Donate to Rant Cast



We really, really appreciate you listening to Rant Cast, our weekly podcast, and both Ed and Paul really enjoy doing it. We’ve done a show almost every single week for the past season and a half, and quite a few the season before that, and of course we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t love it.

It’s definitely a fun hobby, but it does take up a lot of (mostly Ed’s) time and a fair amount of (entirely Ed’s) money. We’re setting up this donation button just in case you feel like chucking a couple of quid our way. There’s no minimum donation, and if you’re an eccentric millionaire who wants to set us up for life, that’s fine too.

If you’d rather not, we won’t love you any less. Thanks for listening, and we really hope you’ll continue to do so,

Paul

    Fuck off you cheeky cunts. These are difficult economic times and you expect us just to hand over our hard earned money. Are you some kind of charity or are you running a scam to fund the Glazers? If you need any additional cash then I’ve heard there’s plenty to be made hanging round the docks on the Thames most evenings.

    Wait, let me just read back to look for anything about expecting…Nope! Just an option for listeners to contribute.

    To be fair Paul used to live in Africa, and he's probably quite peckish after a night's ranting, and, well, he looks like this…. think of it as charidee

    People who complain don’t realise the quality they’re getting!

    One condition though – you’d better keep it going! Not donating for you to retire to the Caribbean on it!

    • Paul

      Ha – you’re safe – we’re going till at least the end of next season.

    Why do you need money to do a podcast? They cost nowt to make

    • http://www.unitedrant.co.uk Ed

      sidney – we don’t ‘need’ money, but it’s not true that its free to do. The mics cost plenty and the bandwidth costs are increasing because it’s becoming popular and we keep it at high quality. I personally subsidise all of this. I doubt we’ll be donated much more than will cover costs at any rate. But since there’s no advertising on the site, or on the podcast, and basically never has been in the past seven years, and this is voluntary, and I spend hours and hours doing this…

    Serious question
    how much do u need?

    • http://www.unitedrant.co.uk Ed

      None. I don’t need anything. This is a labour of love that I have refused to tarnish with spammy adverts. We thought we’d let the readership decide what the effort is worth, if anything.

    Aye, its good that there is no advertising. I admire your principles. It would be easy to start cashing in here & there as Rant is seen & heard by a larger audience.

    I’m just surprised you’re open to taking money for a podcast, when I know people who do ‘em for nowt. Admittedly, they’re shit, but that’s because their content is wank, not the production. A donation to the site and its upkeep makes more sense to me. Why not do that n all.

    ^^^^ What he said, personally I don’t listen to the rantcast myself, but I’m a frequent visitor to the site.

    I’ll consider donating to the podcast if you make a few changes. The bandwidth should be utilised in a more useful manner. I was thinking a propaganda broadcast to rally support against the Glazers. Perhaps promote an uprising. That clown, Duncan Drasdo, is only in it for himself. At one point I even think he sent an email asking for people to hand over money to some non Man Utd related business venture.

    I propose a new slogan:

    ‘Unite and fight’
