Dear Panel Borders listener,

if you’ve enjoyed one of the more than 500 podcasts on this website and have a few pennies to spare, I’d be very grateful if you could donate a little to help pay for the cost of recording interviews. While the expenses of making radio shows and podcasts isn’t great – train tickets to travel to interviews, buying review copies of certain books, batteries for the mp3 recorder – they do add up, so please consider clicking on the donate button below and help out with the production of future episodes.

th

I’ll mention the names of donators in podcast outros, and thank you very much in advance, if you want to help out!

with gratitude,
Alex
