You’ve made A Way with Words a hugely popular independent public radio show!

The podcasts have been downloaded almost 9,000,000 times, and since July 2012, the show’s over-the-air and online listenership has climbed more steeply — pushing the program into the top 10% of all public radio shows in North America. That’s without financial or marketing support from NPR.

In fact, our biggest source of program funding — more than half of it — comes directly from you, our listeners.The show can only happen if you help support it! Please give now.

With your help, we produce a great-sounding national show with just five part-time people, and with a budget that’s tiny compared to other national programs. There’s no large overhead. No big facilities to support. No huge payrolls. We do a lot with a little.

Donate now to support the program. Your donation is tax-deductible.

You can also donate by postal mail: Wayword, Inc., P.O. Box 632721, San Diego, CA 92163.

Thank you, and best wishes,
