The Minimalists Podcast is often the #1 Health podcast on Apple Podcasts, and it occasionally charts in the Top 10 of all shows. Since we refuse to clutter our podcast with ads, we depend on listener support to fund production. When you become a Patreon subscriber, you gain immediate access to The Minimalists Private Podcast, including a personal link so our private episodes play in your favorite podcast app. Because we use our private podcast to discuss sensitive subjects, we have decided to limit our Patreon page to 6,000 people.

We decided to limit our support to 6,000 total patrons. Why? Because we want our private podcast to be private. This is the place for new ideas, sensitive subjects, and difficult conversations, and a small listenership allows us to go deep without fear of ridicule, judgment, or misunderstanding. Also, 6,000 people is enough support to pay for our studio space, equipment, producer, filmmaker, social-media manager, and ourselves without cluttering our podcast with ads.
