Support Skipped History. I’ll Roast Your Friends
All for the cost of a cappuccino
Good morning, subscriber,
And thank you for tuning in so far! Our rooster-filled season finale is in two weeks, and as we approach the end of our first revolution around the Skipped History sun, I’m super excited to offer the option to pay $5 per month, aka the cost of a Brooklyn cappuccino, for more content.
Right now, I send out Skipped History three Thursdays / month. Beginning in December, paying subscribers will get one more email each month containing additional, behind-the-scenes bits of skipped history, as well as the rare satisfaction of supporting an independent historical satirist. You can cancel anytime (I won’t hold it against you), and to be clear, free subscribers will still have access to the main series, i.e. everything you’ve seen so far.
So why pay for the add-on? It’s simple: I love making Skipped History.
I put a lot of work into the series if you couldn’t tell (and I know that you can: some people make things look easy; my gift is to make them look hard). Still, it’s not my style to charge for the show, especially in the middle of a pandemic, and I’m keen for as many people as possible to see the content we’re putting into the universe.
So, for viewers who believe as much as I do in the need to confront the darker elements of our past and inch us closer to lasting change, I’m happy to offer the chance to contribute to the Skipped History mission. All it costs to support your quirky local history business taking down Charles Koch one joke at a time is $5, aka a San Francisco banana.
And from now until Christmas, if you become a paid subscriber, I’ll throw in a Skipped History style roast video of anyone you like (think: Today’s story is about Russ’ neanderthal friend Alex.) Respond to any Skipped History email with a few facts/photos about the person you’d like to roast, and you’ll have a ~1-minute video with a private link.
If you’d like to support the show but not pay for more me (I can hear my sister nodding), please share Skipped History! I’ll make you a deal, too: For every three people you get to sign up for the free newsletter, I’ll also produce you a roast video. Just respond to any Skipped History email with the email addresses of the three people you got to sign up and a few facts/photos about the person you’d like to roast. What better way to tell someone you love them this virtual holiday season than to have me discuss intimate (but please, not too intimate) details of their life?
Thank you again for your persistent warmth, generosity, and curiosity amid the insanity of this year. With your help, the Skipped journey is just beginning.
