About Bourbon 'n BrownTown
Bourbon ‘n BrownTown (AKA "BnB") is SoapBox Production and Organizing’s affiliate podcast which pairs critical analyses of media, culture, politics, and everyday happenings with the tastiest of spirits. With the occasional help of Chicago’s most talented and creative activists, filmmakers, academics, and social entrepreneurs, BrownTown (friends and SoapBox colleagues Caullen Hudson and David A. Moran) unpacks current events, social issues, and gives personal insight into various topics.

Patreon is a patronage, or membership-based, service for artists and creators that allows them generate predictable, recurring revenue without giving up creative control to a larger entity. This includes a tiered membership system with different perks; think IndieGogo/Kickstarter but a continuous monthly contributions as low as $1 (see below).
