At The Bulwark, we have three rules:
We tell you what we really think.
That’s it. That’s the secret sauce.
It turns out that the audience for this candor was much larger than we imagined it would be. And this success has given us the opportunity to grow even more.
So we’re asking you to join us.
Up until this point, everything at The Bulwark has been totally free. No paywalls. No ads. We’ve been supported by thousands of donors. And we are grateful for every one of them.
Now we’re ready to take the next step. To do that, we’re launching Bulwark+.
Here’s what’s going to happen:
This website, right here, will remain totally free. Open to everyone. No ads.
And starting today, we’ve partnered with Substack to host our newsletters and podcasts. Of those, Charlie Sykes’s flagship Bulwark Podcast will remain open for everyone. So will Mona Charen’s wonderful weekly roundtable show, Beg to Differ. And so will Jim Swift’s wildly popular daily newsletter, Overtime.
We’ve always tried to do special things for the people who support us. So for people who contribute to The Bulwark from here on out, we’re going to offer you access to Bulwark+.
With Bulwark+, members will get Charlie’s and JVL’s daily newsletters. And they’ll also get access to two podcasts—The Secret Podcast and The Next Level—that will be only for members.
You can join us, right now, by clicking here:
Here’s the thing: The last four years have sucked. And a lot of times it feels like we’re fated to live in the worst possible timeline.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Together, we can build something better. We know you get it and we hope you’ll support it. If you can’t for whatever reason, we get that too. And that’s why we’re working to keep most of our work free.
If you’re able and willing, Bulwark+ will be a way to support what we’re doing here, together.
As a wise woman once said, there is no fate but what we make for ourselves.
So welcome to Bulwark+.
Come. Join us. We’ve got a country to save.
