Popula’s free for the first month, but after that we’ll have a metered paywall. If you like our work and support our goal of creating groundbreaking, accountable, incorruptibly archived, reader-first alternative media, please consider this…


Galaxy Brain Membership

Join us during our Grand Opening Spectacular Month and receive half off your Galaxy Brain Membership.

Yes! This month only, your $84 Galaxy Brain Membership is half off. For just $42 (or $4/month, a slightly higher rate) you’ll enjoy a full year of Popula, including almost-unbearably exciting features like Radio Sermon with Brother Layne, Sunday Funnies edited by Vanessa Davis and Trevor Alixopulos, and Sasha Frere-Jones’s experimental sounds on The Western. Also! Galaxy Brain Members receive special gifts, offers and benefits such as Members Only podcasts, zines, posters and more.

a beautiful Calendar, our gift to you for becoming a Galaxy Brain Member of Popula

Our first Members Only gift to you when you subscribe at the annual $42 VIP rate is the Popula Bodega Calendar, which has tear-off monthly sheets through December 2019. (Eventually we will have an online Bodega to go with it, but for now we just have the Calendar—it’s your free Galaxy Brain Member gift from us to THANK YOU! for being one of our very first most beloved readers and supporters.)

Thank you for joining Popula, and investing in the future of journalism and press freedom with us.
