Thank you! That's very kind of you but don't worry, we don't expect people to go without just to give us money! I can certainly empathise with your situation, I got made redundant about 18 months ago and started my own business which is almost earning enough to pay the mortgage lol!To be quite honest Fitz your podcast is one of the ones I would/will subscribe to. The spooktator is also one that springs immediately to mind. 4 good quality podcasts at a fiver a month I would not object to but, whilst I am still lucky enough to be gainfully employed, my wife retired in March and we are feeling the pinch at a halving of our monthly income.
I do know what you mean though, we try not to shout about the patreon too much but I have listened to a few shows where they are quite strong on pushing it (though I get the feeling that this is more of a cultural thing for non Brits). The ones that put me off a bit are the ones that try and guilt you into it by saying that they're going to lose their house etc. I can kind of understand it if it's a one off surprise, like being due to unforseen injury etc, but expecting an income is something else.
