Help me keep User Defenders podcast on the air...and help yourself to some amazing, exclusive perks!
Creating and running a podcast like User Defenders is not only a ton of work, but also very expensive.
Each episode costs $200-300 to put into the world, not to mention the recurring monthly/annual costs for software, hosting, CDN, Web dev, and more I won't bore you with.
Sponsors are what have made this show possible and kept the lights on since 2015, but sponsor dollars are scarce and unreliable.
I also don't want to just keep the lights on, but continue to grow the show (what got you here, won't get you there). I am envisioning some amazing things to continue happen and branch out from this purposeful, mission-minded entity. In addition to continuing to release the best UX podcast content in the Universe, organizing & running UD Community (and all the ongoing special training/events happening there), I'm currently trying to get a UD Mentors program off the ground, as well as even thinking about organizing a UD Conference one day.
Making these exciting things a reality, in addition to keeping the lights on on the podcast, will only be truly possible with your consistent support.
In exchange, I’ll give you some pretty marvelous/exclusive things in return such as:A personal thank you mention from me on a future episode Access to the exclusive patron-only feed Early ad-free access to future podcast episodes including an exclusive RSS feed Invite to membership at the exclusive (and thriving) UD Community Exclusive UD logo and symbol stickers mailed to you 20% off coupon code to the store for UD merch Monthly group live streams and/or one on one video chats with me
After you commit to a monthly pledge, consider yourself a valued member of this exclusive club! I encourage you to check out the Patreon page.

You're why I do this, and would like to continue to...
Fight on my friends!
