, A Community Driven Podcast That Focuses on News, Media, Politics, and Technology

Reporter Dan Patterson, former Gawker Media ad guy James Del and politics professor William Stodden have banded together to create, an independent podcast that looks to its own community to help shape each show. They are currently seeking funding through Patreon in order to cover the costs of running a podcast.

Informative, funny, controversial and conversational: Each week we dive deep to analyze the week’s essential stories.


  • News links & headlines.
  • Talkback: Your feedback, your links, your opinion.
  • Discussion about issues that matter with insight from special guests.

Our rationale is that a thoughtful community of opt-in news contributors has never been more important than now, an era defined by high-volume, short-attention media.
