On Sunday we dropped Episode 46 of The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast. Co-host Drew Dyrli Hermeling interviewed Penn State historian Julie Reed about presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s claim to be a descendant of native Americans. I hope you enjoy it. (There is also a brief “blooper reel” after the credits!) Drew tells me that it has one of the highest number of “launch day” downloads in the history of the podcast. (Maybe I should just turn the hosting duties over the Drew!) 🙂
As we approach 50 episodes, the podcast is preparing for some transitions. Our studio producer Abigail LaBianca is graduating in May and our funding for her replacement is almost gone (we are still paying Abby through a one-time gift from an angel donor). Meanwhile, Drew is going through some changes in his work life that might limit the number of hours he can work with the podcast. I would like to keep going, but I am not willing to sacrifice on quality.
Over the next several months we are going to have to make some hard decisions about the future of the podcast. I am not a big fan of asking for money, but our ongoing Patreon campaign could really use a boost in the next 8-10 weeks. We need to know if there are folks out there who like our product enough to support it. Learn more about how you can help fund our work here.
A big thank you for those who are already supporting our work. Patrons come and go and we appreciate all of you. We especially appreciate those of you have stuck with us from the beginning.
And we still have several more episodes coming this Spring! Stay tuned. I think you will enjoy them.
