What a Strange Couple of Years It Has Been!

With your support, 2021 will be a pivotal year for A Way with Words.

With your help, and by tightening our budget, through 2019 and 2020, we’ve managed to weather the pandemic while still increasing listenership both on the radio and by podcast.

So many of you have said that you love that you can turn off the endless news cycle of politics and pandemic, pandemic and politics (with other unpleasant things thrown in), and turn to A Way with Words.

It’s a place where you can relax away from daily stresses without turning off your brain. You’ve told us you come away from listening relaxed and ready to go once more unto the breach, to “set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide, hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit to [their] full height.”

Now, with renewed hope as the world figures out what the new normal will be, we are making our plans and need your financial support to make them happen.

  • A new website. The website has not been updated since 2012.
  • A new podcast host. The new host costs more, but it gives us far more flexibility when it comes to inserting sponsor message and to make new versions of the feed (more on that to come in the future).
  • A new tour. We’re planning on going back on the road and that takes investment in marketing, promotions, and more.
  • New equipment. We’re looking at a slate of new expenses to replace and editing system that is more than 15 years old, including file storage, cloud backup, and more.

Thank you!
