Unf*cking The Republic

A smart, funny and searing political podcast sprinkled with a healthy dose of profanity. Each episode is a deep and delicious audio dive into a particular subject that helps explain how we arrived in Bizarro America, the funhouse mirror version of what was originally intended.

Why Substack?

Independent journalists are moving to Substack to take back their publishing voice and intellectual property rights, unfettered by corporate involvement. Even though our content will always be ungated and free—both in audio and written format—we join in the effort to support independent journalism.

Substack also provides us with a crisp and simple interface to display the essays each episode is framed around. This is important because these essays double as a transcript for our show, which aids in our accessibility mission.
