Fund our work
Editorial and financial independence work hand in hand, and an independent Indigenous media outlet supported and sustained by its audience is free to be fearless.
There are a number of ways to sustain the work we do:
NEW! Listen free, earn us revenue with the RadioPublic app
Listen for free, help us earn revenue: it’s a win-win! Every time you listen to us using the RadioPublic app, we get paid. Download the app (which works on Apple and Android devices), then click on the button to add our show!
Patreon is a platform that lets you directly support creators through a regular monthly payment on your credit card. (You may stop at any time.) By supporting our work with a recurring pledge through our Patreon page, you enable us to dedicate more time to producing the podcast; a steady, consistent stream of income also means we’re more able to explore complementary activities beyond the program, like the events we’ve done in Edmonton and Winnipeg!
If a one-time contribution to our work is more your speed, we have a few ways set up for you to contribute:
NEW! Interac e-transfer
Have an account with a major Canadian bank? Now you can show your support directly using Interac e-transfers. (Note that fees may apply in some cases; be sure to check out what your banking plan allows.) As we’re set up for ‘Autodeposit,’ your transfer should go straight through. Here’s how to do it:

Where the money goes
Every month, there are technological costs associated with hosting and distributing the podcast (LibSyn) along with the costs to host this companion website, a site we’ve had re-tooled with the assistance of experienced WordPress developers. We’ve invested upfront in the tools needed to record the show (e.g., a microphone and Zoom H5 recorder), and the software we use to edit it (Hindenburg Journalist Pro).
Although the maxim “freedom of the press belongs to those who own one” is a tad outdated thanks to the Interweb (which has made it stupidly easily for anyone to publish and distribute content), the intellectual labour of human beings remains the lifeblood of any creative enterprise. Your contributions help cover the time and effort Rick spends producing, hosting, editing and promoting the show each week (this fellow podcaster breaks it all down rather well), as well as the time and effort the other roundtablers dedicate to preparing for and participating in the show.
