I know, this has nothing to do with this specific episode (I did not even hear it up to now, but will soon), but on this page nowhere is a contact form, or email address, to which I could refer. So I misuse this comment fuction.

I wanted to mention that it is not possible to subscribe to you page with a standard RSS podcatcher or feed reader (I use Outlook and FeedDemon) because you are restricting the links on the left side to propriatary links. I managed it, but I would propose that you add a link to http://feeds.feedburner.com/FundraisingIsBeautiful using an icon like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/43/Feed-icon.svg/150px-Feed-icon.svg.png or this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/3c/Podcastlogo.jpg/150px-Podcastlogo.jpg . In this case everybody can subscribe, even by the standard function in web browsers, which you exclude at the moment.

Looking forward to hear your podcast, thanks and regards
Volker

Our organization is preparing an "ad" in a church magazine. We think it will reach the target audience of those over 65. Some of us want to include a coupon in the ad (we really aren't allowed to ask for money, just for more information or for support in general) since this age group is used to responding in that tangible way. Others are saying we should only have our phone number and website and focus more (with the limited real estate) on an eye-catching photo that embodies our mission. What are "best practices" regarding the use of a coupon? ("Yes I want to be a hero for children" etc.)
From a big fan of yours!
