Dark Histories is growing and that’s AWESOME! What’s slightly less awesome is the associated fees for hosting a healthy Podcast on a consistent host, handling the technical side of things to keep up with audience expectations etc. The podcast is entirely independent, I don’t have producers, marketers, smoochers nor any of that other associated fluff that medium to large podcasts often have these days, the “team” is literally me and you, the listener. That’s another win, however, it can get expensive. Below is a couple of ways you can help us out and support the show whilst getting some sweet bonus content.
I use Patreon which allows you to make a recurring monthly payment from as little as $1 in exchange for perks, like ad-free, early access episodes, bonus content, full live stream archive in both audio and video format, stickers and postcards, an E-Book and access to all my research notes for each episode.
If you would rather pay a small, one off donation rather than recurring monthly support, we also have a Ko-fi page for just that! You won’t get any of the perks available to our Patreon members, such as ad-free early access episodes or bonus content, but for those that prefer to just toss me some change when they can, you can use this method and it is gratefully received! The one thing I can do with Ko-Fi is give you a specific shout-out so if you’d like me to read your shout out message to you or a loved one or anyone else, feel free to leave a quick message when you donate and I’ll get it in.

As a member of Audible, you get one credit every month to spend on an audiobook of your choice and if you cancel your subscription, you keep your books. I’m actually a member myself so am really pleased we could bring an advertiser to the table that I actually do rate.

Once your trial is up, you can cancel if it’s not for you and you’ve lost absolutely nothing and given us a small kickback in the process.
