We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

William Shatner and Sarah Palin boldly go where no couple has gone before

Sarah Palin showed up on "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" on Friday - and brought along William Shatner. Shatner has done late night TV shows, donning serious mien and reciting some of Palin’s wacky statements. This past Friday he came on TV to read from Palin’s memoir, "Going Rogue" including passages about rapper Kid Rock and stalking sheep. Then Palin read from Shatner’s own autobiography, including – and we positively couldn’t make this up - sections in which Shatner talks about visiting an African elephant "in my underwear". After the readings, the two left the stage arm-in-arm.  Soon to be a classic YouTube clip. For more, read the AP
