August 2022 Newsletter


After a little glitch in the system preventing me from uploading media into last month’s newsletter, we are back in action! I am in the process of upgrading and I’m going to make some changes to the site (and the newsletter!) going forward.

Brad will continue to post all his content, free and premium, as well as connect with listeners on and we will both continue to post all content, commercial free, on I am going to convert this site, however, to and use the Press Pool and membership features to connect with the community. The Press Pool (click on “Dive” in the menu above) will continue to be a place where we can post articles and comment on them for all to see, and the membership feature is a free way you can message me and each other directly.

I have made the decision not to put anything behind a paywall for as long as I can continue to cover my production expenses by ads alone. If you find value in what I am doing & would like to help me create more content, please contribute to my other expenses by making a one-time donation here and also please subscribe to and review my Deep Dives feed on itunes here–that feed is for the superfans who know the inside track–it’s commercial-free and includes regular bonus content…check it out on your favorite podcasting platform and see what you’ve been missing!

Special: Propaganda Report 11oz mugs 20% off PLUS free stickers 🙂

  1. Love how the TPR community feel is budding and growing with every newsletter. I love seeing the photos & art & artisanisms of what others are doing. Plus having all the latest TPR juice in one place is conveniently convenient.
    Nice work on the Deep Dives show, Monica. Loving the top n tail audio track. Just fits you perfectly. It has a classy, curiosity type of feel.

    So glad to hear your Mom has fully kicked the ‘whatever it was’ out of her existence ♥️?

    • Ha ha ha! Yes … when the 93 year with congestive heart failure can beat it, ya gotta wonder (but if you weren’t already wondering then you’re probably hopeless!!) I agree on the beauty of our contributions – including the qoodles!! I’ll be counting on you next month when I’m ready to relaunch the press pool & messaging stuff here – I know I can!!
