"Give us your money. Please?" they ask casually without any desperation. JK, we asking formally.
After months of talking about it, we've launched our company, Vocal Fry Studios, with a crowdfunding campaign.
Here's what we're going to do with it:
Buy some amazing equipment. We have a lot of good mics and whatnot but we want the best stuff.
Set up a scholarship fund for workshops. We want to teach folks how to make their own podcasts - everything from marketing to recording to editing to how not to get sued. But learning isn't cheap.
Bring back a podcasting favourite: Cavern of Secrets. The world needs more Lauren Mitchell. ASAP.
Set up our own studio. Right now, we're working out of a co-working space (shoutout to Startwell King St!) that has a great podcast studio. But we want our own kingdom where Katie can color-coordinate her XLR cables. We also want it to be fully accessible.
All of that costs a bunch of money.
We have clients who help pay our bills. And we'll be transparent about where your money goes and what it pays for.
We want to create a community of producers who get to make, host, produce and promote the podcasts of their dreams.
For that, we're gonna need a little help from our friends.

OH YEAH: If you're feeling VERY generous, you can buy some things from our Amazon Wishlist.
