First thing’s first, a massive thank you to all of our readers who have donated so far in order to help us with PPP’s transition away from SBN! You can find out more information here if you want to donate:
We’ve exceeded our initial goal of $3000, but extra money will help us to really hit the ground running with the new site and maybe even pay people beyond the transition away from Vox. Thank you so much to everyone who’s donated and everyone who reads us, whether you donated or not. We’re grateful to have such a wonderful community here!
Onto the news!
