The Importance of BE-ING-FIT! (BEFIT!), Patrons on the Hall of Fame, the Honour Roll and more!
Please remember BEFIT when thinking of ways to support or get in contact with this podcast. BEFIT is quite clearly an acronym, designed to help you remember the varied ways you can help WDF through monetary support, morale support or just spreading general awareness.
B is for: the blog, which in fact is only a button press away! It has also been known to stand for the book which is out now, and which you order from here!
E is for: email, email@example.com Send me an email and say hi!
F is for: Facebook: When Diplomacy Fails maintains an active Facebook page, so give us a like and make sure you keep up to date with our sometimes hectic release schedule!
I is for: iTunes, the world's biggest podcatcher and a critical source of statistics for myself, iTunes is the podcatcher for much of the world's podcasts. Many third party podcatchers piggy back on what iTunes has done, so you should do the following if you both use iTunes and are in any way interested in WDF: rate the podcast; gimme a nice 5*: review the podcast; tell it like it is, but please be nice!; subscribe to the podcast feed; this way the podcast comes directly to you every time it is released, meaning you won't miss a thing!
T is for: TELL ANYTHING! We're not fussy, seriously just spread the word - tell anyone who will listen about the podcast. If you know people, if they have ears, and you have a mouth, then you have no excuses. Also, T has been known to stand for T-Shirts, but you can find out more about them below...
So that's BEFIT! Thanks in advance for all you've done to support the humble pod. It all means so much to me that you guys get in contact with me, download my work, and continue to support in droves. I couldn't ask for better history friends! If you feel like you've done all the above though and want to give that little bit extra, then continue reading...
When Diplomacy Fails Podcast relies upon history friends such as yourself to keep fighting the good fight. Over the years I have been amazed at your guys' generosity and willingness to hand over your hard earned cash to me, all in the name of the podcast. This is the place, just in case you were looking, where all such ways to help out the podcast can be located.
T-SHIRT TIME! Thanks again to Rob at historytees.net for helping me set this all up; if you know me at all you'll know that I've been looking forward to setting this in motion for years! At last, we have tshirts! How do you get them? Simply click on the link, choose your size and colour, and remember to enter in the promo code WDF16 to both get 10% off AND send a little bitta commission my way. If you buy 3 items or more you get free shipping, so go nuts! Ideal for Christmas, birthday, Hanukkah, Easter or the Feast of St Peter (??!) these t-shirts are sure to be a blast with all true history friends! Wear them with pride, knowing that you have helped me in such a big way. Remember though, that if you wish to become a top tier Patron, a t-shirt will be yours as part of the deal, so don't cheat yourself out of some 'free' goodies!
If you wanna show WDF some real love, then take a photo of you or your friends wearing a WDF tee, or enjoying a book, and you shall take your place below in the When Diplomacy Fails Podcast Honour Roll selection of photos. Thankssssss again guys - happy shopping :D
