Announcing Our New Subscription Service!

Every month, I set a goal for a new way to improve We Are Libertarians. This month, it is redoing our Patreon and donation system. Our main product is, and always will be, the Thursday night podcast. We now average 7,500 downloads with a peak episode of 12,000. (I have heard Tom Woods is at 20,000.) We are adding 1,000 new listeners a month. It still isn’t good enough for me. I want to be at the top of iTunes. I need your help to do it.

The only way I am able to improve this new media empire is through the cash our listeners donate each month. It’s become an entity that requires $100s a month to operate. This doesn’t include compensation 10 to 20 hours a week Greg and I spend on prepping, building, editing, and podcasting the content you’ve come to love. It’s our love too.

In 2016, I just simply said that I couldn’t cover the cost anymore, and started taking donations by telling the truth: “If you’d miss us if we disappeared, then we need you to pitch in or else we will have to.” 

Over 100 of you have. We now have 46 people that donate once a month. After concluding the building of our video program, a subscription service to properly thank them was my next project.

I’ve tested, demo’ed and researched software, and Patreon just kept coming back as the best choice for us.

As of today, we are offering Patreon rewards for monthly subscribers. You can see them here.

If you are a PayPal subscriber, you will have to cancel your current recurring payment and switch to Patreon to get the rewards. If you don’t do this, your card will still run, but without the goodies.

If you are a Patreon subscriber, you must amend your pledge to the new monthly pledge. We are switching from a per-episode plan to keep confusing down for those unfamiliar with Patreon.
If you are NOT a subscriber, then what are you waiting for? For many new libertarians, We Are Libertarians is the first podcast they hear. We are on the front lines of spreading the libertarian message and finding a sense of belonging for the politically homeless. Be a part of that change.
