Hi, I’m Conner Habib!

You probably already know that.

You probably also know all about my podcast* and Patreon, if only because I talk about it in the video above. 


What I didn’t say in it is that Patreon has changed my life. It’s created a predictable source income for me that allows me to do all the work I do; not just my podcast, but my writing, my activism, and my scholarly work. If you’ve ever freelanced, you know how important a regular gig is, and if you haven’t, just imagine putting in 40-70 hours a week with no income security.
Okay, now that you’ve stopped shivering, let me say again, Patreon has made all my work possible.


For 2019, I’m pushing to bring my mission — to show people how enjoyable intellectual pursuits can be by  can be — to even broader audiences. And to that end, I’m aiming to produce even more content: to release an episode of AEWCH each week, to do a mini solo episode every Saturday, to compile a book of quotes from the first 50 episodes, and more.


You’ll also be funding my upcoming scholarly work project, which is set to take me 5-8 years, and which I’ll be posting about here soon!


How Patreon Works
Like the seatbelt announcement on an airplane, I’m going to tell you how this all works anyway, just in case you don’t know.
Unlike a Kickstarter (where you donate a larger amount of money to one big project), Patreon is ongoing.It's easy to sign up.You pick a donation level- $1, $3, $10, etc, to be charged every time the month turns over. Signing up only takes a minute.


Rewards
See the side bar for the rewards I've set for pledging, or click here. It’s everything from physical items (t-shirts, postcards, buttons) to curated lists, to exclusive online content. My favorite level is the $10 level, on which you get access to the Against Everyone Salon. You, me, and other community members meet to discuss topics curated by me. In other words, we create a community doing what I do on the show with guests. But do know that ALL levels are HUGELY valued by me.


Thanks for reading this. Now:
Let's make the world a weirder, smarter, more exciting, and better place together. Thank you.


(* Want to access on other hosts? You can listen Against Everyone With Conner Habib on OvercastSpotifySoundcloudPodcast Republic, and just about any podcast platform you can think of. Links to all formats are always in the show notes here on my Patreon!)
Tiers
The Button Tier
$1 or more per month
Since you’re a button holding things together, you get a button back. Keep me pinned close to you with

• The Against Everyone button, with occult-inspired font. Impress your enemies! Frighten your friends!

• That comes with a postcard or letter from me thanking you so you can analyze my handwriting and see that I am clearly a crazy person

• Plus you get instant access to the video/YouTube version of every episode

• Also, a gay hug whenever you see me.

The List Tier
$5 or more per month
• Curated lists from me each month!

Every month I post a list of cool stuff that only patrons at this level and up get access to. Some of the lists are recommendations, some are listicles with my favorite stuff. These lists could be of the top occult books for beginners, my favorite podcast appearances, the best violent short stories, my favorite cartoon characters, themed playlists, and more. These lists are calculated to make you feel like you are inside my brain. Thank you, it tickles.

(+ benefits from the Button tier)

Against Everyone Salon Tier
$10 or more per month
 No, not like a hair salon. The kind of salon where we meet and talk! So on this tier you get:

• Access to the monthly Against Everyone With Conner Habib Salon! Each month, you, me, and a bunch of other patrrons will meet online to discuss a topic I’ve chosen. At the beginning of the month, I send a very short reading or two your way, or maybe an exercise or something to do (a meditation to try, or a thought exercise to try out) along with some leading thoughts. We meet and discuss as group. Topics include Rudolf Steiner, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, symbiosis, labor politics, melodrama, spellcasting, and more!

This is my favorite tier because we get to create a community to do together what I do on the show.

(+ all benefits on the Button and List tiers)

Occultist T-Shirt Tier
$25 or more per month
 Some of you won’t be satisfied until you can actually emblazen the awesomeness of AEWCH across your bodies. And I don't blame you.

So I made t-shirts!

In addition to everything from the other tiers,

• You get the first ever Against Everyone with Conner Habib t-shirt sent to you (shipping is free in the US. If you’re not in the US, don’t sweat it, just send me an email and we'll figure out shipping together.) It features the same occult font as the button, but in white on a very soft American Apparrell tee. 

(+ Button, List, and Against Everyone Salon tiers)

Limited Edition HAUNTED T-shirt Tier
$50 or more per month
 Friends, you’re so amazing, it’s scary. 

Accordingly, at this level:

• You get the limited-edition HAUNTED t-shirt. Too haunted to show here, it features a completely different design, teaming with ghosts. This shirt is exclusively available for patrons at this level and higher, and is super limited.

(+ Button, List, Against Everyone Salon, & Occultist T-shirt tiers)

The Let's Hang Out Tier
$100 or more per month
Want to hang out? Great, me too! Seriously, if you're this awesome, I want to meet you, and also hear all about you.

At this level, you get 

• A thirty minute one-on-one meeting with me on Skype (or equivalent technology) each month*.

We can discuss a project you want to complete, the occult, politics, or just hang out and talk. 

LIMITED AVAILABILITY

•(+ all rewards from preceding tiers)

(* I provide you with multiple meeting time/date options, so there's always a bunch of times to choose from!)

Super Heroic Benefactor Tier
$500 or more per month
When you contribute $500 or more/month, we can discuss whatever it is you'd like (within reason) + you'll get everything else from the other tiers.
Goals
307 of 800 patrons
When I hit this number of patrons, each and every one of you will receive an ebook of AEWCH: THE FIRST 50. It features a short essay by me, quotes from every episode of AEWCH, and illustrations by amazing artists.
Since this amount of patrons will push me towards making this my full time job, I know I'm going to feel Oprah-esque. So why not tell everyone there's a book under their seat?
