Help Fund Our Work

Like what we do? Want to help us improve and expand the scope of our political reporting and cultural coverage? Between requesting public records for investigative projects, paying freelance writers, and covering ongoing travel, website, and other business expenses, doing good journalism isn’t cheap — especially for an independent publication launched on a shoestring budget.

Since we began in January 2016, we’ve emerged as one of Iowa’s leading alternative news voices, landing exclusive interviews, repeatedly scooping daily newspapers across the state on important stories, and covering other stories that the papers never did at all.
