Please Meet Our Sponsor, All Things Equitable

Hi folx,

Earlier this month we put out the call for a sponsor for our podcast. Simply put, while  recording it remained – and remains – fun, the production and marketing work threatened to overwhelm us. Frankly, we knew we needed help otherwise season 4 was going to be our last. 

Though we needed help, we didn’t just want any sponsor. We wanted someone whose commitment to anti-racism matched our own, and who would be happy to let us operate in our zone of excellence without trying to censor our voices. After blogging about it, we posted on LinkedIn and were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support we got. 

In particular, Lisa and I were verklempt because Janelle Benjamin of All Things Equitable offered to sponsor our podcast. And she did it within 5 minutes of us posting. Lisa and I have been connected with Janelle online for a while, and have seen and loved the work she’s been doing both via her consultancy, and her YouTube video series “White and Work at Work” and “Twice as Hard”. We’ve had many interesting and enlightening conversations online. She’s good people, and we couldn’t be more delighted to have All Things Equitable as a sponsor.  Read More

The Introvert Sisters Podcast Needs Sponsors

Hey folx,

We have an announcement. Unless we get sponsorship, the Introvert Sisters podcast will go on hiatus after Season 4. We love doing the podcast, but we need help. And the funds to buy the help we need aren’t available on our current budget.

The Podcast Production Process

So far, we’ve recorded about 70 episodes (not all of them are released yet) and we have 300+ regular listeners (we finally managed to get the stats from Apple and Spotify).

But anyone who’s ever done it knows that running a podcast takes work. A LOT of work.

In addition to the recording, every 30 minute episode requires hours of post production time to:
