About Model Majority Podcast

Why should you support the Model MAJORITY Podcast?

In January 2017, we (Kevin Xu and Tony Nagatani) started the Model Majority Podcast out of our respective living rooms, because we thought there was a lack of minority voices in podcasting (and media in general), thus important issues and perspectives were not being heard. With experiences in the White House, Cabinet agencies, and 10+ political campaigns, we wanted to share our takes on current issues and amplify the Asian American voice however we can.

The Asian population in the U.S. grew by a whopping 72% from 2000 - 2015. If this rate continues until the time we retire, Asian Americans might just be one of the largest racial groups in America! So, we may be the minority among the minorities for now, but our voices, stories, and issues deserve to be amplified.

And Model MAJORITY Podcast is doing exactly that.

Because of your support, we've been invited to cover two Democratic Primary Debates in person (in Detroit, MI and Westerville, OH), and have had our voices featured in the New York Times, NPR, the New Yorker, and NBC Asian America.

What will we use the money for?

We will use your generous support to:
  • Fund future reporting trips to important political events in critical swing states
  • Keep the podcast sustainable for many many years to come (right now it’s funded out of Kevin and Tony’s meager salary)
  • Keep the podcast ad free forever (so you don’t ever need to worry about skipping through interruptions about Squarespace/Blue Apron/Casper/Sonos/etc.)
  • Normal operational cost of producing a weekly podcast in perpetuity (website, hosting, occasional promotions, time…)

How does the reward tiers work?

Tier I: Crazy 88 Club
  • Goal: 88 contributors at $8 per month

Tier II: Globalist Elite 88 Club
  • Goal: 8 elite contributors at $88 per month
