About Past Present Podcast

Hi Everyone! This is Niki, Natalia, and Neil - the co-hosts of Past Present, the podcast where we look at American culture and politics today through the lens of history, and turn hindsight into foresight.

We launched Past Present in October 2015, and in the time since we have been thrilled by the thousands of listeners around the world who tune in each week to listen to us bring historical insights to political and cultural debates. Why is Pope Francis so popular in America? What's behind the corporate defense of gay rights? How does The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt manage to get the '90s so right? These are the types of questions we have tackled in more than 100 episodes so far! 

We've done all this on our very limited free time and our own expense. As we continue to grow, we need your help. We are committed to keeping this a free podcast, but we are moved by how many of you have reached out to say you'd like to financially support our work. We'd like to take you up on that offer now! 

With Patreon, you can pledge $1 per month - or more, if you like! Whatever you can give, you will get our ETERNAL GRATITUDE. And as historians, we know that's a very long time.

But wait - there's more. Just not yet. In the coming months, we'll be creating other giving tiers for those who'd like to donate more and get something in return (besides an awesome weekly podcast and our sincerest thank yous, of course). Stay tuned! 

Thank you so much for supporting us and listening to Past Present. We couldn't make history without you! - Niki, Natalia, and Neil
