This tier doesn't come with any perks or rewards, but I sincerely appreciate any and all contributions.

For  $5 per month, you get a couple of things. You'll get a link to an RSS feed exclusively for my supporters on Patreon. I'll post at least one bonus episode per month to the feed. You'll also get to help me pick one reading per month in a support-only poll.

When you first sign up, you can choose to provide your mailing address. If you choose to do so, I'll send you a personal, handwritten thank you note --- because I want to personally thank all of you.

For $10 per month, you get all of the lower tiers' benefits and access to a weekly newsletter featuring my writing and seasonal readings based on the church calendar.

I'm Jared. I'm a philosopher by training and a lover of the Christian tradition.  I grew up in a Christian home, but we simply didn't engage much with Christians beyond the writers of the New Testament. Since rediscovering my faith in my twenties, I've developed a passion for theology, spiritual writings, and liturgy. I host two podcasts to try and share this passion with you. 

Matins is a weekly podcast and occasional blog about Christian history and the Christian life. Each week for the podcast I select, read, and reflect on a text from some great Christian in history.

Augustinian is a biweekly podcast about the life and work of St. Augustine of Hippo. Each episode is an in-depth look into one chapter of a work of St. Augustine's. Currently, we're reading through the Confessions.  

I'll never run ads in my podcasts. There is simply no way to include advertisements in a way that doesn't compromise the mood I'm trying to provide for listeners. But there are expenses --- especially since the podcast require that I dig through old books to find good content. So, I need some direct support from listeners. Thank you for considering, and most of all thank you for listening!
