In late 2015, a perfect storm of technical issues combined with a series of financial reversals made it impossible to continue. Now, I want to get the podcast up and running again. I already have five episodes ready to post and many more interviews lined up.
I need these funds to rebuild my website, thecommentarytrack.com. I also need to invest in new equipment so that I can begin doing phone interviews at an acceptable sound quality (boy, I hate the sound of phone interviews). And if there’s any money left over, I want to explore ways to more aggressively advertise the podcast. So far it has been a labor of love. I can’t afford labors of love anymore, so I want to find a way to make the podcast sustainable.
Bringing back The Commentary Track will also revive my other podcast, Radio Movies with Frank Thompson. I really look forward to producing that one again. Providing in-depth film history introductions to these radio adaptations of classic movies is one of the most enjoyable things I do.
Thanks so much for supporting this project Any contribution is welcome. And if you can’t toss any money this way – believe me, I understand – please at least spread the word to your friends who might want to be a part of my podcasts’ resurgence.
