The Raw Story Podcast - Becoming a Founding Sponsor!
With the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, independent media is under greater threat than ever before. We believe the time is now — to fight back. That’s why I’m excited to announce The Raw Story Podcast.
The right-wing has built a powerful echo-chamber in radio, and it’s time progressives have a similar voice online. To counter falsehoods, we’re developing a podcast with a deep bench of experienced producers and talent.
Raw Story partner Mike Rogers and longtime radio host Shannyn Moore will host. Mike’s groundbreaking reporting resulted in the Washington Post dubbing him The Most Feared Man on Capitol Hill. Shannyn is an Alaska-based radio host who will bring a fresh perspective to our work. She’s got true bona fides: Shannyn is the only radio host in America threatened by Sara Palin with a lawsuit.
We’re looking for some founding reader sponsors. You helped us bring David Cay Johnston to Raw Story. And what a success that has been!
With your support, you’ll not only be helping us to pull together the kind of team we need to bring you the best possible program, but you will also help us create a show that will attract the best-known leaders of the day.
Much of our success is because of you. That’s why I’m asking you to join us today. Can you help us? We’re looking to raise $10,000 to pay for our producer, hosts, equipment and hosting for the first four months.
Each week, The Raw Story Podcast will bring you national media experts, political leaders, and — most important — the people behind the stories. You'll hear from the Pulitzer Prize team we work with to bring exclusive stories to you, our biggest fans. All along the way, Mike and Shannyn will toss in ample doses of humor.
A one-time gift or a few dollars a month will go a long way toward making this new project a success. Thanks for your consideration, and for being a Raw Story reader.
