Why become a Useful Idiot?

For $5 a month, you can become a member of Useful Idiots! Get extended interviews every week, exclusive Thursday mini-episodes, podcast versions of Monday Mourning live episodes, and access to the Absurd Arena, our weekly discussion board.

It’s an exclusive, informational, funny, sad, weird, and absolutely absurd club, and you’re not going to want to miss it.

Main podcast episodes air on Friday mornings.

Join us Mondays at 10am for Monday Mourning, our live show on Youtube where we watch the Sunday morning news shows so you don’t have to. And right after at 11am catch us at callin.com for more with Katie and Aaron.

Tuesdays are the Absurd Arena, the Useful Idiots discussion board where the top commenters get their comments read on that week’s episode.

And Thursdays we have an exclusive mini-episode for subscribers. There’s a lot of content here.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new episode, article, and discussion in the Absurd Arena goes directly to your inbox.
