Your support will underwrite a two-year part time audio production and archiving position to continue and expand our podcasting work.

Over the past four years the Bob Thurman podcast produced 300+ episodes and has been generously under-written through the support of the Tibet House US Membership community in the form of direct grants, gently used equipment and the tireless volunteer efforts of our host, sound engineer and it's long time listeners.

We need your help to so we can continue to produce the "Bob Thurman Podcast", and to begin presenting a new "Tibet House US | Menla Online Conversations Podcast" featuring the teachers and presenters of our extended community found during the digital archiving work that ended as the Covid-19 pandemic began.

These grants allowed us to create a part time position over the past two years to implement an on-going system to record, archive and present the Robert A.F. Thurman & Tibet House US Menla Archives on YouTube and as podcast episodes.

The on-going production costs have been $8400 a year ($500 a month in Labor and between $100-200 in hosting, licensing and administrative fees) and have produced hundreds of hours of digital audio content with Robert Thurman co-teaching with friends and well as uncovered 10 + Years of recordings from the entire history of Menla Retreat.

The Tibet House US | Menla Online Conversations Podcast would focus on presenting long form teachings, in gently edited, sequential  weekly episodes with interviews with Robert Thurman and friends.

Through this work we will also be able to make available the full audio archives to current Tibet House US Menla members and to supporters of this crowdfunding campaign.

As we are a non-profit committed to the presentation and preservation of Tibetan Culture and are unable to accept general advertising we are offering unique perks to the community in the form of show sponsorship and 30 second audio spots which can be gifted to our sister organizations which inspire you!

Donate to this crowdfunding effort at the $500 level and above and we'll feature your favorite Tibetan art, culture or educational group or project as a part of our "Love Tibet" Sister Organization sponsorship program weekly "audio spots".

These 30 Second audio segments are a great way to help highlight the diversity of groups, projects and organizations working to present and preserve Tibet's culture, history and art.
