Become A Patron

We have loved producing IMTalk since it started in 2006. From that time we have managed to put out a show every week and it has became a big part of many triathletes weekly routine. We are really proud of what IMTalk has become and how much the community has grown. It’s a special bunch of people sharing a passion for our sport.

While the community has grown to a very impressive number, podcasting as a medium has always struggled to find its financial feet. IMTalk has experienced the same thing. We have been very lucky to have some amazing sponsors but the payment we get isn’t a lot. Both of us spend a lot of time and resources putting the show together each week so we were hoping that you could support us in funding IMTalk. That’s why we have our patron programme, it’s a way that you can be a bigger part of IMTalk. 

Here’s what we’ll do with your patronage: 

  • Keep the show going indefinitely for your weekly entertainment.
  • More preparation for the shows so we deliver a top notch effort week in and week out.
  • Spend more time getting top notch interviews.
  • Get to Kona every second year for our “Kona Super Specials”.
  • Keep sponsors to a minimum (ie no more than three per show - if enough listeners sign up we can have sponsor free shows).
  •  Ultimately we'll create a better show that you can enjoy each week.

There are different patronage levels, check them out down below.
