When the show was launched, a number of people made custom pledges. However, due to a recent change by Patreon people donating amounts other than the lower tiers no longer gain access to the tiered benefits. In order to ensure such patrons have access this tier has been created. New patrons should be aware that all of the tiers from $10 and above receive the same benefits as $8 patrons. 



About Politics Theory Other

Politics Theory Other is a podcast on all things political, theoretical, and (occasionally) otheral. The show aims to bring the work of writers on the radical left to a broader public and to encourage popular engagement with work that is sometimes considered "academic" or "difficult". The show also aims to encourage engagement between the Marxist left and those working in the traditions of cultural studies and post-structuralist theory. 

Whilst the podcast is lots of fun to do it's also pretty labour intensive and there are some associated costs (including purchasing a decent microphone so that I don't sound like I'm recording in the bathroom, Soundcloud hosting, and a subscription to a recording programme for online calls that helps the audio to be notch above skype call quality), but really the main thing is the amount of time spent doing sound editing and preparing for interviews. 

If you're a fan of the show and would like to support it any donations would be hugely welcome. Donations will allow me to spend more time on sound editing to create a more professional sounding show, as well as finding and preparing for guests. Long term plans, depending on funds, include producing interview transcripts, a PTO website, and creating debate and roundtable format episodes. 
385 of 400 patrons
If the number of patrons reaches 400 that will allow me to devote time to transcribing interviews so that they will be available both as audio and as text.
