Suck My Pirate Pump, Now With Extra Steam
Patronage: would you sit in a rich man’s basement and write for cash? It may well come to that in the era of infinite distribution… Something our star panellist Ross Pruden knows about – because he coined the term. Ross is the thinking person’s Cory Doctorow: tonight, he’s explaining what digital abundance and scarcity mean for authors.
In fact, it’s a twofer on polymaths tonight – Nic Alderton is the chap with an artist in his basement, and there’s a good reason for it, too.
With writer-lawyer Donna Ballman from Florida, Dave Bartram from England’s mysterious West and Catwake entrancing in the chatroom… this is one thought-provoking show you won’t easily forget.
We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
