Delivering the Mueller Report, piece-by-piece without political commentary, as a podcast. Due to the wide public interest in the document, this project started with the belief that it should be available for anyone to hear. And, for most of us, sitting down to read through the report page-by-page is unrealistic. Making this available in an audio format that many of us will be able to digest, without biased commentary, is the goal. Because there are costs associated with production (time, equipment, hosting fees, etc.), we are asking anyone who would like a hand in producing the audio to pay whatever amount they wish based on the value-for-value model.
