Hey friends and followers, and I have been having a discussion about our Patreon support tiers - if we created a support tier at $1 USD / month, would that encourage people to sign up to support the podcast Or is it just basically the same as the current $3USD tier What do you think

Since I'm located in Canada, the lowest support tier starts at $4.50 up here, which is kind of a lot, so I thought a tier below that might be more accessible for folks around the world who want to support us, but just can't justify the $4.50/month (or however much it translates to in their country's currency).

So, we decided to poll folks to get a sense of what people might like! What do you think about our adding a $1USD tier

The announcement came hours after had a tense phone call w/PM during which Biden threatened to condition future support for Israel depending on how it addresses his concerns about & the in Gaza.

Now states are rushing to extend their condolences to the families, but they are not showing the same rush to stop the shipment of weapons to this laboratory of destruction.

How much more humanity must be lost in this genocide

Gaza is a dystopian laboratory where peoples blood flows while war technologies are tested and perfected, directed by increasingly automated algorithms that allow all human responsibility to be diluted, using technology and trivializing evil.

The slaughter and famine in Gaza is an atrocity foretold. We demand an end to it Owen Jones -Gazawar

World Central Kitchen was one of the main food distributors in the territory, providing more than 40 million meals since October.

Despite growing international calls to increase aid deliveries, the attack on the WCK convoy essentially brought humanitarian work to a standstill despite thousands of Gaza residents staring down starvation conditions.

Zomi and her colleagues were saving lives. Their deaths deserve our outrage Tim Costello -Gazawar

Killing of Aid Workers in Gaza a Mistake: IDF Chief


World Central Kitchen founder's response

The air strikes on our convoy were not just some unfortunate mistake in the fog of war. It was a direct attack on clearly marked vehicles whose movements were known by the Israeli military. It was also the direct result of his PM Netanyahus governments policy to squeeze humanitarian aid to desperate levels.
