>Hello from Mosen Consulting, where we're hunkering down for a New 
>Zealand winter.
>I'm working feverishly on a new audio course we're really excited 
>about. It's one of our most requested courses, and I hope to be able 
>to tell you more about it soon. In the meantime, here's another 
>innovation I hope you'll find of value.
>
>As a confirmed geek from way back, I love reading the latest tech 
>news. In January 2018, I decided to start a daily Internet radio 
>show on Mushroom FM called The Daily Fibre. It blends the latest 
>tech news with a great mix of music from the 50s through the 80s.
>
>It's been very popular, but there's been one frequent request. "Can 
>you please make this available as a podcast?"
>
>Mushroom FM is a voluntary project, and sadly, there's only so much 
>time I can give to The Daily Fibre without what puts food on the 
>table suffering. Putting a podcast of the show together would take 
>too much time out of my day.
>
>Then, a listener came up with an idea. Why not ask listeners who 
>want to grab the show as a podcast to pay a little for the time it 
>takes to do the work of researching and recording the show? That 
>way, it can be a legitimate use of Mosen Consulting time.
>
>So, here we are. If you like listening to The Daily Fibre on 
>Mushroom FM, it remains available there just as it always has been, 
>aired twice a day for free.
>
>If you'd like to hear The Daily Fibre even before it airs on 
>Mushroom FM, if you want to download the show, if you'd like to hear 
>it in your podcast player and speed it up, and if you'd like to hear 
>just the tech stuff without all the music, then I would be thrilled 
>if you felt that my work was worthy of your support by paying a very 
>small amount for the time and effort it takes for me to fulfil this commitment.
>
>I'm offering a monthly subscription to The Daily Fibre podcast for 
>just $5. That works out at about a quarter per episode. It's a low 
>low price, but I hope that by keeping it so low, many people will 
>feel able to afford the cost, and I'll be able to keep the project 
>going for a long time to come.
>
>When you subscribe, you'll get a link to your own private RSS feed 
>which you can paste into compatible podcast clients. You'll also be 
>able to download the files as MP3 if you prefer to do that.
>
>In return for your $5, less than the cost of a cup of coffee every 
>day, you'll get the latest in tech news, with clear explanations of 
>what it all means, and, where relevant, a blindness angle.
>
>I'll be offering this on a trial basis to assess if there's 
>sufficient demand to make this a valid use of Mosen Consulting time. 
>If it sounds like it would be of value to you, 
><http://www.patreon.com/JonathanMosen>choose this link to visit the 
>page for The Daily Fibre Premium Podcast and sign up. You can do so 
>by creating a Patreon account and subscribing with PayPal or any 
>major credit card. You're able to cancel at any time.
>
>Thank you in advance for your support, and for all the interest that 
>has led to this experiment.
