Community Announcements

Birthday Fundraiser: Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to our 2nd Birthday fundraiser. We exceeded our goal of $3k and raised over $5k! This means we’ll be able to print and ship Issue 7: Security on time. It also means that I have a lot of tongue-twisters to read dramatically and also that I’ll be finding a way to read them LIVE, ON THE AIR! Stay tuned for that.

And, of course, there’s still time to support the Recompiler with a subscription, monthly contribution, or by purchasing a mug or tote bag from our shop.  The upcoming Responsible Communication Guide is also available for pre-order.

Many ways to listen and subscribe

The Recompiler podcast is available on iTunesSoundcloudStitcher, and Google Play where you can listen, subscribe, like, and share episodes.

And, you’ll always be able to subscribe and find all episodes of the podcast on recompilermag.com/podcast. If you listen through iTunes, it would help us out tremendously if you could leave a review. This helps others find the show. It doesn’t have to be lengthy. A simple “I enjoy the show” with your choice of stars, I recommend 5 of course, is all that’s needed.

Support the Recompiler

Lastly, please support the Recompiler with a subscription or monthly contribution. You’ve probably noticed that we do not selling advertising either here on the podcast or in the magazine. We do this so we can concentrate on developing great content with you, our audience, our community.

In order to sustain our efforts, we need your financial support. 

Please consider what you can comfortably give to support what we’re doing here at the Recompiler and then subscribe or make a contribution. Thank you!
