小明們誠摯邀請大家成為我們的「吃瓜明眾」！ Ming Strike warmly invites you to become a Ming’s Friend!
運營Podcast三周年又五个月，我們决定推出自愿赞助型的付费会员計劃，與我們自主出版的第一本zine同步發佈！ After three and a half months of podcasting, we've taken a significant step by introducing a sponsored membership scheme, coinciding with the launch of our inaugural zine.
這三年多走來並不容易，我們各自經歷了不同了人生階段，對這個podcast也開始有不同的想法，一直在思考：到底誰是我們的「觀眾」？海外華人的定位讓我們注定沒辦法成為主流論述，但如果你还在聆听，也许你会愿意跟我们继续这个旅程。 The past three years have been quite a journey. Each of us has traversed various life stages, prompting diverse reflections on our podcast. We've thought over our audienceship. Building a platform as overseas pan-Chinese, we understand that we would always be dealing with our in-between-ness. Yet, if you're still tuning in, perhaps you'd consider continuing this odyssey alongside us.@
感謝朋友們三年來的支持和陪伴，過去這些年，我們一直用公開免費的方式把播客當成是一個passion project。但在這個時間點，我們也希望能作更長遠的打算，從線上到線下，繼續推出更多辛辣、活潑、直白、嚴肅的內容。 We are immensely grateful to our friends for their unwavering support and companionship throughout these three years. Initially, we treated the podcast as a labour of love, embracing an open and unrestricted approach. However, at this juncture, we aim to chart long-term plans, intending to unleash more compelling, vibrant, candid, and thought-provoking content, both digitally and physically and in person.
