We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

Thanks to Drug Czar John Walters, the Director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), for the fact that drug war propaganda can now be podcast directly into your head.Apparently, ONDCP's podcasts will deliver "speeches, events, interviews, and the latest information regarding national efforts to reduce drug use in America.""I am pleased that we will be able to provide this service to the increasing number of Americans who use personal audio players to stay up-to-date on the latest issues affecting our nation," as the emperor of the drug war himself puts it.Oh, joy: the advent of PodPropaganda. Stay tuned!

Be a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with rewards at each level, including a magazine subscription, books, tote bags, events and more—all starting at less than 17 cents a day. Check out the new Sustainer program.
