When someone visits we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


As part of the registration process for our mailing list, we collect email addresses. We use those email addresses to send you emails when new posts are added to our website and any other updates and information that pertains to this website. Your email address will only be collected and added to our mailing list once you have signed up with your email address via the form on our website, or if you have contacted us and specifically asked to be added to our mailing list. We do not rent or trade email lists with third-parties.

We also collect email addresses for a separate mailing list, which is used only for Premium Content subscribers. These email addresses are collected upon registration for our Premium Content service. We use this mailing list only to send emails when new podcasts are available on our website and any updates or information regarding our Premium Content service. Again, we do not rent or trade email lists with third-parties.

We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our mailing services.

When a customer registers via Paypal, we will ask the customer to email us a preferred password so that we may set up their account for access to our Premium Content. Passwords can be changed by the customer at any time.
