Members pay to keep the lights on for the podcast they love. In return, they receive bonus episodes. Some members even pay extra to support Accentricity's outreach project for young podcasters.

Memberships are more personal than subscriptions and more sustainable than donations. A loyal community doesn’t only pay in exchange for attractive benefits. They’re often happy to pay just to keep you going.

About us

Our publishers speak for themselves

Luke Turner

The Quietus
“Steady isn't a tech platform trying to make money off publishers, it's publishers trying to make the publishing ecosystem work.”

Nathalie Hasson

Louie Media
“Something I like about working with Steady is that we can be part of developing a better product that really fits our needs. We feel very listened to.”

Gay Times
“I personally think a reader-funded model is the way forward for the media. It is for us, and we're excited to develop that.”

Liv Little

“We shouldn't be scared of asking people to invest in the creative work we produce, because the creative work we produce costs money.”

Alberto Puliafito

Slow News
“Every day we're surprised by the warmth and power of the readers who sustain us. This is the power of memberships.”
