If you are reading this, that means, that on some level, you interact with The Wild Life. Maybe you’ve followed since the beginning. Maybe you’re a long time listener. Maybe you follow Devon (that’s me!) on social media and just enjoy basking in the ‘coolness’ that he (I) exudes. Whatever your reason might be for coming across this, we’re talking to you. Yes, you! You, the wonderful human being who is maybe reading this after a hard day at work, or who’s struggling to get out of bed, or who just had the greatest workout of their life, or just saw a bird do that one really weird thing you’ve only seen once before and just want to know why. The person, like all of us, who is flawed, and beautiful, and curious, and smarter than they think. You.
The Wild Life depends on you. Devon (me, again) is a High School science teacher with two young children with a passion project and a dream that is slowly becoming reality. Richard is a space science student with a head full of dreams. We do what we do out of love and an endless drive to chase our curiosity, and in the process, hopefully, inspire you to look at the world around with a little sense of wonder.
Well, we’re growing! Episode downloads are up over 600%! With that comes new needs.
Avid, the company that produces the Pro Tools editing software has a license purchase special discount if 65% bringing the total cost to about $250. That’s the editing software hit podcasts, such as Radiolab, use! Trouble is, that offer only lasts until the end of November.
We NEED it. Just like Richard needs a new microphone and recording setup, and we need to make new merch sample purchases and actual purchases to provide as gifts and promo items. Having these tools is a game changer for us.
What’s The Incentive To Become a Member Now?
Just in the past few weeks, we’ve launched the Wildlife Ambassadors program. Basically, when you become a member at Patreon.com/TheWildLife, you can pick a species of some kind of personal importance to you and we will donate 10% of your contributions each month to either a conservation program or research project related to that species! Yes, you read that right! We’ll also feature you and your species on our website along with your lifetime conservation contributions.
