History is not made by the actions of a few rich and powerful individuals, like so much of the history we learn in school. History is made by the combined everyday actions of hundreds of millions of us: women, men, youth, people of colour, migrants, indigenous people, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, workers, the unemployed, housewives - the working class. Our project is dedicated to all those who have struggled in the past for a better world, and who continue to do so now.
As well as our podcast and social media outlets we are working on building an interactive website and global map of people's history. We are committed to being completely independent, and making our history available to everyone, so we have no adverts and apart from a bit of bonus content we don't put anything behind a paywall. We are not academics or experts, we are just ordinary workers doing this on our own time to try to help educate and inspire a new generation of activists with lessons from the past.
So the more supporters we have more we will be able to do: we will be able to make our podcast better quality, better researched and more frequent, and we will be able to remunerate more fairly the individuals who currently put in countless hours unpaid or with a token payment, we will be able to pay for more research materials, we will be able to fund design of the website and an interactive phone app we have planned, we will be able to transcribe and translate more materials into more languages, and we will be able to fund additional research to uncover unknown parts of our history.
Depending on level, our supporters get early access to all of our podcast episodes, plus bonus audio, discounted or free merch, annual reports and other benefits.
So we would love you to join us to help record and popularise our grassroots, people's history, as opposed to the top-down accounts of most history books.

At this level, our project will be sustainable in the long-term, and we will be able to continue to devote as much time to the WCH podcast as we have through 2019, to release episodes more consistently, to do more research for the WCH project and remunerate our tiny core team for around the minimum wage.
