It's a privilege to be able to have a voice in national conversations, and I rely on many small donations from people like you to keep it up. Pellowe Talk Partners partially fund me to continually produce videos & write articles which are often published in other websites and magazines and shared widely.
Politics is downstream of culture, and we can slowly change that together. If you get any value out of this content and would like to help it reach more people, please consider supporting the mission for as little as $5 per week or month.
