Ok, so right now I’m in a situation where I might need to make some hard choices on where my time goes. The thing is that this has been one of the best experiences of my life, but for financial reasons I might need to go back to law full time. The problem there being that law is one of those jobs that doesn’t leave room for much else.
Obviously, I would prefer to continue telling you stories. I think I have a knack for it, and I feel like discussing our shared history is important. And there’s a bunch of fun stuff that I have been working on and would love to do. Such as getting more interviews with experts, new side stories (similar to what I’ve been doing with St. Patrick) and I’ve even been looking into putting together tours. But for me to give this project the attention it deserves I need to do it full time, rather than as a hobby I squeeze in between cases.
So I thought I’d apply for the job of entertaining you. By my math, I need 150 new members in order to be able to afford to do this full time. After all, I’m not looking to get rich. I just want to be able to dedicate all my time to doing this podcast.
So if you like what I’m doing here, and you’d like me to do this full time, please consider becoming a member over at thebritishhistorypodcast.com. For around the price of a latte each month my day job could be telling you stories, hunting down new things to share with you, and bringing you interviews with experts on the material we have all come to know.
To pique your interest, I’ve got several incentives that I have listed over on the website which include a future series analyzing the tale of King Arthur, a special on Stonehenge, and even a trip to the UK with get togethers and perhaps even a group outing to the British Museum or something along those lines.
The truth of it is that I love this project. And I would really like to work for you full time. So I hope you’ll consider hiring me.
Besides, does the world really need another lawyer?
Here are the incentives, and I’ll be updating you with our progress in future podcasts.

I think this is a long shot so I’m going to make an outlandish offer…. Jim Cartwright and I will sing a duet of Total Eclipse of the Heart for you (we may or may not also be drinking Anglo Saxon Ale while this is occurring). There will probably be something else awesome as well. TBD.
