Claire Connelly is creating a subscription journalism experiment

Hello Humans is designed to help subscribers identify rhetorical red flags and immunise themselves against a sea of bullshit.

It consists of a regular column, a weekly newsletter and an e-book. It is because of my subscribers that I have afforded the time and research for my upcoming book about omitted aspects of history, foreign policy, and economics, the myths formed in their absence, and the impact they have had on the current political environment. 

My goal is to help readers identify red flags and understand better the context of how the world came to operate the way it does. I want to enable my subscribers to make more informed and empowered decisions both at the ballot box, the checkout, the bank, and all the other domains over which we exercise control. But mostly I want people to learn how to think for themselves, rather than being defined by the paper they read or influenced by ideological peer pressure. 

I want to prove there is a market for this kind of journalism. I want to demonstrate to publishers there is a different way to do things. And I would like to help develop metrics that can put a value on reader trust.

Users can access my regular column for $3 a month$4.50 a month gets you the weekly newsletter, delivered direct to your inbox, and $10 for an annual e-book + access to regular exclusives and the newsletter. 

 Try before you buy on my Medium. 

A bit about me: I am an award-winning freelance journalist and lead writer of Renegade Inc, specialising in economics, politics, finance and tech. I have written for publications which include The AFR, The Saturday Paper, ABC, SBS, New Matilda and others. 

Given the state of...well... everything, there has never been a more important time for a strong, free and independent press. 



Trying to produce accurate, public interest journalism without getting fired or sued is a challenging and costly process. Help keep independent journalism alive by sponsoring people like me so we can keep on keeping the bastards honest.

Goals
22% complete
This base level funding will allow me to focus almost entirely on getting the book out and producing award-winning journalism. It means I won't have to take on 25 different freelance gigs to make ends meet, and I can throw all of my energy into producing well researched, public interest journalism. 

The book examines what we got wrong about the economy and how said wrongness relates to the escalating social uprisings across the developed and developing world.
