Join the Nomenklatura for $20 a month and we will mail you a Dig mug, Dig tote bag, or one of these five Verso books: The ABCs of Socialism, Mistaken Identity, Feminism for the 99%, Capital City, or A Planet to Win.

For every year after the first year that you continue your support, I'll send you one item of your choice: Dig mug, Dig tote bag, or another left-wing title. Once you run through everything I'll send some other left-wing swag I dig up.

About The Dig

Please support The Dig, a weekly podcast from Jacobin magazine on the politics of class warfare everywhere. We have long, in-depth interviews with left-wing scholars, journalists, and activists about politics, history, political economy, criminal justice, and really pretty much anything and everything. Jacobin is a leading voice of the American left, offering socialist perspectives on politics, economics, and culture. The Dig is doing the same in audio form.

The show is hosted by journalist Daniel Denvir, who writes about criminal justice, immigration, and politics. Dan is the author of All-American Nativism, a book about immigration politics out now from Verso Books.

We need your support so we can keep this thing alive. Past guests include Greg Grandin, Sarah Jaffe, Nick Estes, Cornel West, Naomi Klein, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Matt Bruenig, Barbara and Karen Fields, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Sarah Jones, Nancy Fraser, Aziz Rana, Mark Blyth, Wendy Brown, Diane Ravitch and Khalil Gibran Muhammad. If you have an idea for a guest, email the host at danielDOTdenvirATgmailDOTcom.

Where does the money go? Good question! It pays a full-time salary to Daniel Denvir, a part-time salary to producer Alex Lewis, part-time salaries to communications coordinators Tammuz Frankel and Gemma Sack, as well as for payments for music and tons of random overhead. It also pays for our wonderful weekly newsletter. We also spend your money on improving guest audio by hiring producers to record our guests' end of most interviews. Please note: patron "rewards" will typically be sent no sooner than three months after support is initiated. Sometimes, people drop their support early, which is totally cool, but in that case we lose money if we send the "reward" too soon.

The complete archives, searchable by guest and by topic, are here.
