Hi guys! It's nice here, isn't it? I'm Marius 25, a jobless American Studies graduate from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Since I can't find (desired) employment in Germany, I decided to start a podcast. When People Rise is a podcast on social change. What inspired me is today's societal problems like income inequality, precarious work, loss of dignity, climate change, the young people struggling to find a meaningful job (sounds familiar) etc. My goal is to document stories of injustice which makes people rise to demand change. I've already made six episodes  on 0 budget you can find on SoundCloud. For example, my first interview is on Europe's biggest gas field and its damaging earthquakes due to Shell and Exxon's extracting gas there for decades. This led thousands in the Dutch province to protest against their government. Since it's virtually impossible to develop the podcast on basically no budget, I ask you the Patreon community for your support. That will help me exponentially improve the podcast, make it more fun to listen to. I think stories like these can in themselves drive the change for a more just society.

First I want to see if you'd listen to something like it; or see value in such a podcast. 

My immediate goal is to work on another episode. I'm still thinking about the topic (anyone rising up anywhere?). Don't hesitate to throw in your suggestions. 

In the long-term, I want to raise money to attract a co-host that'd be willing to join in the podcast (any volunteers?). 

Later, I'm hoping to travel where protests happen to document from there.

Obviously, money is needed for the tech upgrades.
