Q: What company owns "The Humanist Report?"

A: We're not owned by any company. We're independently owned and operated by Mike Figueredo, the host.


​Q: Is THR like any other podcasts?
A: In terms of format and topics we discuss, The Humanist Report is very close to the likes of The Young Turks, The Kyle Kulinski Show (aka Secular Talk), and The David Pakman Show. With respect to smaller YouTube channels, individuals that watch The Benjamin Dixon Show, The Tim Black Show, TYT Nation, and Progressive Voice will probably enjoy THR as well.

Q: What is the THR video/episode schedule?
A: We record new episodes every Wednesday and release segments from that episode throughout the week. The episode in its entirety is typically posted the following Thursday, but is available for members and Patreon patrons the day after it's filmed.


Q: Is The Humanist Report on TV or Radio?
A: No. Our podcasts can be viewed on YouTube and HumanistReport.com, and listened to on iTunes and SoundCloud. We're currently looking to expand to more formats after receiving requests from viewers and listeners.

Q: Are you with any progressive networks?
A: As of March of 2017, we are part of TYT Network.

Q: When did "The Humanist Report" launch?
A: We filmed and uploaded our first video on June 18, 2015.

Q: Why are there advertisements for the NRA or Trump on your YouTube videos?
A: We can't control what types of advertisements play before our content (just like we're unable to control what types of ads Google displays on this website). Since we're listed in the "news and politics" category, Google/YouTube will automatically play anything they think is relevant.


Q: Do the companies that you're affiliated with/sponsor you (Amazon, Audible, Lootcrate, Gamefly, etc.) try to influence your views on political issues, and/or pressure you to not focus on certain issues?

A: Those companies don't monitor our content. We're enrolled in the same generic "sponsorship" programs as many other YouTubers. In fact, anyone with a podcast or a website can join here. Amazon's affiliate program is akin to Google's Adsense program, where anyone can join and promote their products for commission. When it comes to other companies such as Audible, Lootcrate, Gamefly, etc.—again—we're enrolled in the same program as other YouTubers with companies such as Impact Radius, where you can sign your website or podcast up, and then they provide you with different companies you're able to use ads for, hence why you see many YouTubers promoting the same companies (typically Amazon and Audible), because we're all enrolled in the same affiliate programs, and none of us are in direct contact with these companies. If a company did try to influence our views, we would not be associated with them. Thankfully, with these affiliate programs, YouTubers can earn commission for referring their viewers and/or visitors to these affiliates without ever having to talk to the companies in question.
