If you would like to donate, we would love you to donate. Holly and Susan are looking for kind-hearted creative supporters. At our Ko-fi page you can either make a ‘one-off’ donation or you can choose to make a monthly donation. For monthly donors there are extras, like access to the ‘uninterupted’ episode with Joan Mills and the extended episode with Nino Naneishvili.

My Journey to Georgia in a Pandemic

Podcast host Holly on terrace overlooking Tbilisi city scape

“In all of these moments I feel so strongly the vibrations of all of you who wish you could be in Georgia right now, singing and toasting with old friends. I promise that I’m carrying you in my heart! I feel it’s my responsibility to make the most of every single moment I have here.”

You might have been following Holly’s recent journey to Georgia from the UK. As a thank you to our Ko-Fi supporters, she has written all about what it took to make it to her favourite country in what seemed like impossible circumstances.

Donate to Podcast Running Costs

Who knew it cost money to make a podcast?! At the start our two main costs were subscriptions and equipment. After publishing eight episodes, we are now recording just how much time it takes to make an episode and will be updating our Ko-fi goal to properly reflect the whole costs of bringing these wonderful stories to our listeners.

Subscriptions: These are our annual running costs. (Because we have already used up all the free trials available from these providers.) Pro unlimited Soundcloud Hosting : £53.42 Otter.ai (transcription service): £73.10 Squadcast service (used to record remote guests): £43.95 Website Hosting: £ 14.40 Total annual costs: £184.87 Equipment: Portable mic and recorder (like the Tula usb mic): £160.

Here’s the Ko-fi page to donate.
