Dear readers and supporters of The Dispatch,
We’d like to make you an offer you most certainly can refuse.
A brief explanation first, though.
We had a plan. It was pretty simple. On October 8, we’d begin a slow rollout of our editorial offerings—a “soft launch” in start-up jargon. Then, we’d ramp up—more newsletters, new podcasts, eventually a website—until we formally launched The Dispatch on January 7. Everything would remain free through mid-February 2020 and then we’d ask people to become paying members.
