Global Dispatches is creating A world affairs podcast

patrons


Welcome to my Patreon page!  

Named by The Guardian as “One of 27 Podcasts to Make You Smarter” (along side shows like This American Life, Planet Money and Radio Lab) Global Dispatches is a podcast about foreign policy and world affairs. The podcast focuses on global issues that often don't make the headlines -- but should!  

Patreon is a platform used by many podcasters as a way to reward their most active and engaged listeners. By becoming a premium subscriber you'll join an unlock access to special content and gain other rewards, including my exclusive daily news clips service for global affairs nerds.  

One thing I have learned while trying to create a sustainable media enterprise is that the big companies that take out ads on podcasts don't generally want to advertise around issues like the conflict in Yemen or the plight of refugees seekers in Myanmar. But these issues matter! And since you listen to the show every week, I am guessing they matter to you, too.  Where the advertising model fails, the listener support model must rise. 

That is where you come in. 
 
If the podcast is part of your daily routine, become a patron of the show.  

Lots of Love,
