Hello Folks!

As you know we've been pumping out The Tilehurst End Podcast now for over 70 episodes over more than two years, plus our (usually) weekly Tilehurst End Podcast extras as well.

While we love having the chance to talk and analyse our beloved Reading Football Club - preparing, producing, recording and editing the show does take a significant amount of time and effort, after all it takes serious work to make something sound so unprofessional and joke like.

Over the past couple of years we've tried our best to improve the show both in terms of content and quality and while we're happy with the strides we've made we're always trying to get better. However to keep moving forward we do occassionally need a little bit of funding to buy new software and hardware plus provide a little bit of a morale boost when we're feeling low about having to slag off Hal Robson-Kanu for the 20th time in 19 shows.

So we thought we'd introduce this set of crowdfunding options to help us not only fund improvements to the show but also help us buy up some merch and help nudge the website forward as well.

So if you enjoy what we do and you want to help please consider firing over a couple of quid. Even if nobody donates we'll of course try to do our very best to make the show as good as we possibly can but with your support hopefully we can try and take a few extra steps forward over the coming weeks, months and years. 

***update****

We've had a few people get in touch who'd love to help but don't feel comfortable pledging on a monthly basis. If you would still like to donate but through paypal or through other means just drop us a quick email to thetilehurstend@gmail.com

Thanks!

TTE Podcast - Software Upgrade & Hosting Fees

$500 per month

To kickstart our dreams of World domination and a slightly better podcast, we thought we'd try and improve the software we use to record and edit the show. The industry leader is Adobe Audition and costs around £20 a month to use and should help us make a few more crafty edits and manage the sound levels a bit easier for future recordings. 

Likewise we currently pay a fee to podbean to make our steam available to all at whatever time of day and an unlimited number of downloads. Hitting our target would also safely cover those fees for a season or two and take another personal cost out of running the show.

 

 

 

Hardware Upgrades

$1,000 per month

Should we achieve such lofty goals we might be able to put together a bit more of a studio environment when we record. Reaching this amount should give me the funds to buy some decent headphones and possibly a second mic to help improve the audio quality and consistency of our recordings. 

Our last mug based fund raising round helped pay for the new mic that you've hopefully noticed has improved the quality of the Podcast Extra and our weekly recordings.

    Well done chaps for reaching 100 episodes on the podcast. I've enjoyed listening to you and reading the website, so it's about time I provided some tangible support. Keep up the good work.

    The USD bit is annoying as I'm sure I'll end up paying more in bank charges than you guys will get, but sure what can you do.
    I'd love to hear you attempt to pronounce my email address (It's Irish), but yeah, too cruel. my SBNATION profile is @muirinho (pronounced like Jose), so let's go with that.
