Subscriber features

(Yeah, this part still needs to be rewritten, haha…) Become a patron of this digest for $6/month and you will (1) gain access to past releases, (2) get the option to receive dailies via email. More features coming later this year!

Payment options

  • Automatic monthly payment

  • One-time payment (½ or 1 year)

Note: PayPal only. (Other providers are not available in my country.) If you don’t want to have your credit/debit card connected to PayPal, you can just disconnect it immediately after making an one-time payment.

Notable subscribers
