The first four seasons of the podcast were personally underwritten by Kate and Katherine with incredible support from our wonderful Patreon subscribers. The funds generated from our Patreon supporters went directly to paying our amazing Sound Producer, Phoebe Ady.

We are forever grateful for this loyal and ongoing support which has allowed us to deliver the podcast and to scale up and innovate our income models. As a consequence, we are able to continue to invest in people and technologies to deliver the quality podcast that we aspire to, and to evolve our offerings for the benefit of our writing community.

Patreon subscriptions will continue to play an incredibly important role in allowing the high-quality production of the First Time Podcast and for which we will be forever grateful. Patreon supporters donate as little as $7, or as much as $20 a month.
