Would You Like A Free Signed Copy Of The Laughing Liberally Book?

As I’m sure you know, the holiday season is fast approaching. Well, I have a great progressive gift idea that will let you skip the Black Friday madness. Regular listeners probably know how I have an essay in the great new book, Laughing Liberally: Letters To The American Voter, along with lots of other great progressive comics, including Lee Camp, Negin Farsad, Frank Conniff, Katie Halper, Will Durtz, and more.

So, how would you like a FREE, signed copy of that book?

Well, if you donate $10 a month and become a Matthew Filipowicz Show Bad-Ass Member between now and the end of the year, I will send you a free signed copy of the Laughing Liberally book!
Laughing Liberally The Book

The Matthew Filipowicz Show is a 100% independent show. We do not have corporate sponsors. We do not have corporate backers. We currently can only afford to do two shows a week. Our goal is to become a five show a week operation. Once we reach 100 members, we’ll be able to go to three shows a week. Will you help us make that first step by donating $10 a month and becoming a Matthew Filipowicz Show Bad-Ass Member today? And again, if you do so, we’ll send you a signed copy of Laughing Liberally: Letters To The American Voter.

When you become a member, you’re not just investing in this show, but you are amplifying countless causes in the greater progressive movement. There are activists and journalists who are doing absolutely phenomenal, essential work. But that work is being ignored or in some cases, suppressed by the mainstream corporate-owned media. When you become a member, you are not only helping what we do, you are helping amplify what they do. You also get something from us at the show as a thank you, and not just a signed copy of the Laughing Liberally book.  Every month we record a Bad-Ass Members Only Bonus Episode and the episode for the month of November has just been posted!

So, skip the Black Friday madness, support independent progressive media, and get an awesome book for yourself or the favorite progressive in your life.  Donate $10 a month and become a Matthew Filipowicz Show Bad-Ass Member today.

-Matt
