In 2018, Anime Feminist—a website that features anime commentary, discussions, reviews, and more through a feminist lens—ran a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to pay for transcriptions of the Chatty AF podcasts hosted by the site's staff and guests. Now, the team is seeking to raise funds again through Patreon and Ko-fi to continue paying for podcast transcriptions, and readers and the rest of the community can do their part to help. 


The first campaign included one-time funds for the transcription of the first 75 episodes of Chatty AF. With the new crowdfunding effort, Anime Feminist hopes to raise money to transcript the remaining 50 podcasts and all future episodes. 


More details from the press release:


The 75-episode backlog will cost a total of $4,000 and is planned to be funded primarily through one-time contributions on Ko-fi. The site’s staff, meanwhile, hopes to pay the $220 it would cost to continue transcribing new episodes through monthly income from Patreon. 


Anime Feminist is seeking to add 50 additional $5-level Patreon supporters by October 11, its fourth anniversary, when the site plans to release its 126th podcast episode.


Anime Feminist wants to make sure those who contribute content to the site are all paid fairly for their work. If you're a fan of their bi-weekly podcast or just want to do what you can to chip in, you can check out their Patreon and Ko-fi pages for more.
