Astronomy Cast is made possible through the generous donations of listeners like you. Your donations allow us to pay our server bills, to attend scientific meetings and conventions (like the Communicating Astronomy to the Public conference), and to pay the staff who keep us organized, edited, and on track for our forty-plus episodes a year.

In addition to the advertisers the good folks at Libsyn help us find, we also enjoy the patronage of Clean Coders.

Here are the amazing people who support us through Patreon. (updated 5/2/2021)
