Signal Boost #29: A Conversation about Exciting News!

12 Dec

On today’s Signal Boosts, Shaun and Jen share some exciting news about the Skiffy and Fanty website, our RSS feeds, the future of our funding sources, and our 2017 Reader/Listener Survey! Even though we’re pissed about what Patreon just did, our patron support has allowed us to do some really big things that will help us grow and provide you more control over what you listen to. It’s pretty gosh darn amazing. And please make sure you go take the survey so we can get even more awesome than we are now!

And then we get to our VERY IMPORTANT mini-boosts!

We hope you enjoy the episode!
