What is the Tangent Tier?

The Tangent Tier is where we post the full interviews and discussions with our helpers. Each episode of Just Answer the Question features excerpts from multiple discussions, and most of interviews go well beyond what gets included in the main podcast.

Is the Tangent Tier a longer version of the free JATQ episode?

No. A given episode of Just Answer the Question is roughly an hour-length exploration of a given topic or question that includes narrative essays and excerpts of discussions with (usually) three helpers. In contrast, the Tangent Tier episodes are just the raw interviews themselves with minimal production. Most of our interviews are ~40-60 minutes each and cover far more ground than what's used in the main episode. It's difficult for us to decide what we can use for the main episodes because there's so much interesting content to choose from. With the Tangent Tier, we can offer it all in addition to our regular episodes.
