Thank you so much for joining us here on Patreon! We believe real people want real conversation and we’re thrilled to have you join the Exploring Minds community.

It's no secret that modern day communication could use an overhaul. With social media echo chambers, irrelevant political pundits, and outdated broadcasting models, we're offering an alternative for those yearning for more substance.

Exploring Minds is a long form, conversational-style show committed to asking questions about the complex issues that affect our lives today. Our goal is to provide you with in-depth context from economics to technology and culture to politics. Exploring Minds is for the curious among us who take nothing for granted and are willing to explore viewpoints and opinions outside of their comfort zones.

For this to be successful, we need a robust community dedicated to developing a deeper knowledge of the world around them. We ask that you contribute your own experience and expertise to our platform by taking advantage of our exclusive perks.

Participation is easy:


  1. Click the red “BECOME A PATREON” button in the top right corner (or at the bottom of your screen if you’re on a mobile device)
  2. Choose from our different tiers of monthly membership, each with their own insider perks! **Keep in mind that the higher the tier, the more perks as you’ll also receive all benefits from the lower tiers!
If you want to browse the options right away then you can just take a look to the sidebar right here on this page (or keep scrolling on mobile devices) to see the membership tier options now.

Your support means everything to us, and literally keeps us going. We are working towards building a community of like-minded individuals that crave deep knowledge over sensationalism and reject the current media model. What you see now is just the beginning. With your support, we are working towards building an entirely new platform committed to the free and open discussion that is necessary to push our society forward. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will help us achieve that. We are looking forward to hearing from you, and from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

The community that builds around our show will be essential to healthy discourse and unique perspective. Our primary goal is to build a strong, supportive, and healthy community. We believe that controversial and complex ideas need to be dissected and discussed within the confines of a healthy and respectful ecosystem. We don't ask that you agree with anyone on our show, but we do ask that you listen to them. The same goes for your fellow community members.

If you're tired of the old broadcast media model, please consider becoming a Patron and actively participating in the new media landscape. There has never been a better time to participate!
