My young son told me, just days ago, how his fave podcaster charges per... and how much of a pain it is to download and deal with each individually. He has given up supporting his work... he'd rather pay an annual sum, and download whatever as he needs it.

I write for Substack, have monthly and annual subscribers, and because EACH payment deducts $0.30 I lose more on my monthly subs. The work of the payment company has to be taken into account. If you're talking bits and pieces (two bits!), it will pile up.

And that's MY 2 bits... Thank you for writing!!


My latest book is a memoir, Dance Me to the End: Ten Months and Ten Days With ALS. My newsletter is on Substack: THE UNSCHOOL FOR WRITERS.
