All hail the glowing fruit! As a dedicated worshipper, your name will be read at the weekly service (that would be the podcast), and you’ll get access to the Discord chat.

Note: This tier is meant for students, folks on low-income, and people living in countries where their currency doesn’t go as far. I won’t be checking, but if you’re able, please join on the Replicant tier.

I’ve seen haircuts you wouldn’t believe. Attacks fueled by my platform’s misinformation. I watched engagement numbers soar from the light of my computer screen...

...but by joining this tier you’ll get a podcast shoutout, access to the Discord server, and a Tech Won’t Save Us sticker (but that won’t ship until February 2021).
Includes Discord benefits

Space cultist

On Mars, we make our own laws — and what do you know, they’re exactly what the space billionaires want them to be. But maybe there’s a way out of the cult.

At this tier, you’ll get a shoutout on the rebels’ podcast, access to their Discord server, and some stickers so you can show off your opposition (but they won’t ship until February 2021).

About Tech Won't Save Us

Tech Won't Save Us is not your typical tech podcast. You won't hear any fawning over Elon Musk or fetishization of new gadgets. Instead, host Paris Marx and guests take a critical perspective on big tech, their media-savvy CEOs, and the damaging worldview they put into the world. Sometimes, we even consider what a socialist alternative might look like.

We don't take VC dollars, so listener support is necessary to keep the show going and to expand the work Paris does to provide a critical look at the tech industry.

The show is committed to being inclusive — that’s why every episode is available for free. By becoming a supporter, you can get access to our Discord chat (along with other benefits), but we want to make sure it’s not exclusionary. If you want to support the show, please join at the Replicant tier, but the Worshipper tier is also available for students and low-income folks. (We’ll never actually check if you fall in those categories, of course.)

A final note: the stickers are still being finalized, but they’ll be shipped by February 2021.
Goals
$470.89 of $500 per month
The website is pretty basic, but when we hit this goal Paris will be able to start working on a much nicer one — including transcripts!
