If you're enjoying my podcasts, shows, and general interactions then please consider helping out by joining 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 pounds a month was roughly the price of a pint here in the UK when I started all this, a decade and a half ago, now it just buys a 'half'!!).

After the giveaway weeks, as detailed on the show in early July 2022, the weekly 'prizes' are now finished and most cases have been given away - or (for older items) chucked.

It was a fun 'giveaway decade', eh?!

Follow me on Twitter at @stevelitchfield to see news and announcements.

If you'd like to be part of all this and if you can help keep The Phones Show on the air, please donate by using the button below. Maybe you've got a little PayPal money (or Bitcoin) burning a hole in your online account? Thanks!
