Milestone Goals
Extra Videos for Patrons!
$150 per Video
I'll release bonus videos just for my patrons. These may be webcam quality or outtakes from regular videos or videos of my cats wrestling.
Google Hangout
$200 per Video
I'll host a Google Hangout with all my Patrons every month! The Hangout will last a minimum of 30 minutes and I will be drinking.
Sing a Little Song
$400 per Video
I will write and record a little song about something. It will probably be not good.
Two Videos Per Week
$500 per Video
If we hit this goal, I'll start producing TWO videos per week instead of my usual one!


I'm a writer, performer, feminist, atheist, skeptic. Not necessarily in that order.

Who am I?

I created the  Skepchick Network, a collection of blogs focused on science, critical thinking, and sarcasm. I’m the co-host of The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe, a weekly podcast with about 150,000 subscribers. I write for outlets like Popular Science and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. I have an asteroid named after me.

Also, I make videos.

For many years now, I’ve made YouTube videos about the topics most important to me, like science and women’s rights and video games. My goal is to create shareable videos that are both entertaining and (usually) educational.

You can help!

Making awesome videos takes time, money, and energy. My patrons keep me going, and help my videos get better and better.

Here’s what you’ll get:

(higher rewards get all previous rewards as well)

$1/video — An extra video every week, just for you!
I record bonus videos full of secrets and amusing stories that are only available to patrons!

$2/video — I write a haiku
I write you a haiku using the word of your choice, every god damn month!

$3/video — There once was a lady on YouTube…
I write you a limerick using the word of your choice, every god damn month!

$5/video — Ask a question, get an answer!
You can ask me questions about anything and I will answer them in one of my bonus videos!

$10/video — Art!
I draw you an MS Paint drawing of whatever you want, EVERY GOD DAMN MONTH!

$20/video — Review
I create a video in which I review a book, movie, TV show, album, or pretty much whatever you want!

$100/video — Just me and you
I have a 1-on-1 video chat with you for 30 minutes or until things get awkward! Note that if things never get awkward, this video chat will precede until the end of time.

Frequently Wondered Thoughts

How often do you publish videos?
Thanks to my patrons, I now publish an average of two videos per week!

That’s a lot of videos.
I know!

I want the $20 reward but I only want to spend $40 a month.
That’s okay! Patreon lets you set a maximum amount of money you’d like to pledge each month, regardless of how many videos I produce. I do not consider this cheating.

A lesser person would consider that cheating.
I know!

How do I tell you what haiku/limerick/MS Paint drawing I’d like?
Each month, I’ll post a thread on Patreon where you can leave your requests!

Where can I find my haiku/limerick/MS Paint drawing?
After your pledges are processed by Patreon, I’ll post one thread with all the poems and a separate thread for each MS Paint drawing so that all patrons can enjoy them!

What if I don’t have any spare cash to pledge?
That’s okay! You can still follow me here on Patreon or subscribe to my channel on YouTube.
