Fried Gear – Donations Needed [UPDATED]

Unfortunately, an expensive audio interface device I use for my podcasting went literally up in smoke last night.  It comes at an awkward time, because I am between day job gigs and cash flow is tight. Can you please spare a donation, to help replace it?  Consider the value you've received from our 85 high quality podcasts with 115+ interviews.  Even DVD box sets have only a fraction of the behind the scenes content we have offered. Every little bit helps...  No amount is too small (nor too big). [UPDATE 3:15pm EST] I'm absolutely blown away by the responses! The cost of the audio device is now covered, and some extra can go toward replacing a fried laptop I use heavily for podcasting, and also an upcoming yearly server bill. If you haven't had a chance to donate, these other needs are still pending. That said... countless thanks to all! Many thanks, Gray. ----- Subscribe on YouTube for the full playlist of episodes, and follow Gray on Twitter for podcast updates!

What is syndication, and how does it factor in? Can international fans make a difference? What is the most effective use of our energies? We tackle it all.
