A LABOR OF LOVE
Like most podcasts out there, Simply Scottish is a labor of love. Andrew pays the costs of the show - hosting, production, promotion, and music - out of his own pocket. He is looking for listeners who enjoy the show and are willing to join him in covering costs and reaching a bigger audience. There are two types of sponsorship - Founding Sponsors who give a one-time gift and Monthly Sponsors who choose from three levels of giving.
Give a one-time specific gift of $250 to become a Founding Sponsor of Simply Scottish. This will cover either a full year of hosting and bandwidth for the podcast at Podomatic or a social media advertising campaign to reach new listeners.
