Be our patron!

We love making the Standard Issue podcast and we’re incredibly proud that so many people are listening. We want to keep making Standard Issue, and give our awesome listeners even more women-championing content, documentary specials and chopses with brilliant birds.

As an online magazine, we had a membership scheme: your money in exchange for goodies and thanks. But we’ve decided to wind it down. If you’re a member, your membership will still stand for the year you paid for, meaning you’ll be able to use your discount code for our live events. Remember, it’s a rolling membership (thanks so much for your continued support; we really appreciate it), so if you want to cancel your subscription, you have to let your PayPal know. (We can’t do it for you – sorry.)

The reason for this change: all the cool podcast kids are on Patreon, so we’ve decided to give that a bash. And so, if you like what we do, then please chuck us a bit of money. We really appreciate it.

How Patreon works (spoiler: it’s really simple). Patreon is a crowdfunding platform for creators. Artists, creators and, in our case, podcasters are paid by patrons (you please) who give us an amount of cash you’re comfy with each month. And you can stop giving it whenever you choose. You’re in control. 

And as a patron? You’ll be helping fund a smart, sharp and funny magazine-style podcast for women interested in everything. All women. No matter your age, background or where you live. There’ll be a mix of news, opinion, life stories and entertainment, all from a female perspective. Standard Issue will never bullshit you. And we’ll never tell you who to be, what to wear or how to look. We believe that every woman should feel empowered to simply be herself.

Thanks champs.
