The big Phones Show weekly giveaway

The video show is produced on a shoestring budget and desperately needs your help! If you're enjoying it every week or two and also enjoying the weekly audio followup podcast then please consider helping out by 'subscribing' - what I call my monthly 'virtual pint of beer' club - i.e. if you met me in the street, would you at least buy me a beer to say "thank you"? (3 a month was roughly the price of a pint here in the UK a year or two ago).

Please subscribe because you think the work I put in is worth it. And not because of the giveaways.

Giveaways? Oh yes, as an incentive, I'm giving away loads of accessories to people drawn at random on The Phones Show Chat podcast every week until further notice...

I have a choice of accessories (listed below) to give away to a lucky monthly 'virtual pint of beer' subscriber or an ad-hoc donator (auto-added in from donations in the previous month - in other words, you don't have to sign up 'monthly' in order to be in the draw), chosen at random every week until further notice on the Phones Show Chat.

Thanks to the various companies which have donated some of the stock below, and also Ted Salmon, who supplied a fair few(!)

The winner, each week, will be notified by email and can choose any item from the list below, posted free worldwide:
