Each episode of Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy takes dozens of hours to produce. We have to brainstorm guests, schedule guests, research guests, read their new work, think up questions, record the interview, edit the interview, transcribe the interview, add links and images to the interview, brainstorm panel topics, research panel topics, produce a panel outline, brainstorm guest geeks, schedule guest geeks, record the panel, edit the panel, upload the audio to Wired, the feed, and YouTube, and post about the episode on Facebook, Twitter, and, etc.

We’re having a blast doing the show, and don’t intend to stop anytime soon, but our current ratio of time invested to income earned is definitely not sustainable, and without financial support from listeners like you we can’t keep the show going at its current pace indefinitely. You can contribute funds to help keep the show going via PayPal:

Or make a check payable to:

PO BOX 20371
PALO ALTO, CA 94309-0371

You can also set up PayPal to make recurring monthly payments. Learn more here.

If you do make a payment, you’ll be listed below with a bunch of other fine folks. (Of course, if you prefer to remain anyonymous, just let us know.) The numbers indicate the order in which listeners made their first payment, so later on when the show becomes super-popular and you start telling people that you were listening before it was cool, you’ll have a number to prove it. Level 2 = $25, Level 3 = $50, Level 4 = $100, and Level 5 = $150. Payments are cumulative, so if you make two payments of $25, you’ll be listed in Level 2. If you like, your name on the list can be linked to your website, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

You can also include a personal message of 50 characters or less. (This is totally optional.) It can be anything you want, within reason. For example — “Greetings from Djibouti! Keep up the good work!” or “I’m a college student living in Austin, Texas” or “Check out my new novel Awesome Dragon.” You get the idea. Direct all questions/corrections/requests to:
