Support The State of Us!

Back in September 2017, we (Jane Casey & Roisin Linnie) started The State of Us Podcast at a kitchen table in Dublin 8. We spent weekends and evenings trying to find our voice, learn how to edit, find a solid theme tune (our biggest success!), book guests, research topics and countless other little tasks that are important in getting a podcast off the ground.

It wasn’t until February 2018 that we released our first episode, "The Terrible Twenties", and expected a grand total of 10 listens, mostly from our mates.

Tens of thousands of listens and an iTunes top ten later we’re still absolutely blown away with how the podcast resonated with so many of our peers. It’s fucking incredible to be completely vulnerable and honest on the internet, and have so many people reflecting the very same insecurities back to us. You’re all unreal, and without your engagement, we’d have a hard time staying motivated. It’s just as much your podcast as ours and we put hours into each episode, making it with loads of TLC.

So, to cut to the chase…

Unlike many other Irish podcasts, we have no brand sponsorship or affiliations with media outlets. We rely on word of mouth to get the podcast out there and pay all overheads out of our own pockets.

As we grow, hosting fees are becoming more expensive. We use free editing software and don’t even own our own recording equipment (Cheers Dave!).

We want to continue to grow and become better and better, and we need help subsidising the cost of this - but don’t worry - we’ll never, EVER, charge for content.

Basically, we’re asking our regular listeners to become patrons of the podcast by pledging as much or as little as they want on a monthly basis.

If just half of our monthly listeners pledge just one euro per month - like, a third of the cost of a coffee - we’ll have enough cash to cover hosting fees, buy some badly needed equipment and maybe, just maybe, have enough left for a bottle of pinot grigio and a takeaway to keep us fuelled on our recording nights.

We know that times are tough and the cost of living is more expensive than ever, so no worries if you're not in a position to donate. Feel free to keep enjoying the podcast and sending us your messages.  But if you can afford it, please pledge as much as you think our content is worth… whether it’s 50 cent or €50 per month, we’d hugely appreciate it.


Love,
Jane & Ro

Production & Hosting Costs

$100 per month

If we reach this milestone, we'll be able to cover production and some of the hosting costs on a monthly basis. Bandwidth doesn't grow on trees!

Reached!

Equipment Upgrade

$300 per month

With this amount, we'll be able to buy our own recording equipment, facilitating better quality audio for guest interviews and maybe even the odd studio rental for a big guest.

All of the above, a takeaway and a bottle of wine.

$400 per month

With this amount, we'll be able to cover all the basics - new equipment, production and hosting costs - with a little left over to keep us fed and watered on our recording nights!
