Heading: Why monthly memberships Text: A steady monthly income means that both shows and the network can plan for the long term. Knowing our (general) annual income helps! Having a steady income helps hosts make the time to ensure new episodes of your favorite shows keep coming out on a regular basis. It also makes it easier for the creators of your favorite podcast to remain independent so they can do what they'd like with their show. And processing memberships on a monthly basis lets us ask for money less often. I think that's something we all prefer! Text in a bubble: On average, memberships make up 70% of our network's income. We truly couldn't do what we do without our members. Thank you!
