This is an enormous labor of love that I hope to continue expanding.  There will be constant blog posts, videos, podcasts, the MOOC courses, a discussion forum, and more.  But this requires a lot of time and effort, and it also means a lot of cost.  At the moment, I am simply asking for whatever level of support you can provide.  I’m not quite certain if down the road I’ll be setting up a subscription-based format (not likely) or use something such as Patreon (more likely) and unobtrusive advertising to help.  At the moment, though, it’s just me.

Pouring time and money into this, contributions are greatly appreciated.

Brewminate will include a blog, contributing writers, videos, podcasts, ebooks, a Flipbook publication, interviews, onlline courses, and more as time goes on.  Those who know me understand this.  I am an acadmic and a writer – it’s what I do.  The courses will be focused in history for the most part with video lectures from me and material provided.  $100 donors will have lifetime access to any offerings on the site.  ALL contributors will get to choose at least one.

Much of the blog, podcasts, and videos will be centered around current events as well.  We are political animals after all, whether we like it or not, and I am a very active one.  This is where my journalism degree and experience come into play.

Thanks again, and whether you can contribute or not I certainly hope you follow!


The link will take you to PayPal, but you do not have to register for PayPal. I have a merchant account and this allows you to either use your own PayPal account or simply use a credit/debit card. The price is set at $0.00 – you simply change that to whatever you would like to contribute.
