As you know, Deep Dives with Monica Perez has been available commercial-free on your favorite podcasting platform since its inception, however, the time has come to start running commercials simply to breakeven on production and other podcasting expenses. It’s a privilege to have the option to put ads in the feed – monetization is the first casualty of cancel culture! – so I hope you don’t mind the commercials. However, if you simply cannot tolerate them, you will soon have options, starting with a subscription option on iTunes called Deep Dives Premium that will give you all Deep Dives free-feed content as well as bonus content, full archive access and early releases–all commercial-free–right on your podcasting app. Once that’s up and running, we will also get subscription options working on other platforms.
The ads will help Deep Dives breakeven, but subscriptions will really put it over the top, so if you want to support the show, the premium subscription is the very best way. It’s only $4.99 per month AND the first month is free!
Many, many thanks for listening, subscribing and supporting the show!
Upcoming Live Dives!
I try to do a Live Dive! every Wednesday, if my guests can accommodate, but times (and sometimes days!) vary, so please check back here for updates. I also don’t book them all a month in advance so there will be more added as the month progresses. You can also check the platforms themselves–you can find Live Dives on twitter and rumble and usually also YouTube, facebook & rokfin.

I’m clearing out all my inventory before I move in the spring, so the merch I actually have in stock at my house has to go. My stash includes Propaganda Report logo tees in navy, black & light grey in S, M & L, Propaganda Report & DNB stickers (I’ll throw in a couple of these for every on-sale mug or tee order!) and white 11 ounce Propaganda Report coffee mugs. Click through for the tee & everything else right here. You can also find there Deep Dives mugs, which I love!!
Christmas Cocktail Party: Encore Presentation!
If you’ve never seen a Disappearing Patron Party, that’s probably because they disappear! So you might never have seen “Tipsy Monica.” Apparently, she’s a crowd-pleaser, though she gives me massive amounts of next-day anxiety LOL. Not sure I’ll ever do this again, but here is “I’m Dreaming of a White Pill Christmas with Joni, Buck & Bobby,” a Christmas Cocktail Party. Oh, and tell us what you think about the idea of doing a book club or an essay club with cocktails maybe every other month or so. Shall we start with Nihilism?? Could be a fun choice ?

Deep Dives Index
Deep Dives are my original content a la the original Monica Perez Show on WSB where my superpower was news analysis. I take the biggest headline of the day or week and dive waaaay deep to give you everything you need to know to really understand the issue and more often than not, crack the code on the agenda as well!! For a complete index of Deep Dives and only Deep Dives, click here. Below are this month’s Deep Dives….

This Month’s Book Recommendations
The Populist Delusion, by Neema Parvini…this book is making the rounds and is definitely a big old black pill or at least a paradigm-shifter. I’m going to say this is also NSFW because I have a feeling I know what it’s pointing to. What do you think?
