Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week


Free Time, Cheap Credit, Generous Listeners.

For 22 years, This Is Hell! has been manufacturing dissent, interview by interview. As the show gets bigger, and we create more content, the bills are piling up. Now we need your help to make bad news even better.

We're raising funds to build a studio, launch an archives site, and become less broke. In that order.

Support This Is Hell! every month via Patreon and get access to a new subscriber-only archives podcast and more rewards.



We have merchandise now to thank you for supporting the show.

  • A big, sturdy tote for $20 donation.
  • An enamel camping mug for $25 donation.
  • A black t-shirt for $35 donation.


Read this annoying part before donating: Please make sure to list the items you want in the text field. Take off $4 for each additional item (so two totes would be $36, or a mug and a shirt would be $56.) Don't forget to make sure your shipping address is correct. Patreon subscribers get $5 off each item, let us know if you're a patron via the text field. Sorry about this annoying part, PayPal isn't built for this and we're bad at making money. Still working on it.

Email alex at if you got questions, I'll get you sorted out.






Help even if you're broker than us!

We understand that this economy is a barren hellscape, that's the basis behind like half of our interviews. If you don't have any money but want to help us out, please share our interviews with people you know. Retweets, faves, shares, likes and Soundcloud embeds get the word out about what we're doing on the show, and that's worth more than all the money in the world. Well, not exactly. It's worth more than no money, so we'll take that too.
