About Broken Earth Spoilers

Hello! Welcome to the Patreon page for the Broken Earth Spoilers Podcast. Come for the Spoilers, stay for the geology tangents! Consider this page as an overly elaborate tip-jar.

As you know, the Broken Earth Spoilers podcast is a deep dive into the hidden meanings, foreshadowings, and character motivations in the Broken Earth trilogy, written by NK Jemisin. It is a podcast designed for readers who have finished the series and are looking for deeper discussions about the trilogy, and includes frequent detours into earth science topics. 

I put a lot of time (some might say too much time) into creating the episodes and show-notes that go with them. Until now (June 2020) I have been relying on Fox and Raven Media to support the minimal costs of hosting the podcast, and have been supporting NK Jemisin's Patreon page out of my own pocket. I'm hoping that a few of my audience members would like to contribute to the podcast being able to support itself and cover my self-imposed "rental fee" on using Jemisin's books as the basis for the whole thing.

I don't really believe in having a paywall on information or community access, and I'm fairly lazy, so I'm only going to have one very low tier on this Patreon, and you can choose if you'd like to give more. As an incentive to stick with me for a while, I will promise that once you have donated $100 total I will write you an essay on whatever mineral, rock formation, or landscape you choose.

The real community engagement is on the BES Discord server. Patreons will have a few special privileges there, but for the most part it is a free space in which to access me and your fellow BES fans. I hope to see you there!
$44.31 of $50 per month
At this amount, I can afford to pay Fox and Raven Media for my hosting fees, as well as make my usual out-of-pocket donations to NKJ (as author of the trilogy) and other content creators on Patreon. I also will commit to not dropping below an episode every two weeks.
