We're an indie podcast with limited resources, so we could really use your support. You can set up a monthly recurring donation at patreon.com/vocalfriespod. The $5 a month level gives you access to our monthly bonus episode, as well as a Vocal Fries sticker and a shout out on the podcast! But you can contribute as little as $1 a month and have our undying gratitude!
