The Anti-Social Studies podcast teaches you the history you actually need to know with none of the pretense of a professor or the oppression of a textbook. But Patreon members get a whole extra podcast: "Quick History!" Exclusive to Patreon members, I'll walk you through the big "Water Cooler" topics for the week; you'll hear my immediate reactions to breaking news; and you'll hear me answer Dumb Questions* from my friends, family, and students. These mini-episodes will keep you in the know in between Anti-Social Studies episodes (you will be able to listen to these on your Apple Podcast app or directly on Patreon!)

Members will also become a part of the Anti-Social Studies community! Join me for special history-themed events like online movie nights, trivia competitions, and AMA sessions where you can get all of your "dumb" questions* answered by someone who won't make fun of you (too much.) You can even submit topics for future episodes or even be a guest on the podcast!

*These questions are not, in fact, dumb. But they are questions that you may feel dumb asking as an adult like, "Where is Syria and what's going on there?" or "What's a tax cut?"
