The only content I patronize

I was brought here by an editorial by Jamelle Bouie a couple years ago and I haven’t been able to put it down since. I consume a lot of content on here, YouTube, blogs, etc. - many of them that I found through KYE! But this is the only thing I shell out money for. The Patreon is really, really worth it (especially with Dissent in the bargain!). It’s just really rare to find a program with a point of view and integrity. I think these guys are great and I hope they make this program for a long long time.

A Comprehensive Understanding of the Right

The history of the American Right has been lost to history. You’re just not going to get more interesting and engaging content about the Birchers, Paleocons, Anti-Jesuits, Milton Friedman, William F Buckley, or really anything tangentially related to the American Right from anywhere else.
