2023 In Review + We Need Your Help!
A moment of gratitude for your support and a call to action to help us expand the show!
We hope you had a pleasant, energizing, and non-politicized (!) holiday break surrounded by your loved ones. As we walk in the first few days of the new year, we first and foremost want to express our gratitude for your interest and support of our work. This podcast was originally a spontaneous, spitballed idea in one WhatsApp call in March of last year.
“It would be fun to do a long-form podcast together….” - Jay
One thing lead to another and now we have the innovative Illusion of Consensus platform featuring in-depth podcast episodes, original investigative articles, and long-form Q+A sessions with our loyal audience members.
In 2023, since our May launch, our platform has grown immensely. We started with a few hundred subscribers and are now close to reaching 20,000!
Our work has already been featured on The Joe Rogan Experience, Stay Free with Russell Brand, The DarkHorse Podcast, The Kim Iversen Show, The Ben Shapiro Show, The Free Press, and other major outlets.
Our podcast catalogue has tremendously grown in our first few months. We’ve done major podcast episodes with the likes of Alex Berenson, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Kevin McKernan, and other striking dissident voices.
While we have achieved a lot in 7 months, we have big ambitions for 2024.
In line with our theme on The Illusion of Consensus, we will be hosting the relevant guests and breaking down areas of consensus most members of society have bought into, such as climate science, transgender “care,” treatment of diabetes, the origins of chronic pain, the gut-brain connection, using psychedelic therapy to treat trauma and depression, the dangers of antidepressants, how we wrongly approach mental health in the West, and so much more.
We are hoping to expand and professionally produce our show to take it to the next level. We have started the early phase of communications with a couple of major video platforms, but we need to first focus on improving the quality, seamlessness, and consistency of our show.
This is where you come in. For those of you who are already paying subscribers, we cannot thank you enough for taking us this far in what was originally a wild experiment in an oversaturated market of independent Substacks.
For those who aren’t paying members yet, we would greatly appreciate your support to help fund professional production, theme music, and graphics for our show.
For a limited time, we would like to offer you a New Years 10%-off discount for all yearly memberships:
We also have reduced our founding member option — which gives you access to pitching topics/guests to Rav and Jay over email — by 30%! Instead of paying $350, you can now become a founding member for $250! Click the button below to access the reduced founding member option:
Lastly, for subscribers that really believe in our project and for whom finances are not an issue in their life, we have now (inspired by Colin Wright’s Substack!), opened up a donation link if you would like to give us a one-time transfer to help support our show:
Also, we are in the process of finding high-quality podcast sponsors. If anyone has any in mind, feel free to leave it in the comments section below. While we don’t have the budget yet, we will be looking to hire a few months down the road to help us produce our show and manage this growing platform. Anyone who may be interested can DM me on Twitter/X (@ravarora1).
Thank you for your continued support in our mission and we hope to continue exposing false consensus and providing new, refreshing perspectives in all areas of your life.
