Good morrow, Sassy Comrade. Please consider feeding me some cash. For I am Helen, modestly remunerated authoress of Earnestly Marxist works and also Helen, non-remunerated hostess of an Earnestly Marxist Podcast.

Yes, the world needs Another Earnestly Communicating Marxist just a little more than it needs another burning coal. .But (a) surely, the revolutionary proletariat needs its reserve army of unemployable entertainers and (b) I'm here now, so let's get busy with the bullet points.

Support Helen's Leftist Podcast because it: 
  • sounds more like proper radio and less like rats performing mixed martial arts in a public toot
  • is uttered in (a) prevalent English (b) the only-briefly-annoying Australian accent  
  • provides mild laughter  to tens, perhaps dozens, of class conscious comrades

Support Helen's Leftist Writing because it:
  • is not generally awful, and is sometimes amusing 
  • is often about telly, ergo a Fun and Sassy covert introduction to Socialist Themes
  • is an all-hours gig in 2018, but indexed to a 1985 cost-of-living

I should concede that I can live on freelance earnings and have not had to subsidise these for some time by telemarketing, a trade in which I do not excel. However, I would like to have a nap,  visit the dentist occasionally and perhaps add to my collection of communist t-shirts. (Which I wear with mocking detachment and  full revulsion for the state capitalism of the USSR etc.) 

I also dare to ask for dosh as I (a) am fuelled to create by the guilt of your patronage (b) have what my physician describes as "poorly developed executive function", or similar; I may be misquoting. Whatever one calls it, aparently it explains my tendency to have arguments and get myself tossed out of jobs.

If you are skint and would like to receive my rubbish newsletter FOC, sign up here, or flash your phone whatsit at this pattern-y thing:


All in all, this Patreon palaver seemed like a thing worth trying. It did feel as though I were having a bit of a lend, but when I saw how many well-to-do big-name grubs commanded large sums,  the exercise seemed relatively harmless.

The podcast will be available free to all, and not just patron-comrades. I aim to offer a nice new episode every fortnight.  A vulgar-but-insightful *exclusive* dispatch is available weekly to comrades who cough up. Comrades who cough up a larger gob of the money commodity may instruct me to write about whatever they fancy.

Look. You get the vulgar-yet-insightful weekly account of late capitalism and other things that shit me thingy, obviously.  I offer one annual favourable description of you, or unfavourable description of someone else, on the podcast. This will be uttered in elaborate and/or crude language, per your preference, and shall continue for no fewer than sixty of your bourgeois seconds.

Clearly, the vulgar-yet-insightful whatnot is yours. Just as clearly, the loving or cheeky tribute to your person on the podcast. (Not that a single comrade has yet shown any desire for this.) And, something else. I'm quite good as a Fake Referee for rental properties, for example? No. Too intimate. How about I write you an arresting Facebook status update? I'm not bad at that.

So vulgar-yet-insightful weekly etc for you, the use of my powers of abuse or charm on podcast AND I will write one quite good email, post or letter full of passions (sexy or enraged, your choice) per year upon your request.  Oh, and a sassy status update for your social media, custom written for you.

If they were any good, I'd offer you my ova. As those eggs are powdered, let me shower you in praise. And all absurd "benefits" afore-listed.

In the unlikely case comrades hoist this whining senior to 4 figure height, she will repay their kindness with a podcast most unkind. A special Top 20 Countdown of Shit Living Thinkers will publicly revile all your least favourite Jordan Turdersons, Harrises, Pinkers, “woke” liberals and Power Feminists! Who could resist? (Apart from nice people.)
