5 Years of SpecFM

How It Started

— -

By the end of 2017 our little side project had made over $500,000 in revenue, split between 4 shows and 1 blog.

How It Changed

— -

In 2018, SpecFM made a little over $290,000 in revenue, split between 7 shows.

How It Ended

— —

In 2019, SpecFM pulled in $195,000 in revenue, split between 9 shows.

At the end of 2020 Spec.fm pulled in $145,000 in revenue, split between 9 shows.
