[00:00:08] Gerry Scullion: Hey folks, and welcome to a shorter and special update and everything to do with this as HCD many of you have been reaching out and asking, where are the latest episodes? And if you look at your feed on Spotify or Google or apple or any of those places, You will see that there's been some changes on this as HCD

[00:00:29] Gerry Scullion: first of all, I've been enjoying the summer months over here in Europe, even though it's been pretty miserable. On raining and, we're hoping that things are going to get a little bit brighter. And get some more of the summer sunshine that we love to see. So I have not been releasing episodes as frequently. Over the summer in July and August, but in the background. What we have been doing. Is reworking and recreating. New structures on how [00:01:00] we actually deliver content to the community.

[00:01:04] Gerry Scullion: What I mean by this is we're now moving towards a premium model. And why we're doing this is because we want to create a sustainable model. A business model. That surrounds all of the episodes. And all of the content that we've created over the last six years.

[00:01:22] Gerry Scullion: So a few questions. First of all, what's going to change to the existing setup. Well, you'll be able to access everything that's ever been created. Forevermore. On Toby. this is hate

[00:01:38] Gerry Scullion: Where you can listen to and read the transcripts. And absolutely no calls, nothing is going to change there. But where there will be a change. Is inside your podcast player.

[00:01:51] Gerry Scullion: You will only be able to get access to episodes released. In the last six months. In your native podcast player, [00:02:00] if you want to get access to absolutely everything. Over 300 hours of what I consider to be world-class human centered, independent content. You will have to subscribe to the premium model. And with that, that's not us being greedy. It's also literally just trying to make the costs to produce this content. Many of you. I know Nova. The reviews and everything. That we look at and see from time to time. Are all very positive. But as we get very close to the 1000000th download.

[00:02:35] Gerry Scullion: We think now is the time to start leaning towards a premium model. So, if you subscribe to a premium model, what do you get?

[00:02:43] Gerry Scullion: Well, you get an ad free stream. You'll gas, uh, all of those episodes available inside your podcast player. You'll also get peak previews. To future episodes and you'll also get [00:03:00] included to a special space. Where you're able to ask questions and see who's going to be upcoming on the podcast. So you might get the chance of asking a question to some of our special guests.

[00:03:12] Gerry Scullion: As well as the fact that you will get exclusive discounts. We do get opportunities. To provide discounts to the community. And first and foremost, they would be going to the premium subscribers. We're not asking for a huge amount, but we realize it is. Still a substantial amount of money per month. It's four euros 99 per month. And that's debited monthly. And you can cancel. At absolutely any time.

[00:03:44] Gerry Scullion: I hope you understand why we're doing this. It's really important to us to be able to create that business model around. Not to become really rich, but just to become sustainable. Um, I want to make sure that what I've created and built over the last six years. Is managed to sustain [00:04:00] itself for another six years. So, if you do like what we do. And you want to support us, please think about becoming a premium. Subscriber the link is in the show notes. And we also have another capability there. If you do have a loved one or a friend, or if you work in an organization where you want to make. Our subscription. I gift you can do that too free by visiting. The link in the show notes folks as always. I thank you for listening, everything that you've done so far in supporting me in my own journey and making this as hate CD or reality. Is always appreciated. So, um, I would love the support if possible, from the community on this.

[00:04:46] Gerry Scullion: Thanks so much on hopefully catch you soon. When the new episodes, all star getting released. On the September, the first, and I am excited to share that there's lots and lots and lots of episodes being recorded over the summer. [00:05:00] And I'm excited to show you and share. All of these wonderful conversations that are now fully edited and in the can. And just waiting for your listening ears. Thanks folks.
