Welcome to our Patreon Page!

We started The Politics Guys because we were tired of all the brain-dead, talking-point-riddled, partisan yelling and screaming in the media. We thought we could give people something better than that - that people deserved better than that - and so we started our own podcast.

We strive to be a sane & sensible alternative to the sensationalism and superficiality of so much of the political media. Our goal is to present listeners with conservative and liberal views on the key issues of the day, but to do so in a way that focuses less on emotional outbursts and demonizing 'the enemy' and more on finding common ground and arriving at a deeper and fuller  understanding of politics and policy.

It's a big job - a lot bigger than we initially anticipated - but we're committed to the task of providing our listeners with substantive analysis of the week's news as well as in-depth interviews with people worth hearing from. 

We greatly appreciate your support, and welcome any and all feedback. With your help, we'll be able to keep carving out a little chunk of the Internet for honest, serious, and substantive political conversation. 

Thanks!
Mike, Jay, Trey, and Will

All of our great supporters get access to an exclusive 'after-show' where we talk about stories that didn't make it into the regular weekend show, our semi and non-political thoughts of the week, and anything else we happen to think of. It's a quick (10-15 minutes or so) informal discussion where we cut loose and have fun. We hope you like it!
Fans
$5 or more per month 27 patrons
At this level, you get the exclusive after-show and access to Mike and Jay's in-depth policy discussion series. The multi-part series, which begins on November 24, 2018, will focus on the key issues dividing Republicans and Democrats, including health care, immigration, gun rights, abortion, taxes, the regulatory state, economic inequality, and much more.
Benefactors
$10 or more per month 3 patrons
Benefactors get everything included at the Supporter and Fan levels plus your choice of a Politics Guys mug or tote bag with our logo once you've been a benefactor for three months. (Not that *you* would support us at this level and then drop down if we sent you a mug or tote bag immediately, but we're told it's good to put in a provision like this because other people sometimes try to game the system.) Be sure to let us know whether you'd like the mug or tote bag.
Sustainers
$20 or more per month 1 patron
Sustainers get everything from the previous levels (remember to let us know whether you want the mug or the tote bag) as well as an invitation to our Politics Guys Slack discussion group, where we'll be talking about stories, ideas for the show, and anything else you'd care to bring up.
Producers
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
Producers get everything from the previous levels (remember to let use know whether you want the mug or the tote bag) plus Executive Producer credit at the end of every show as well as an invitation to a twice-yearly Skype conference call where we'll talk about the direction of the show and solicit your input.
Goals
100 – reached! patrons
Once we get to 100 patrons, Mike will format, upload, and release his 12-part series on the basics of American Government, including an in-depth discussion of his book, Navigating the News. He'll also include the accompanying PowerPoint slides. It's like having the experience of taking Mike's online American Politics class, but without those hefty college credit charges (and no exams, either).
