In the past three years, listeners have generously donated $469 to this podcast. During that same time, however, production has totaled more than $3000 and counting. While the passion and dedication to WINMI may be endless, funds unfortunately are not. This is why I produce and create almost everything myself to keep expenses down. But for the long run I need your help to continue the growth and work of Why I’ll Never Make It.
So I would greatly appreciate your designated donations...
The areas of production you can designate include episode transcriptions, which enables Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing artists access to these important conversations. Here's an example of one I did for the Sign Language episode back in Season 4. Mia Engle, one of the interpreters from that episode, said:
"You took the time to dive past the surface of ASL into the depths of the topic, where theater, interpreting, and accessibility meet. It's so well-crafted, I feel grateful to have been involved."
Transcriptions would certainly be a wonderful ongoing addition to the podcast to increase accessibility, but I am a one-man operation and this service is costly and time-consuming. So your financial help would be greatly appreciated.
Other areas you can support are more robust video production of past and future episodes, ongoing costs of podcast and website hosting services, and expanding the resources offered to artists like George Salcido who listen and use this episodes:
"Genuinely I love listening and hearing what other people have to say. I get a lot of inspiration from your podcast and I work on being a better actor everyday because of it."
One day, I also hope to expand WINMI and actually have a team putting this podcast together, but that requires revenue to hire an editor, assistant producer, marketer, etc. So if you have found any benefit from listening to Why I’ll Never Make It, please consider a one-time donation through PayPal or choosing a monthly subscription, which includes bonus content on Supercast.
(For those who don't have a PayPal account, you can also use Venmo or Ko-fi for general donations.)
