Howya, whats the craic, as you know i am Matt Burke, I am the creator and host of Magic Minds Podcast based in the Liberties, Dublin 8.  I was hoping you may be able to help us. I created the Magic Minds Podcast ,"stories that have the power to inspire" in 2017.

That's our heart brand in a nutshell. We now have a make shift studio in my bedroom, with an old laptop and two cheap mics. Over the last 3 years I have spent hundreds of man hours building my dream and my community. We have followers all across the globe as well as our home grown amazing Liberties community. We get thank you messages daily for helping save people's life's, we have reunited a families who never knew each other and we have brought families back together. There is many more stories like these too. All this through the power of our heart brand to inspire using love and kindness. To date we have done hundreds of interviews and released 80 one hour podcast interviews on all our social media platforms, daily inspirational videos, and inspirational posts. our shows go all over the world but most of all we are making a huge impact in our community in The Liberties and across Dublin. All from my bedroom. We have grown our social medial followers to nearly 7k and still growing.  All this work is done on a voluntary bases by myself Andy and the team. We hope to keep on growing and inspiring people to change and improve their lives for the better through love and kindness but we need support.  As stated above our equipment is not of great quality to produce great sounding shows so that's something we would like to get support with in the form of funding?
