Support Offline, The Podcast
To my dearest Offline listeners,
Thank you for taking the time to listen, and then also for coming here to consider making a donation. I didn’t arrive easily or quickly at a donation page, but now that I am here it feels right.
My commitment to you
Now is a good time to tell you I’ve made a commitment to you, to us, and the people who’ve shared their stories so far. And that’s to ensure Offline remains a resource — a safe space to have honest conversations and explore true self.
It’s important to me that I protect our stories, and that means making impeccable decisions about who I welcome into our space.
What does that mean in practice?
Politely declining generous sponsorship offers from brands if the fit isn’t right for us. You have my word that if I do accept an offer, it will be because I believe the product or service will add value to our lives.
Offline is self-funded
As at February 2019, I’ve invested $16,000.
I have three seasons planned for this year, and, talent permitting, production costs will come in at just under $30,000. This is my donation goal and doesn’t include the 15+ hours a week I spend working on Offline — my baby! — which I will happily continue to do for free.
Thanks to you, I’m thinking big
Your ongoing support has given me the courage to think beyond weekly episodes. Offline is becoming much more than a podcast and that is wildly fulfilling.
This year I’m introducing teachers and healers so we can all learn together. I’m focused on hosting more Sundays Offline listener events, and have ambition to tour the country (hey, a girl has to dream big). I’m also thinking hard about other ways we can connect as a community of like-minded people interested in developing self. So much more to come here.
Offline was for you, and now its made possible by you
If Offline helps you, any donation you can afford will help me.
It’s exciting to think if 600 generous listeners donated $50 each, that would cover episode production costs for 2019.
Special extras for extra special people
If you choose to donate $50 or more, you’ll receive my fortnightly ~true self~ email — which will include links to the teachers, healers and books we discuss on the podcast, early access to Sundays Offline tickets and, if I raise enough, exclusive video content of my guests and I.
I’m going to pay it forward
I’ll be passing on $1 from every donation to The Walkley Foundation’s Public Fund for Journalism. This is where I started my career.
The Walkley Foundation is the heart of the media industry and ensures that Australians continue to benefit from the groundbreaking public interest journalism that is so important to our communities. It works to make the bonds of trust between the media and the public stronger than ever.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
