About The Muckrake Podcast

When my co-host Nick Hauselman and I discussed launching a podcast, the idea was to start a project that approached politics from an angle that had been largely, and unfortunately, ignored. We wanted to cover the developing crisis with more nuance and dive deeper than just the regular headlines and wanted to give listeners a historical and philosophical experience that attempted to bring order to worsening chaos.

Now, after dozens of episodes and thousands upon thousands of downloads, we're ready for the next step. With this Patreon campaign, we're planning on expanding our coverage and providing cutting-edge content that you can only find with The Muckrake Podcast. With your help, we're going to tackle feature-length audio documentaries, nightly coverage of events like national conventions, presidential debates, and election night reaction. Your patronage will make all of this possible and entitle you to a plethora of benefits and exclusive content, all while supporting a truly independent project that isn't afraid to tell it like it is. With this help, we'll avoid corporate sponsorship, which has a corrosive effect, and be immune to any attacks by belligerents looking to hurt our show or community.

Honestly, we couldn't have done any of this without your support. We have been humbled, time and time again, by the kindness and dedication you've shown. Please join us in this next phase because, unfortunately, the threat of rising fascism and the developing American crisis make this venture more important and necessary than ever.
