Jesse Ventura turns to Substack
Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has a new gig: Newsletter scribe.
What's new: Ventura is launching a Substack featuring "brand new original articles, exclusive podcasts, and video commentary" on current events, philosophy and his own life.
Driving the debut: The pro-wrestling alum, who most recently hosted a show called "The World According to Jesse" on the now-defunct RT America, said he picked the platform because it's "one of the few places left where free speech still reigns supreme."
What he's saying: Ventura vowed to produce content that's "uncut, unfiltered and unleashed" for subscribers.
- "My pledge to you dear subscriber, is that here you will always get my honest truth. I will call it as I see it and say whatever is on my mind, just like I did all those years ago sitting ringside with Gorilla Monsoon," Ventura writes in his debut issue today. "And if I change my mind or am proven wrong? I will be the first to admit it."
What's next: The newsletter is free for now. A spokesperson said subscriptions will likely cost $5 a month, or $50 a year, in the future.
