Hey Listeners!

Just a dollar a month makes a huge difference for us!
Kicking off the new season, Adam and Ryan dive into a new FreeThink episode, in the style and length of our Conversations. In this episode, they continue to make the case for why the world needs anthropology and social science thinking more than ever. They also speak in favor of interventionist anthropology in recognition of the plethora of social issues, subaltern experiences, cultural miscommunications, and civil tensions which are in the media’s focus more than ever.
With This Anthro Life’s new season we really want to emphasize the importance of our Patreon campaign. Through Patreon, Adam and Ryan will engage listeners more directly through new content, special episodes, video, and more. For the last 5 years, TAL has been almost entirely self-funded (though a huge thanks to the few folks who have so generously contributed to the cause) and this reality makes it difficult to produce the quality content you, our listeners, have come to expect. But, we’re dedicated to persevering and continuing because we believe in the anthropological focuses we discuss, the content we produce, and in you, our listeners. We’re incredibly humbled by the fact that we are soon to celebrate our 30,000th subscriber and that our community continues to grow. We want to celebrate this with you. Please take a moment to view our Patreon page and choose which bracket is best suited for you. With any donation you make, know that you are directly contributing to TAL and your support means the world to us. TAL could not be produced without you and it will continue to grow because of you.
