Hello Friend,

While we hope to get $5 a month as a baseline of support from all of our dedicated listeners, we realize that sometimes you may want to give a little but $5 might be stretching it. (We get it! We're graduate students!)  So, if this is you, think about becoming our friend and supporting us for $1 a month. You'll get everything the $5 supporters get. Don't worry. And if you're ever in a position to give a few extra dollars, we'd appreciate it.

As our friend you'll get access to our "Last Call" episodes, which feature:

• Follow-up discussions to the main shows
• Interviews of various guests and comrades
• Reading series
• In-depth discussions of some finer points of philosophy
• Occasional writings 
• Responses to listener (i.e. your) emails/feedback
• And other various impromptu recording sessions which we'll keep as little tokens of appreciations for you all

Thanks for listening!

Hey Fam,

We're so happy you appreciate what we do! We generally want to keep things egalitarian and offer the same additional content to our $1 and $5 supporters. We're not trying to create classes over here, you know? Don't look down upon your $1 comrades :) We like to think of the $5 level as a support option for those who really like what we do and are in a position to give a little bit more. But your efforts go a long way in helping us do what we do, and your support will not go without enthusiastic gratitude.

Thanks for listening!
