Congressional Dish is an independent, ad-free, listener-supported production.
This value-for-value business model keeps Congressional Dish accountable only to you, instead of to the companies who pay for advertisements. This business model also represents a refusal to sell your valuable time. At Congressional Dish, you are the valued customer, not the product to be sold to the highest bidder.
This business model essentially functions on the honor system and so if you have found value in this podcast, please contribute to make sure Congressional Dish can continue to inform and entertain you for many Congresses to come.
You are an important part of this project.
All financial contributors get a verbal thank you during the Thank You segment of each episode and have an excellent chance of having a short message read on-air.
Contributions can be made anonymously upon request.

Venmo is a mostly-free service that allows you to pay friends for … any reason! Since we’re all friends here in the Congressional Dish community, and because all payments to Congressional Dish are 100% voluntary, we can use this service too.
Venmo allows you to pay using your Venmo balance, or you can link your bank account or debit card. You can also pay using a credit card (a 3% fee applies for credit card payments only).
Venmo payments should be made directly to your host,
