The David Feldman Show is an independent voice in the increasingly corporatized podcasting landscape. Podcasting is now big business, and the filthy capitalists are rapidly commodifying this vibrant ecosystem, pouring millions of dollars into drowning out original voices like mine. Donate today to support independent media.

What is the purpose of a podcast? Is it to sell advertising for sheets and mattresses? Is to treat us to more vapid trivia about what goes on in the minds of celebrities? Is it to provide a stealth route for marketers to pump manipulative propaganda into our ears while we do the dishes?

That’s not how I see it. In my view, the real value of podcasting is in providing long-form discussion about important subject matters that are not covered by corporate media. We don’t need better mattresses, we need to wake up to what’s broken in our democracy.

Strike a blow against corporate media by kicking us a few bucks every month. For five dollars a month you can help us keep this show running. You’ll be supporting in-depth interviews that you won’t find elsewhere, with the brightest minds in journalism, academia, politics, and comedy.

You’ll be a well-informed citizen. You’ll understand the issues behind the news. You’ll be able to feel morally superior for having the good sense to listen to my show instead of the nth NPR-soundalike that fills every silence with hipster elevator music.

If you can’t do a monthly donation, please consider making a one-time donation. This is a small operation, so there are no tote bags, coffee mugs, or other inducements for me to offer you. The only thing I can offer is the promise of doing my best to continue to bring you the information you need to know to make sense of what’s going on in our country and the world.

If you can’t afford to donate you can help us in other ways:

This show may be a one-man band, but this one man can’t do it alone. Any help you can give is appreciated.
