A Magazine of Politics and Culture

About Us

Welcome to the luminous and cheery world of Current Affairs.


Our Story

Current Affairs was launched by roommates Oren Nimni and Nathan J. Robinson via a Kickstarter campaign in 2015, which promised “a new print magazine of political analysis, satire, and entertainment” that would “bring wit, color, and verve back to print media!” With $16,607 of their $10,000 goal raised, the magazine Current Affairs was born!

Since that successful Kickstarter campaign, Current Affairs has been entirely supported by subscriptions, purchases, and donations from readers. No large corporate donors, no opaque foundations, and no advertisements have contributed to Current Affairs. We have expanded to include a podcast, which is entirely funded by generous Patreon donors, a News Briefing, and videos.

Current Affairs Inc is registered with the Internal Revenue Services as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with EIN 83-1675720. Gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you are interested in helping to fund our work, or know of individuals and organizations who would be, please email [email protected].


  1. How can I pitch/ask a question about my subscription/get in touch with Current Affairs?

    • Current Affairs will never sell your information. Read more in our Privacy Policy.
  3. How can I help?
    • We frequently receive offers of volunteer work or advice, which warm the deepest cockles of our hearts, but which we cannot accept because of our firm commitment to never pay subminimum wages. You can help by subscribing, donating, and sharing our articles to your friends, family, and enemies on social media.
