Subscribers, TODAY IS THE DAY!
We are celebrating Milwaukee Day by offering our biggest subscription sale of the year!
It’s 41.4% off for all subscriptions on 4/14 to celebrate the 414 and the city The Recombobulation Area calls home.
This means that a full-year subscription that’s normally $50 is available for about $29, and monthly subscriptions that are normally $5 are available for $2.93.
I know, right? It’s a great deal!
We’ve had the good fortune to welcome a whole lot of new subscribers to The Recombobulation Area over the past few weeks. If you’re looking to upgrade to paid, now is a terrific time.
If you found us recently because of our coverage of the race for Wisconsin Supreme Court — being promoted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Ruffalo, Bradley Whitford and Heather Cox Richardson! — or you found our publication another way, we’d love for you to take advantage of this opportunity and support a full year of the bold, local, independent journalism we produce here at The Recombobulation Area.
In fact, our promotion with Bradley Whitford is still going on! Head over to our Instagram and check it out because you can win a private zoom with him. Yes, really!
Over the last year, this publication has gone from a part-time project to a full-time business. We want to continue to be able to grow and continue to do more big things, and we want you to be along for the ride.
We want to produce more content. We want to launch a new podcast. We want to put on more events. We want to work with more contributors. There’s so much more we want to be doing. We’re already kicking the tires to make a lot of that happen. But with your support, we can supercharge these efforts so The Recombobulation Area can really take flight.
We’re not like most media outlets. We get almost all of our support directly from our readers. We’re really, really proud of that.
Most of what we publish is free to all. We want the work that we do to be available to everyone. Every once in a while, we’ll put some bonus content behind a paywall, but we’re not asking you to subscribe for the extra bells and whistles, we want you to subscribe to help continue to grow our reader-funded publication and support the work that we do. Every time someone upgrades to paid, it maximizes our impact and gives us an opportunity to do more of our award-winning work covering news and politics in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
And we need more coverage of politics in this crucially important swing state. The media landscape for news and commentary in Wisconsin has been changing dramatically in recent years. Corporate chain ownership of many newspapers across the state has meant cuts (a lot of cuts) and changes to these vital sources of information – the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel doesn’t even have a dedicated “Opinion” section anymore. That means new independent media outlets like The Recombobulation Area and others need to play an important role in filling some of those coverage gaps and providing a fresh perspective and bold voice on the issues that matter.
Milwaukee is home for us, and we love Milwaukee. And we love Milwaukee Day. So, celebrate with us, support a growing local business, be part of the change we need to see to the local media landscape, and subscribe.
Let’s do this, Milwaukee. Let’s recombobulate.
