Title: Patreon

So after many years of listening to podcasts for free, I finally decided to donate to one on a recurring basis through Patreon. There are many sites that I have thought about supporting (Comic Book Club, iFanboy and "Wait ... What?" just to name a few) and I have come close many times, but I just never pulled the trigger.

However, over the last few months or so, and never really knowing what day it is  ;D, I found I was constantly checking in on one site, just hoping for a new episode and realized I was always very happy when they updated and there was a new 3 hours or so worth of comic talk and/or interviews with creators for me to listen to.

11 O'Clock Comics got my money.

What was the straw that broke open my wallet? THIS (http://11oclockcomics.com/2018/05/31/11-oclock-comics-episode-544/) episode. The Savage Sword of Conan one they recorded for their Patreon supporters a little while back (I think) and just posted for everyone to hear. Yep, I was enjoying them anyway, but they got me with Conan.
 :D
There is also Amazing #800 and Man of Steel #1 talk that I have not yet listened to, but I got the first two hours in
 ;)
Having read Amazing already I now have to read Man of Steel before I finish the episode tomorrow ... hopefully finish it tomorrow I mean.

But anyway ... are there any podcasts that you guys support? Either on a continual, revolving payment or a one time sum every now and then?

And hey, if you don't mind people talking over each other from time to time and you have 8 freakin' hours, Weird Science - DC Comics is another site that I always try and listen to. Not for the full 8 hours mind you, but ...
 :)

But yeah, those are my top 5 comic podcasts that I enjoy the most, it seems.

I have donated to iFanboy in the past and I regularly donate to No Agenda.  No Agenda is not a comic book podcast so probably not relevant to your question.

I used to listen to Under the Cover which only reviewed Image comics specifically.  I really liked that but alas, they stopped making episodes this year.   :-\

I sometimes wonder if I had donated to them would they still be around?  Food for thought......

I deleted my last post.
I am not a fan of Curry and I got a little too verbose in relaying that.

To a degree, I sort of don't like audio content. I'd rather read something at my faster pace than listen to someone (it's why I quit ESPN altogether.)
I like being directed at a specific interesting one (Perry, like the ones you directed at me after Bat v Super), but on the whole, not too often.
But I'll donate to NPR.

You must be talking about Curry's "Fear" of Math. Yeah, math. Doubts it value and validity  :D
