Thank you for your interest in supporting my work! My original show (and blog) were named after an essay by Ayn Rand called "Don't Let It Go," in which she discusses the uniquely American "Sense of Life" that has, thus far, prevented our country from descending into dictatorship. (A "Sense of Life" is, roughly, a way of coming at the world, a subconscious attitude toward oneself and one's prospects for success and happiness.)

As a patron, you will be supporting my current weekly show on YouTube, "News Sandwich," my fairly regular stint as a co-host with Yaron Brook, as well as my occasional appearances on Tucker Carlson's show, my work with @AynRandBot on Twitter, and book writing. I started podcasting in 2011 with  "Don't Let It Go Unheard," which I broadcasted most weeks (sometimes multiple times per week) until early 2018, when I shifted over to co-hosting and, now, the News Sandwich format. Simultaneously with the launch of this page on Patreon, I started doing livestream video of my shows, hoping to provide more value to followers and patrons, plus reach a broader audience.

In my shows and appearances, I apply the philosophy of Individualism that underlies the American Sense of life to issues in news, politics, culture and law. I often revisit, explicitly, the components of that sense of life for two reasons: (1) to understand to what extent Americans generally, today, still possess that sense of life, and (2) to discuss ways to keep it alive in the individual (often discussing some of my own experiences as examples, because I struggle with this!).

The News Sandwich format is designed to reinforce that sense of life, because it deliberately focuses on a majority of good news stories--stories that give one hope that human beings will be able to continue to live longer, healthier, freer, more fulfilling lives.
