A Magazine of Politics and Culture
It is a felony under United States federal law1 for any newsmagazine over two years old not to have an accompanying podcast. Thus, once Current Affairs hit its two-year anniversary in 2018, we were obliged to introduce The Current Affairs Podcast, your ear's greatest hour of politics and culture.
Our editorial team brings you a biweekly mixture of discussion, analysis, and assorted auditory delights. From Studio H-3 in the Current Affairs World Headquarters, our podcast is a refreshing alternative to the stale and tedious audio products to which you have grudgingly become accustomed. We’re cutting through the nonsense, bursting open ideological piñatas, and presenting a friendly, relaxed, and upbeat guide to everything that matters in the world (and some things that don’t, but are still fun to hear about).
Our bonus episodes frequently involve interviews with experts, writers, activists and policymakers. While we make many of these episodes available to all listeners for free (especially when we think the subject is a matter of public interest), Patreon subscribers will get access to all interviews, and also get early access to the episodes that are made available to the public.
Patreon subscribers also get access to special “bonus” episodes, which air every Thursday and alternating Tuesdays. Subjects range from world literature, to oft-neglected issues, to the team’s favorite reality TV shows. Whatever your tastes, you will find something to fascinate and enchant you.
Premium Listeners get twice as much content! For just $5 a month you can hear two new episodes per week of The Current Affairs Podcast, on subjects ranging from political history to science fiction to every other conceivable subject.
Every Premium Listener gets the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing they're supporting our work. Your money enables us to pay our hosts, improve our infrastructure, and embark on bigger and better projects.
