Support the Podcast

Rex Factor is a free podcast but we do incur a number of costs in researching, producing and hosting the podcast. So, if you’d like to show your appreciate and support the podcast we’d be extremely grateful! And this is how you can do it:

Monthly Payment

If you’d like to make a regular donation, then you can do so by making a monthly pledge (essentially a voluntary subscription) and join the Rex Factor Privy Council. Depending on the level of donation, you will receive rewards ranging from a mention on the podcast ($1 per month) to commissioning a special podcast episode on the subject of your choice ($15 per month) and get free access to our special episodes:

One-Off Payment

If you don’t want to make a regular payment then you can also make a one-off donation via PayPal by clicking the button below:

Audible

A cool way that you can help us out is by signing up for a free 30-day trial and downloading a free audiobook from Audible using the link below. We get credit from Audible every time someone uses our link, so you can effectively donate for the podcast and get a free audiobook without having to pay anything!

Spread the Word

If you want to help out but don’t have the money to spare to donate then we would really appreciate you spreading the word and telling anyone you think might be interested in us that they should check us out. In particular, leaving a review on iTunes helps to increase our visibility in one of the main places where people access podcasts. If you have any suggestions on how we could do more on this front then please get in touch!

  1. I’d like to put my vote in for a Lady Jane Grey episode. I was absolutely gutted that she didn’t get her own episode. Based on scandal alone, I’m surprised that Ali didn’t put in a good fight for this one. I’m supposing then, for my vote to count, I’d have to join the $15/month privy council?

    Cheers,

    • Hi Kelsey. Yes, we might one day pick our own special episode topics and put it out for a vote between a few choices but at the moment we have a good number of requests from the $15 a month privy councillors. No one has requested her yet (though there are a couple yet to confirm a topic) so the best way to get a special episode on her would be either to try to convince prospective privy councillors that she’d be a great topic or, as you say, to sign up for the top level amount and request her yourself.

      I agree, though, she would make for an excellent episode – I remember when we didn’t do her Ali saying that she would presumably be a very short episode but having covered her a little in Mary I’s episode I know that you could easily go into a lot of detail into her short life and ‘reign’, so definitely plenty to get our teeth stuck into!

  2. Hi

    Love the podcast and want to give you a monthly contribution but put off my transaction charges for dollars (I’m a Brit). Any chance you could set up PayPal payments? The BHP (British History Podcast ) does this and it works really well. Thanks!

    • Hi Joanne,

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ll make enquiries about being able to choose the currency for the payment – the crowdfunding is a new thing that Podbean (who host the podcast) have recently introduced so I’ve not really had much chance to explore it yet beyond the initial set-up. I’ll provide an update once I’ve heard back from them!

    • Hello, just providing an update, it looks like it is just going to be in USD for now – apparently this makes for a better exchange rate but I guess the main reason is it’s easier for them!

    • Hello, just letting you know that we’ve now set up a new PayPal button which does allow you to do monthly payments as well as one-off payments. We’d prefer our monthly donations to be via the Crowdfunding as it’s easier to keep track of, but if you want to do it via PayPal then that’s now an option – might help to let us know if that’s what you’re doing just in case we miss it and think it’s a one-off!
