Dear Listeners,

As you all know, we're Nish Weiseth (Cosmopolitan, The BBC, Deseret News) and Amy Sullivan (TIME Magazine, Yahoo News, New York Times).

Together, we make up the podcast Impolite Company.

We chose the name Impolite Company because the rules of etiquette say that you're not supposed to talk about either politics or religion in polite company--presumably because those two topics can get people a little riled.

But if this is where being polite has gotten us, friends, it's clearly not working.
CLEARLY. 

This show, the content we deliver, the commentary we thoroughly research is for YOU. We want you to better understand the intense beliefs, positions, and feelings that move and divide us all at this critical moment in our history. We try to provide you with as much context and perspective as we can--we sit down with journalists, religious leaders, and political figures to talk through difficult subjects.

We're diving into conversations that nobody else is having with the depth and nuance that no one else is providing. These discussions are important, and the way we have chosen to deliver them to you is resonating with thousands of people the world over. 

Here's the deal. We love what we do. WE LOVE IT. We will continue to do it no matter what.

But at the end of the day, podcasting costs us money. More than we anticipated. Creating Impolite Company requires production costs, web hosting costs, our time, and other expenses. Aside from our lovely and hard-working producer, Constantine, it's just us.

We're it. We don't have a team of people, we don't have assistants. We asked, but our pets have proven to be no help whatsoever.

It's just us. 

So our costs aren't that enormous, since we're not paying a bunch of people to do the work for us, but we do have some overhead.

And when it comes to making money for your work on the internet, there are two models:

1. You can acquire advertising -- you're beholden to advertisers.
2. You can offer membership -- the people who listen have the opportunity to buy in.

We've entertained the idea of going after advertising, especially after we were approached by a couple of ad networks. But at the end of the day, we would rather give the influence to help us shape the show to you -- the people who choose to listen to us every week.

The people who willingly choose to listen to Nish scream into the void about Donald Trump. (We're not naïve, that takes some commitment.)

You can donate as little as $1 a month. Or you can give us $100 a month. Whatever you're comfortable with and whatever you can do to support the show is a huge help and it goes a long way. 

We'll always be up front with you about where the money is going--what our costs are and how we're using it--so that you can trust that every dollar is being used wisely. And if all you can give is $1, we'll take it! Your support will not only help us cover our costs, but will allow us to travel for interviews, attend events where we can have conversations on a live stage, and expand our content in really creative ways.

(Another great thing you can do is subscribe to the show and get others to subscribe, too! Or take it a step further and give us a rating on iTunes.)

We're so thankful for you, our listeners. We hope you'll consider supporting the show financially so that we can expand the reach and work of Impolite Company.

Yours,
Nish & Amy
