I have created a new way for you to support The Renaissance Podcast! The Podcast now has its own Patreon page. With your support I plan to upgrade the recording equipment for better quality sound for you the listener. My goal is to raise enough money for a professional quality mic and pre-amp. I would like to eventually upgrade to a professional mixing board and program as well. In addition to this, I am working on converting each episode into a video episode. Episode 1 is already on YouTube. So as you can see I have big plans for the podcast but I can’t do that without your support. If you are enjoying the podcast please consider donating. With even just a dollar an episode from every listener we would be able to make these upgrades within the month. Thanks for listening and thank you for your support!
